Carnaval Santiago

Santiago’s carnival is in a nutshell, a spellbinding mix of colors, flavors, smells and heat strong enough to astonish the most audacious, and overpower all five sense in a single blow. Renowned for its originality, wow-factor, and popular appeal, the annual carnival held in July (this year from the 21st to the 27th) reaches beyond the city’s half a million inhabitants, seeing the return of natives living elsewhere, and arrival of foreign visitors attracted by the famous event and eager to participate in the this truly authentic expression of Cuban culture.
