Background About The Carnival Experience:

Carnival is not just a huge street party; its roots are much deeper than a huge street party.

Carnival started in Trinidad around 1785. As the French settlers began arriving to Trinidad, they held fancy balls where the wealthy plantation owners and planters would put on mask, beautiful dresses, make-up and wigs and dance in the streets to night fall. During these times, slaves were not allowed to participate in these elaborate parties, but the use of mask had a special meaning to the slaves; due to the use of masking for many rituals for the dead in the African culture. The slaves would host their own carnivals in their backyards, imitating their slave masters’ behavior at the masked balls.

For the African slaves, carnival became away to freely express themselves and their cultural traditions and after slavery was abolished, the freed Africans began to host their own carnivals.

Today, carnival is celebrated in many Caribbean islands including Jamaica. For many whom celebrate carnival, it is the way of life and it is an important tradition that will continue to live on for many years to come!

Things to know:

Jamaica Carnival is held in Kingston, Jamaica. Please book your round-trip flights to Kingston, Jamaica. Airport Code: Norman Manley International Airport (KIN).

IMPORTANT: If you select the All-Inclusive hotel package, please book your round-trip flights to Monetgo Bay (MBJ).

Carnival Travel Tips:

  • For the ladies, please wear flats and sandals, I would recommend leaving the stilettos and heels home. I promise your feet will be happy with you. I would also carry a light hand-held purse or fanny pack.

  • Do not wear your expensive jewelry even though it’s carnival, try not to be too flashy.

  • If you are traveling with a large group, you should purchase a local phone or SIM card. This way you will have a way to communicate with your travel partners. You can obtain a local phone or SIM card at the airport.

  • Drink plenty of water while you are dancing on the road.

  • Most important tip is to let loose and have fun, let the carnival spirit and the sound of the drums and music become one with you!
