Note….I have just been informed by Domenico from http://www.costamayamagazine.com that the original article was wrong and Carnaval in Mahahual will be on March 13 and 14. The reporter posted the wrong date in the sipse.com original article. Sorry for the error, I have just corrected the dates.
There is not much going on here today, so I thought I would share this article from costamayamagazine about Carnaval here next weekend. Busy month here we have Carnaval and Crossing Borders Festival coming up. Also lots of tourists from cruise ships, and tourists from USA and Canada down here escaping the cold up north.
I translated from Spanish to English the article below.
