Tenerife Fiestas - Fiestas in Tenerife

Fiesta, the Spanish word for party! The Spanish are very good at organising parties. In fact, the island of Tenerife is second only to Brazil when it comes to organising large festivals and carnivals. Each year there is the Santa Cruz carnival but this event warrants a complete article just to describe it and the atmosphere it creates.

Besides the annual carnival, Tenerife plays host to many fiestas. These occur in all the numerous towns and villages throughout the year but mainly during the spring/summer/autumn months.
