Carnival: Saturday Of The Battle Of The Flowers

The carnival of Barranquilla, declared by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, is the popular festival par excellence, not only for the Caribbean but also for the whole of Colombia. It has an uninterrupted tradition of more than a hundred years, and is one of the most inclusive cultural coexistences in Latin America, during which the entire city and its thousands of visitors mutate, as if by magic, into leading actors and spectators. It’s a time of collective, contagious enjoyment.

      The Carnival begins on Saturday with the Battle of Flowers, the main event itself - the party, and at the same time the most important and most awaited parade. It is a great parade of floats, led by the Queen of Carnival, followed by folk groups, people in colorful costumes, cumbiambas and carnival groups. We start our tour at 10:00 am and head to the “Cumbiódromo” on the Via 40, one of the main roads of the city, which runs parallel to the Magdalena River and serves as the stage for the main carnival parades. As we walk the last 1,500m inside the safety zone to the location of the boxes, we have time to breathe in the collective euphoria that unleashes the most anticipated party of the year. We enter a box in the best location to enjoy the parade that takes place from 12:00 pm to 05:00 pm. Once finished, we walk to the meeting point where your transport is waiting to take you back to your hotel.
