Once February arrived, we could see the preparations being made for Carnaval. Lights were strung up along the malecon, and Carnaval banners were hung from the streetlight poles.
There were no statues this year, but masks were added to the light poles. At night, these were lit up, creating a festive atmosphere.
The baños were put up at Olas Altas, and were indiviually painted.
At Olas Altas, the Carnaval welcome gates were put up and the bandstands and the beer tents were erected.
