“Interest in Spain hotels has increased dramatically throughout the month of February as the carnival season approaches. Spain is always a popular destination, but the carnivals attract a large world-wide audience—they are a pure good time,” Stillekens says.

Barcelona hotels, Madrid hotels, Sevilla hotels, and other hotels in Spain’s carnival cities attract quite a bit of attention during carnival season throughout the months of February through April. Spain is well known throughout the world for its many festive carnivals that attract those in search of a good time from around the world.

On the event horizon over the next few months are a myriad of carnivals including the Carnival in Santiago de Compostela between February 28th and March 1st, the Carnival at Vilanova i La Geltrú between February 23rd and March 1st, the Maspalomas Carnival between February 22nd and March 4th, the Jerez Flamenco Festival between February 23rd and March 10th, and the Carnival in Sitges, often referred to as Spain’s wildest party spanning between February 23rd and March 1st.

The Tenerife carnival has made a name in the national news in recent days after almost being cancelled because of a noise complaint. The carnival located on Canary Island is a Latin-style good time, second only in extravagancy to Rio de Janeiro itself. Though the complaint was considered, the party continued on. “These carnivals aren’t for the meek and mild. They are all about fun, extremism, and having a wild time,” Stillekens says.

Stillekens says that non carnival goers planning a quiet and relaxing trip to Spain should consider the proximity of the Spain hotels they are contemplating in relation to any carnivals during the season.
