Mojitos are a popular drink during Carnival: sugar, lemon juice, rum and mint. This bar is famous for them all year round, so during Carnival they prepare them in batches.

And a quick reminder – the 60s wedding takes place in Los Sauces this afternoon at 6pm, followed by a public dance. Allow plenty of time to park.

There’s a dance in Los Llanos from 3pm and it’s Costume night in Santa Cruz from 10 pm
