I would go on Sunday, then there´s the great parade.
Saturday is the "Battle of flowers", Monday is the Orchestra festival and Tuesday is the "Burial of Joselito Carvajal".
The Parade is at the Via 40 (, for a few dollars you can buy a ticket for a shady place on a plastic-chair in the crowd, for a few dollars more you will get a ticket at a Terrace-place (northern part of Via 40, Start of the parade).
- It will be very loud, wet and "soapy" ;-)
- the roomprices will be astronomic high (or even booked up) in Barranquilla during the carnival. You could arrive with the morning-bus from Sta. Marta and go back in the evening (as an option). But it´s not easy to catch a taxi to the bus-station after the parade...
