Fodor's Review

The spirit of one of the Caribbean's most vibrant street parties, Santiago's annual July carnival, is recalled in photos and newspaper clippings, floats, costumes, and musical instruments. For a true sense of what carnival is like, stop by at 4 pm Tuesday through Saturday or 11 am on Sunday for a performance by music and dance troupes. The 45-minute spectacle of colorful costume, Afro-Cuban rhythms, and stirring song will have you planning your next trip to coincide with

the main event.
