Carnaval Gualeguaychu.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

We have an excellent news for you, while the Buenos Aires Carnival only takes place over a couple days, the Gualeguaychú Carnival is a festive season that runs for two months! Actually it even holds the record as the longest carnival in the world!

Gualeguaychú (map) is one of the touristic cities closest to the urban conglomerates in the provinces of Buenos Aires and Santa Fe and one of the most visited Argentine cities by international tourists.

Near Gualeguaychú is Pueblo Belgrano (map), a municipality that belongs to the city, which is well known for its hot springs. Gualeguaychú should not be confused with Gualeguay (map), another city also in Entre Ríos, located about 80 km (50 mi) west.

Gualeguaychú is 200 kilometers from Buenos Aires, located in the province of Entre Ríos.

The origins of Gualeguaychú Carnival date back almost forty years. The modern day version of this carnival began at the start of the 20th century. Whilst the town already celebrated carnival it was not in the same form or on such a grand scale as the one today. It was more spontaneous and composed of Murgas bands.

The Corsódromo (map) is the Argentinian version of the Sambadrome. It is a custom built parade stadium that is the heart and soul of carnival and central to all the carnival activities. The Corsodromo is where all the carnival action takes place and it is located in the Parque de La Estación.

The price for tickets to the Corsodromo to watch the parades depends obviously on the how good your seat is. Tickets can range from $290 to $380 Argentinean Peso’s for general admission and around $60 Argentinean pesos for minors.

Tickets for the parades can be purchased on line before carnival from the official website. Or alternatively you can purchase tickets on site at the Corsodromo’s ticket office. Above is a map of seating options. The closer to the front and center you are, the more expensive tickets are.
