Fiesta del Son 2019 in Alcala, Tenerife
Fiesta del Son is a Cuban celebration held in Alcala, a town in the south of Tenerife.
The Spanish slogan for this fiesta is "Un Dia de Cuba en Alcala", which literally translates to a Cuban day in Alcala.
This celebration is held every year in Alcala and it marks the connection between the Canary Islands and Cuba, who are linked by their past.
At this party you will hear Cuban music, drink mojito prepared on the spot by different vendors and you will celebrate among locals, who also celebrate the day of Virgin de Candelaria on the day before the party, February 2nd.
