As ever, we won't even guess when Los Cristianos carnival will be held in 2018. We will update when any information becomes available from the authorities in Arona.

Los Cristianos Carnival 2018 takes place from 1st to 12th March 2018.

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.
