I am thinking of taking a trip to Colombia for the Barranquilla carnival in the beginning of March. For anyone that doesn’t know about it think of the carnival held in Brazil and you’ve got yourself a basic idea of what we’re dealing with here. Carnivals are a mainstay in South American culture and I cannot wait to experience some for myself.

If anyone out there has been to the Barranquilla carnival I was wondering if you could help me out with some of the basic details:

  • Is there a price increase during the week for accom/food
  • Cost of tickets
  • Cost of alcohol and food in general
  • Best city to participate in
  • Best places to visit outside of carnival week
  • Safety
  • Essentials to pack
  • Essential experiences
  • Anything else you think I’ve missed …

Any answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated
