  • Hi, we are thinking of booking for carnival time. We have never stayed during these festivities and as our apartment is almost on the Plaza, we wondered if the celebrations and music continue overnight or will finish at a reasonable time. We have been over during New Year and have been awake all night (drinking and dancing) till 5 or 6 am, this one special night we enjoy, but maybe not every night of carvinal. Has anyone an idea from previous years what we should expect. Many Thanks

  • The celebrations go on well into the night, especially the big night Saturday.

    If you love carnival join in until you are so tired you will sleep through the rest of it.

    If you don't enjoy carnival, stay further affield or choose alternative dates.
