The Santa Cruz Carnival is famous all over the world. Its spectacular costumes, the parade, the music and the explosion of joy it generates among the local population make it an event that is eagerly awaited year after year. It is the main attraction for the tourists who visit the island in February and March, when the celebrations take place.
Another favourite with visitors is the Adán Martín Auditorium, which offers an extensive programme of plays, musical events and other cultural activities throughout the year. The auditorium, located only 10 minutes' walk from our hotel in Tenerife, is a magnificent leisure option and is complemented by venues such as the fairs precinct, the city's museums, the salt water pools in the César Manrique Maritime Park, the spectacular flora in the Palmetum Tenerife botanical gardens, and the beaches (Las Teresitas beach is a must), while the guachinches are ideal for trying local cuisine at very reasonable prices.
