Carnaval is one of the most crowded times in Rio de Janeiro, along with New Year's Eve, when thousands of tourists flock to the city to enjoy the festive atmosphere. Experiencing the Rio Carnaval is a popular bucket list item. I was fortunate to tick the Rio Carnaval box this year, and it certainly lived up to the hype.

Everyone has heard of the famous Rio Carnival in Brazil. But did you know that Spain’s island of Tenerife hosts a hugely colorful carnival which is considered the second biggest in the world? In fact, some residents of this volcanic archipelago in the Canary Islands even feel that their carnival is better than Brazil’s annual extravaganza. In 1987 it entered the Guinness World Record Book as the largest gathering of people in an outdoor plaza to attend a concert — with more than 200,000 people.
