Tenerife Carnival 2019

The second best carnival in the world!

Tenerife Carnival 2019 : when you don’t want to travel as far as Rio De Janeiro but you do want to have a similar experience when it comes to a world class carnival, then you have to discover the 2019 Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

This year the carnival is dedicated to the ocean and it will turn the capital of Tenerife into an underwater scenery. The election of the queen of the carnival is planned on the 27th of February 2019.

The main parade that both tourists and residents alike are looking forward to is planned on Tuesday the 5th of March 2019 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. All the beautifully decorated floats together with every carnival association will parade around the capital city in a wonderfully coordinated parade that you must not miss.

It is hard to reach the capital during the carnival by (rental) car so most people take special busses to go to the carnival so they don’t have to worry about finding a place to park.

While you are in Santa Cruz for the carnival, you can check out the beautiful Plaza de España and maybe try out one of the delicious restaurants there like the Restaurant Compostelana Plaza de España.

If you don’t want to travel all the way to the capital for the carnival parade, you can also enjoy the carnival in Los Cristianos on Sunday the 31st of March 2019.

This carnival is smaller, but more intimate and this year the parade has got a jungle theme.

After all the excitement of this parade, you can go out and grab a cold drink or get a bite to eat before you head back to your hotel or apartment.
