Fodor's Review

If you can't be in Remedios on December 24 for Las Parrandas celebrations, you'll have to settle for a visit to the Museo de las Parrandas. The city is divided into two neighborhoods—El Carmen and El Salvador—each of which creates its own floats, costumes, lanterns, and fireworks as part of an informal competition during the festival. Though no winner is ever declared, most townspeople will tell you that not only does their neighborhood win every year, but the rest

of Remedios isn't even good competition. The museum has faded photos and paraphernalia from past Parrandas.
