Costumes and sex. Besides the music, Carnival is all about the costumes and to say that costumes are extravagant is an understatement. Like most parties, you can´t just show up empty-handed- The most important advice is to plan early. For Carnival in Trinidad, book hotel and flights as early as the previous July. Tourists can join in private parties.

Casual sex with strangers is part of the game in a part of the world with the highest HIV and AIDS rates in the world. For good reason survival kits include condoms. As the organisers say: Use them!
