If you are from the US, Caribbean or Latin America, you’ve probably heard of Trinidad Carnival. You may even want to partake in the festival but are not sure which band would be the best fit. Each band has its own color scheme and theme, and style. Some bands, like the one called Bikini Mas, feature revealing sexy costumes, while others are more conservative. Bands are divided into sections and each section has its own costume. You can view each costume on the band’s website. You also have to pay for the costume, so checking out the cost ahead of time is a good idea.

For some Carnival bands, you pay for the costume and simply march along with them. If you choose an all-inclusive band, however, your payment will not only cover the costume but also alcoholic and other beverages, food, and mobile washrooms. Spots for all-inclusive (as well as the popular mas bands) fill up quickly, so you need to make a reservation early on.

You can follow Exousiamas on Facebook.
