Where to spend Mardi Gras? Colonia or Montevideo?

We would like a real cultural experience. We have from February 8 to the 16. We will spend time in both cities. Just not sure where to spend the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday of Mardi Gras? All help appreciated! Thanks, grans98

1. Re: Where to spend Mardi Gras? Colonia or Montevideo?

There is no special program on mardi gras in Colonia. Something you can´t miss in Colonia is the parade, that is considered the beginning of the carnival, that usually takes place the last week in january, and usually 7 days later it is Montevideo. May be later in the year you can check on the programs for carnival parties, but not yet.
