Carnival in Las Tablas is the most popular in the country and is celebrated on the four days before Ash Wednesday. Carnival, people divide into two groups called “tunas” (dance troupes with wind and drum bands). One tuna represents “Calle Arriba” (Upper Street), and the other comes from “Calle Abajo” ( Lower Street). They each elect a queen, and the whole craziness begins where they dance and hurl insults at one another to determine which is the better group.
It is important to make hotel reservations before you go to Las Tablas, because accommodation is scarce during Carnival, but you can always bring your tent. Without a doubt Las Tablas has the best party in the country.
