Carnival in Uruguay

Carnival is a Show!

A DISPLAY OF JOY, COLORS AND FANTASY FOR 40 DAYS ALL AROUND THE CITY, COUNTRY STREETS AND STAGES, SPECIALLY IN MONTEVIDEO  ON FEBRUARY.

THE "CARNAVALEROS" WITH THEIR CUSTOMS LEAD THE SHOW WITH GREAT SKILLS AND CREATIVITY. VISITORS WILL NEVER FORGET HOW THEY WERE PART OF SUCH LOVELY FIESTA.

THE GREATEST FEATURES OF CARNIVAL ARE "CANDOMBE" AND "MURGA". THE PARADE STARTS AT THE MAIN STREET OF MONTEVIDEO CALLED "18 DE JULIO".

 

  

  

  

 

 

 

 

 

ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT IS "LAS LLAMADAS". IT IS VERY COLORFUL AND VIBRATING. THE CROWD ATTENDING THE SHOW DANCE AND GO ALONG WITH THE RYTHM OF THE DRUMS. CANDOMBE, DANCERS AND "LUBOLOS" CREATE A FANTASTIC SHOW.

CANDOMBE IS A TRADITION AND THE DRUMS ARE THE ESSENCE. THE MAIN ATTRACTION ARE HUNDREDS OF "TAMBORILEROS" PLAYING AND THE "VEDETTES" DANCING. IF YOU TRAVEL TO MONTEVIDEO OUT OF SEASON, MONDOEXPLORER SUGGESTS THE VISIT TO THE MUSEUM OF CARNAVAL WHICH WILL DEFINITELY MAKE YOU PLAN A VISIT TO THE CITY DURING CARNAVAL FIESTA TIME.
