The wildest of the parties, don’t miss it.Cover yourself in mud and let loose.
The last two days are the best
Though festivities occur in advance of Carnival for several weeks.
Fly into Piarco International Airport (POS). Book travel early (one year in advance is not at all jumping the gun) and make sure you get there at least a week before Carnival Monday. It’s worth it to watch the island build up its head of frenzy in the days before the big event.
This is a festival full of intimacy as everyone gets in each other’s business and certain events can be rough. Leave jewelry and valuables at home and watch your alcohol consumption.
