The hometown of Shakira! If you like music, colours, heaps of flowers, dancing, coloured masks, rum, folklore and much more, then Baranquilla is the place to go for Carnival. Highlights include the 'battle of the flowers' with carts laden with kaleidescopic flower arrangements, parades with dancers wearing giant heads with long noses, and of course, the music of Colombia - the cumbia, paloteo, congo- and dancing to match. Colombians know how to party, and Baranquilla is the best of the best!
