About Carnival

Launched in 1983 by Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, Cayman Carnival Batabano is the national carnival of the Cayman Island, held annually in May at the start of turtle nesting season.

The name “Batabano” is a salute to Cayman’s turtling heritage – the word ‘Batabano’ is a Caymanian term meaning the tracks left in the sand by sea turtles as they crawl ashore to nest. Finding these tracks was – and still is – a reason tocelebrate, thus Cayman Carnival Batabano!
