Malaga Carnival Poster 2019

The poster for this year’s Málaga Carnival

We’re just a few days away from the start of Carnival Season and most towns and cities on the Costa del Sol are gearing up for a week of fun and entertainment.

Although the Carnival is celebrated all over Andalucia – The Cadiz Carnival is probably the most famous – for the purpose of this article, we’re going to focus on the Málaga Carnival; only 25 minutes from our hotel and easily accessible, it’s a ‘must visit’ if you are planning a trip to the Costa del Sol in February.

We’re lucky enough to enjoy mild winters and this luxury allows the city of Málaga to live one of its most colourful, multicultural and spontaneous festivities of the year: The Carnival.

With hundreds of activities and events taking place during the week-long (sometimes a little longer) festivities, you’re guaranteed to have a ball! Continue Reading →
