Oruro Carnival

oruro carnival.jpg

For a carnival with a difference, head to Oruro in February for a religious festival that dates back more than 2,000 years. This small town springs to colourful life in the country’s best loved festival.

It is not only Brazil that celebrates Mardi Gras in style, before the start of Lent. Troupes come out on the streets in procession turned out in startlingly vivid costumes and intricate carved masks and head-dresses to perform the Diablada, or wild devil dance, or the Thinku, the warrior dance, during the four days of festivities.

Look out for wonderfully colourful costumes and dances such as La Morenada, commemorating the fate of African slaves brought to Bolivia by the Spaniards.
