There are few parties with as much magic, colour and fantasy as Carnival. And there are few places as appropriate to celebrate it in as the Caribbean. A pleasant climate, the relaxed nature of its people, the melting pot of cultures which come together in its streets and beaches and the natural beauty of the surroundings offer the traveller a unique experience for this time of year. With Sirenis you can enjoy a different Carnival in each destination, with the charm of Punta Cana, the Riviera Maya or Cuba. Let's see what each of them have to offer.
Punta Cana and Carnival to the rhythm of bachata. Carnival in Punta Cana is magic in its purest form. The multicoloured party is celebrated in style on the main avenue of Punta Cana Village during the second weekend of March. Its parade is the heart of the event, in which participating groups move along the avenue to the rhythm of bachatas and meringues. The big heads are very typical, traditional figures of the Dominican Republic that take the form of demons and are better known as "lechones". Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to see the event is to buy a ticket and secure a place in the stands which are specially created for this great party. On the other hand, if you want to immerse yourself in the soul of the party and experience the true essence of the carnival for yourself, then you might want to mix in with the crowd on the street.
At Grand Sirenis Punta Cana Resort , we also offer everything for our visitors to experience the party with carnival shows and themes to share this joyful date.
Pure Mexican tradition: Carnival in Riviera Maya. The carnival held in the Riviera Maya holds over 50 years of history, with a party that combines the colour and fun of its people with an environment full of ancient history and natural beauty. Because of the spectacular nature of the Mayan ruins and cenotes surrounded by leafy orchards, the Carnival party makes its way through different parts of the Riviera with many events and parades. One of the most impressive is the Carnival of Puerto Morelos, held at sunset on the main strip facing the sea. Simply amazing! Or that of Isla Mujeres, also called Fiesta de la Carne, which is accompanied by popular dances and contemporary dances from the region and which takes place on Rueda Medina Avenue.
At the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort , we have everything prepared for lucky visitors to enjoy this great time of the year in style. Caribbean in its purest state.
Cuban experience: Carnival in Cayo Santa María. The keys are paradisiacal places in which to discover the authentic essence of the Caribbean first-hand. Crystal clear waters, white sands, corals full of colour and life, cheerful atmosphere and lovely people. And Cayo Santa María is the perfect destination to immerse yourself in the Carnival party in all its abundance, in addition to living the Caribbean dream.
Carnival events are held in different parts of Cayo Santa María with the various groups taking part and live music, making it possible to enjoy the whole party without leaving the same key. For those who want to travel, Villa Clara, inland of the island, is an important town which celebrates its own Carnival and in which it is possible to experience the party in an emblematic city full of colonial-style architectural beauty.
And, of course, for those who want to enjoy newly released facilities, the new Grand Sirenis Cayo Santa María adds to its 5 stars all the charm of the Caribbean, allowing you to enjoy Carnival as never before, to the sound of most authentic Cuba.
