Favorite thing: February and early March is carnival time
Bring a costume or fancy-dress and join the crowd - everyone does- dancing in the town square until the early hours after the main processions.
If you drive into carnival areas (particularly Playa Blanca or Puerto del Carmen), or the capital in Arrecife, parking might be restricted, congested and long queues for taxis at the end of the processions.
The order for the carnivals is usually Arrecife, Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca, Costa Teguise. The dates change slightly every year, see below
Fondest memory: Arrecife:
MONDAY, 15th FEBRUARY 18:00h. Grand Carnival Parade. Starting at the Ciudad Deportiva and ending at the Recinto
