Carnival on the Coast
Music and dancing, in the lively style of the Oaxacan coast.
The year starts off with a bang in Puerto Escondido. In February, Carnival is held on the days leading up to Ash Wednesday. It is a big party, with dancing and costumes, before the restrictions of Lent. Childs and a queen are crowned, and there are also colorful parades.
