The Carnaval

You don't even need to be in the center of the action to know you're at the center of the greatest annual energy field created on the planet....but it helps.

 

With over 200 different parties popping up over the week, there is no doubt you will get your fill of partying in this historic seaside city.

 

The Carnaval in Salvador is considered the most dynamic in the world in terms of popular participation.  Millions of people from all over the country and all over the world descend on Salvador.  The main feature of Salvador's Carnaval is not a spectacle to look at but an event to join in.  In this sense, it maintains the traditional notion of Carnaval as a time when rules can be broken and social barriers crossed.

 

Carnaval in Salvador is it, baby!  Nowhere else comes close.
