It is a festival. Carnaval. 4 days leading up to Ash Wed.

Comparsas dancers form groups and dress themselves in customs and dance through the main streets of the town.

The town paints each other and on the last day anyone in town throughout the late hours or the night/early morning will get painted or even raw eggs thrown on them. Tons of fun.

I actually think the OP was referring to Reaper & his skydive buds.....he is the one who mentioned a "big party" ...others interpreted it to mean Carnival.

We have been there a couple times during Carnival. The parade is fun. Getting painted and egged is also not my idea of fun, so we stayed away from the kids and the beach right in town. A couple of times some kids acted like they might throw paint my way, I just nodded my head no and smiled and they went on their way. With a little thought you should be safe 2mile. You could also stay 2 miles north for a couple days. laugh

Wuss! I've had my ass kicked every year since I got here and have enjoyed the hell out of it. What's really fun is running up and attacking a group of kids and then seeing what happens next.
