Men's High Heels Marathon in Puerto de la Cruz



Probably the biggest and certainly the most fun event of carnival in Puerto de la Cruz takes place on Friday, 3rd March 2017: the Mascarita Ponte Tacón (Men's High Heels Marathon) in which blokes in drag navigate the cobbled streets of the town and added obstacles in high heels that must be at least 15cm high. We already saw a taster of this at last year's Summer Carnival in Puerto de la Cruz and here is coverage of last year's main carnival event.

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.
