On the spot: Live the Summer Carnival in Tenerife

Without a doubt, Tenerife is one of the happiest destinations in Spain, in which the parties shine with that special spirit that invites you to celebrate life. Get carried away by the magic of an island that vibrates on its own. And if you have in mind to visit all-inclusive hotels in Tenerife soon, then we recommend that you go in September. On September 14, 15 and 16, the Summer Carnival in Tenerife is celebrated in Puerto de la Cruz, a prelude to the Tenerife Winter Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, one of the most colorful events of the year.

The whole family is invited to live the experience of seeing how the locals of Tenerife celebrate the carnival during a warm time.

Did you know that… the gentilic or demonym used in Tenerife is Tinerfeño. From noon on Friday 14, until late Sunday 16, Tinerfeños and visitors can enjoy the wide range of activities. Parade, orchestras, concerts, shows… All this with a beautiful background starring the ocean as the Summer Carnival in Tenerife passes through Avenida Colón, Paseo San Telmo and Plaza de Europa, all located at the foot of the beach.

This event has been held for three years to promote the importance of spreading the culture of Tenerife throughout the year and its popularity is growing. The best representation of all things Tenerife is cited during a weekend full of culture, tradition and, above all, fun.

If you do not want to miss the Summer Carnival in Tenerife this September, we recommend you book Sunlight Bahia Principe San Felipe, conveniently located in Puerto de la Cruz.

One of the emblems of this party are the exhibitions of murgas, choirs of more than twenty people who, accompanied only by a rhythm of percussion, sing songs about the society, with a touch of humor. These songs usually part from the popular Canarian songs, and their interpretation is one of the most important moments of the carnivals.

Gastronomy is an important element of these celebrations, in which traditional food stalls are distributed, preserving the best flavor of the Canary Islands and that, of course, we recommend you try. Specialties such as potatoes with mojo, chickpeas, sancocho, fish churros, roasted potatoes and the delicious gofio and frangollo will leave an indelible trace on your palate. In addition, you can also try a wide selection of craft beer and local wines.

The last day is reserved for fanfare performances, bands that perform short and intense musical pieces. Culminating in a party that says goodbye to summer and leaves with a promise for more. If you want to experience the great winter party, the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2020 is scheduled to start on January 24, with activities and competitions that culminate on March 1, 2020.

Combine your well-deserved all-inclusive vacation at Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts in the Canary Islands with a formidable cultural experience.
