AllMusic Review by

The limited-edition Latin Carnival is a Columbia Record Club "Bonus Record" in a generic jacket. It seems to be a collection of greatest hits with a couple of tracks previously unreleased on LP. Elena Verdugo sings "Tico Tico"; Otto Bolivar's "Carnival in Uruguay" is from Olé; Juan Manual sings "Lisboa Antigua." "Cuban Mambo" is the standout track, with vocal by 3 Beaus and a Peep. Hermanas Boyd of the Boyd Triplets sings "La Paloma," Del Campo sings "Say 'Si Si'," and Aladdin and the Boyd Triplets sing a wonderful version of "Come to the Mardi Gras."
