It was loud; it was brash; it was colourful, it was crazy and it was even a bit wet. But most of all Carnival on Tenerife was a lot of fun and Tenerife Magazine was in the thick of the action
Carnival on Tenerife hit top gear at the weekend. Although the opening round of parties are over, some of the most popular carnival events are still to come.
With a theme of the music from the 70s and 80s La Orotava could be a hippy and new romantic haven during carnival.
One of the best carnivals in south Tenerife, Los Gigantes has a Latino theme this year.
Despite the carnival poster howler, the circus themed Los Cristianos carnival should be a lot of fun.
Not a lot of tourists seek out this carnaval, or many fiestas in the former capital city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna even though they hold some of the biggest parties there.
Not as big as Santa Cruz, but carnival in El Puerto still involves tens of thousands of people and rocking street parties.
Surely the best carnival poster on Tenerife and enough to warrant a visit the town of the mysterious pyramids for their celebrations.
The biggest, brashest and most bouncing celebrations are held in Tenerife’s capital city, Santa Cruz.
Pinolere is one of the biggest and most enchanting craft fairs on Tenerife and is located on the slopes of a hill so steep that just getting from the car to the pavement requires steely thighs and a supply of oxygen.
