carnaval2 copia

The Carnival of Santa Cruz, Tenerife, is seen as the most known and popular internationally, right after the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro. For this reason the two cities also have become twin cities. A lot of people go out on the streets and tourism increases during this spectactle as much as in summer. In the year 1980 the Carnival in Tenerife was declared "Fiestas of National Tourist Interest of Spain" and in 2000 it became "Global Capital of Carnival." The next step would be to gain the title "World Heritage Site" which the festivals aspires at the moment. This title would bring the event international and permanent promotion.

The Carnival of Santa Cruz can be divided in two parts. On the one hand there is the offical part and on the other hand the street carnival. The offical part is composed of bands, musicians and groups of dressed up people. The inoffical part is formed of all kind of participants who go out on the streets, dressed up and dancing to the rhythms of the local musicians.

This year the official part begins on the 25th of January and end on the 26th of February. The Team of Hotel Rural Costa Salada wishes you a lot of fun enjoying the celebrations.
