Planning your next trip to La Gomera?
If you're thinking of a winter escape, why not come and visit the island while it's carnival season?
Although the crowds are not as large as the ones in the capital of Tenerife, the atmosphere is still great and that is this party's main attraction.
As usually, the most important celebrations in La Gomera are held in the capital of San Sebastian and in the town of Valle Gran Rey.
