I will be in Sosua Friday and Saturday and will probably head out to Santiago on Sunday, anyone plan on going? Could use a buddy or 2!

Hi there....I will be in Sosua with family and will also make our way to either Santiago or La Vega on the 26th. It is a crazy time that is not to be missed. Have heard the is a carnival also in P Plata, but is not on the scale of the other 2. Would be fun to get a group out together, but need to get back later that day.

Regards, Alex

It is on all sundays in February and the final grand one will be on 26. As another poster suggested leave before dark and not to wait for the concerts in the night. I live two streets away from the carnival street and saw people go crazy as they get drunk.

Hey I'll be going to the carnaval for the first time this sunday.

all I keep hearing is to be prepared to arrive home sore.
apparently the 'diablos' or w/e like to hit girls and I hear I will be black and blue.
but I think the alcohol and experience is much needed so I'm going with a group/tour.
