Gran Canaria is well known as a great place for partying, so during the Carnival season, the island is full of music, energy, and color. Everyone is invited to take part in the festivities and enjoy the free spirit of Gran Canaria!
If you're into partying all night long, then you should definitely consider visiting the island during carnival season.
The main events usually take place in the capital - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Maspalomas, Mogan and Galdar. Several other towns in different municipalities also organize their own festivities: Ingenio, Aguimes, Telde, Teror, La Aldea.
