Caracol means “snail” in Spanish, which is seen as a symbol of protection from the austerity of life. The city of Makati adapted this idea for the revelry that aims to educate the people to protect and preserve nature. This is why participants are clad in shimmering flowers and plants, rainbow-hued sea creatures, insects, wild animals and even fairies.
