The beach fires are where everyone jumps over the fire or sea waves three times to make a wish, It is about night and day, fire and water, Fire purifies and water recuperates, refreshes and rejuvenates.

This wonderful evening can go on till the early hours, and many stay to see the sunrise. During the festival, there is always a spectacular firework display.

I hope you all have a wonderful San Juan, and all your wishes come true.
