Carnaval is celebrated in February or March (the week before Lent) and ends on Ash Wednesday. Ecuador has a unique version of Carnaval, nothing compared to other countries celebrations: children and teenagers love it!
They celebrate it throwing balloons filled with water, bags filled with flour, water weapons and anything (even eggs) that may make others look messy. Great fun!
