There’s nothing better in life than carnival. My first experience was in Rio (see Guns & Butter: Rio de Janeiro Travel Guide). The second was in Trinidad (see Last Minute Trinidad Carnival Guide! Everything You Need to Know And Stuff You Will Figure Out On Your Own!). The third was supposed to be last year in Kingston, Jamaica. It was cancelled again this year, and I have started planning for attending next year. Since April, I have been checking Marriott’s website. Since April, it shows that points redemptions are unavailable.
When I booked Trinidad’s carnival, I did it literally last second (see How to Book Trinidad’s Carnival Last Second for Free*). I am optimistic that rooms will open, but I will probably have to use the same last-minute strategy. Celebrating carnival will be the best way to return to a life of debauchery.
And now for some questions. Have you been to any carnivals? Which one is your favorite?
