Carnival of Tenerife 2020 Programme

Jan. 21, 2020, 11:40 a.m.

As we have recently seen, the Carnival of Tenerife is an unparallelled festivity in the world. Each February, the capital of Tenerife holds a famous celebration that attracts many visitors looking for spending a great time while enjoying an incredible weather in winter.

In fact, the island’s location in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean just a 100 km off the northwestern African coast and a couple hours flight away from the European continent makes it an ideal destination for everyone.

Not in vain, in Tenerife you can do anything you feel like any day of the year thanks to its climate, natural surroundings and tourist infrastructure designed for fun for all the family. But the island isn’t the typical beach destination, as it’s home to the Teide, the highest peak in Spain with 3,718 metres above sea level.

Is there a better plan than combining beach, mountain and party? Here you can enjoy amazing beaches and natural swimming pools where the sun is always shining, stunning hikes through lush forests and feel the essence of the carnival first hand on the streets of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

So, if you’re thinking about living the Tenerife Carnival 2020 to the fullest, you should stay at a lodging where you can relax yourself after partying all day… In case you were wondering, we have the answer: HD Parque Cristóbal Tenerife.

HD Hotels & Resorts offers its clients a 30% DISCOUNT with the first child for free for reservations made between 25 December, 2019 and 2 February, 2020.
