“In the center at the highest point of the island of Flores, rests a bustling park of vendors and performers overlooked by a white cathedral. On the basketball court, performers display a traditional Mayan dance. In particular, the colorful costumes retell the story of the Conquista, when Spain invaded and conquered Central America. The costumes of Conquistadors are notable by their costume: European styled hat and clothes with a mask donning markings of blond hair and blue eyes.”
