Jan. 28, 2020, 2:52 p.m.

Maspalomas Carnival is an extraordinary opportunity to discover one of the most important events in the world. You might think that this is an exaggeration, but far from it! The municipality of San Bartolomé de Tirajana located in Gran Canaria holds spectacular festivities that attract thousands of visitors each year.
The reasons are many, but one of them stands above the rest. The climate enjoyed in the south of the island leaves everyone speechless. Can you imagine being at 22ºC during winter when most of European countries suffer a rough weather? Well, if there is one necessary thing Maspalomas, that would be be sunscreen!
Gran Canaria, known as the ‘miniature continent’ by its diversity of landscapes, is an island located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean just 100 kilometres off the northwestern African coast and a couple hours flight away from the European continent that enjoys mild weather conditions thanks to the Azores High and the trade winds.
Thus, with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, Maspalomas reveals itself as a top destination for those who are looking to escape from the cold whenever they want. Furthermore, if one of the best events of the world is added to the mix, we are undoubtedly in front of a safe bet.
