Cayman Island’s National Carnival, Batabano, is fast approaching! Secure your villa stay now to be apart of this tradition which takes place the first week of May.
The festival’s original name, Batabano, is a salute to Cayman’s turtling heritage – the word “Batabano” refers to the tracks left in the sand by sea turtles as they crawl onto the beach to nest. Finding these tracks was – and still is – a reason to celebrate!
More on Cayman Island’s Turtle Heritage:
Carnival itself is joyous, cultural celebration throughout the Caribbean – a kaleidoscope of music, dance and pageantry, rooted in the region’s diverse historical influences. Colorful costumes reflect the vibrant landscapes, heritage and culture, with the music the very rhythm of island life. Carnival in the Cayman Islands has a distinct flavor as the islands are home to a melting pot of over 100 nationalities – one country celebrating many cultures!
The energy of Cayman Carnival Batabano is electrifying, with thousands of locals and visitors flocking to the streets to enjoy the signature, spirited parade, a creative panoply of costumes, choreography and floats that becomes more elaborate each year.
