About this photo

This colourful festival takes place in Lima in Peru every year (the first fortnight in February). Throughout the festival, spectators can enjoy a range of dance performances by different dance schools as they parade through the streets, as well as colourful costumes and a chance to mingle with locals.

You can get a taste of Lima and more on our Peru Express trip. The astounding Macchu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas are just some of the highlights, which can be fully customised to your wishes
