Carnival was the reason I chose to go to Cuba as my trip this summer, I got pulled in by a tour Geckos Adventures were doing to experience Cuba along with Carnaval. And because of this part of my was worried that I might be disappointed by the actual thing, that I'd hyped it up and it wouldn't meet any of my expectations. But as we sat watching a live band on our first night in Santiago de Cuba I knew that I was in for an amazing few days , I was blown away just by that.

And a magical three days it absolutely was, from being served tortillas and getting by on spanglish in a local's house, to creating an international band. being hypnotised by hips at the parade and all round just having a massive amount of fun. Santiago knows how to party.

And that's all I'm going to say about that because I think the photos speak for themselves.
