Semana grande in Tenerife next week

Just a reminder that next week is Semana Grande – the “big week” of the
Santa Cruz carnaval. Many businesses will be operating partial hours,
and banks may be closing earlier than usual. Quite a few municipalities
have 4 March – Carnival Tuesday – as one of their two public fiesta days
: Arona, San Miguel, and Granadilla do, for example, though Adeje does
not – the full list of municipal, and regional public holidays is HERE.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
