Uruguay outside the box: a guide to its unconventional experiences
Owing to its distinct church and state separation, Montevideo’s carnaval has nothing to do with the day before Lent. Instead, expect three months of celebration beginning around January 23. The carnaval story unfolds in the 18th century, when multitudes of moneyed Europeans arrived in Montevideo and imported African slaves for manual labor.

Uruguay eventually abolished slavery, but Candombe prevailed and evolved to play a big part in carnaval.
