The 2016 carnaval in Tenerife

Not many people know that in February each year it takes place the annual Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the capital of the island.

This is probably the second largest carnaval after the one in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, and it takes place almost at the same time each year. The island choose it’s queen for one year and she is crowned in front of the people dancing in the streets.

It is such a lovely time and I was present once 4 years ago and I hope I will be able to go again.
