Carnival, one word, many traditions; beyond dreamful landscapes and relaxing moments, the Caribbean islands also share one common culture: the celebration of carnival. Although carnival shares similar historical roots throughout the Caribbean, the difference often lies in the manifestation of the celebration. Discover how the island of Guadeloupe is linked to Trinidad and Tobago through the history of carnival and how this modern celebration acts as a bridge between the two.
