Carnaval in Merida

The “Caribbean Voyage” Mérida 2015 Carnaval will take place from February 11-18 with big surprises. Once again Yucatecans are getting ready for our big Carnaval party. Due to its success last year, the Ayuntamiento de Mérida, headed by mayor Renán Barrera Concha, will repeat the event’s location at Plaza Carnaval, located at the Xmatkuil fairgrounds south of the city.

Plaza Carnaval awaits you with ample spaces which will offer attendees a variety of activities and great entertainment for the whole family. With the theme of “Caribbean Voyage”, come enjoy the best party in this city, with activities for all: children, teens, adults, and disabled. With order and security as priorities, this Carnaval will be filled with magic, color, and joy. Everyone is looking forward to the presentation of stars like Ariadne Díaz on Fantasy Saturday; Cuban model and dancer Lenny de la Rosa on Bachata Sunday; and artist Africa Zavala and actor José Ron on Battle of the Flowers Tuesday.

Parking and entry will be free again this year.
