Our trip to Belize happened to coincide with Carnaval. All right, actually, we specifically booked it so we’d be in San Pedro on Fat Tuesday.

Carnaval in a Latin America? You’re probably thinking of music, dancing, and drag queens. Right you are. Tiny San Pedro can’t compete with the legendary debauchery of Rio, but what it lacks in scale, it makes up for… in volume of flying paint.

At first, it’s a cute activity for the kids. Then it gets serious, as you can see in this video:

Townspeople knows what’s coming, and anyone who values their paint job invests in plastic wrap.
