February is the month when carnivals and celebrations begin and this carnival is one of the best known in Peru and worldwide. It is also tied to a Catholic tradition, but it lasts a week, much longer than all the abovementioned festivals.

Besides the parties in the streets, you can enjoy other traditions, like water and foam fights (kids love them!).
