Fiestas del Carmen 2015 in La Caleta de Adeje

Tonight from 11pm, there's dancing to Orquesta Maracaibo and the Arguayo Band in La Caleta, Adeje as the fiestas there reach their climax.

Tomorrow, Sunday, 9th August, is the big finale to their Fiestas del Carmen with the procession of the Virgen de Nuestra Señora del Carmen from the church to the dockside, starting at mid-day, and then at 1 pm, the maritime procession followed by "paella for all" and enlivening the music from Santi Aurelio Cano Jr. to  dance till you drop

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.
