Mueca 2018 – art conquers the streets of Puerto de la Cruz

People rush through the streets. What’s happening? You hear laughter, applause, and amazements of fascination… Ah, an event! But not just any… Puerto de la Cruz celebrates the International Street Art Festival Mueca!

International Street Art Festival Mueca 2018

From May 10th to 13th, up to 60 artists will be performing in Puerto de la Cruz to transform the historic coastal city in the north of Tenerife into a large stage. Music, comedy, theatre, circus and many other disciplines await you throughout the city. You may have some questions now. How do I get to Mueca? Where are all the stages? And the programme? Let’s explain you everything!

What is Mueca… Mueca is you!

Mueca means grimace in English and is much more than an international event. Mueca is a movement and initiative of the entire city that is looking forward to welcoming all the international artists.

From jugglers, acrobats, comedians to avant-garde musicians, a great time awaits you! Also for families with children many shows and innovative events are offered. Mueca is for everybody!

Where is Mueca?

As mentioned before, the Mueca Festival will take place as every year in Puerto de la Cruz, in the beautiful coastal town in the north of Tenerife. The historic centre merges with modern projects such as Puerto Street Art, which transforms the city into a large open-air museum.

How to get to Puerto de la Cruz and Mueca?

You have several opportunities to get to the Festival Mueca:

By public transport: The buses (guaguas) of Titsa are ideal if you don’t stay in Puerto de la Cruz and do not want to drive a car. You can check their website to look for the appropriate lines to get to Puerto de la Cruz without complications.

By Taxi: Servitaxi can take you directly from your hotel or your accommodation to the city centre. It’s the most comfortable way, as you’ll be picked up right from where you are.

By car: Parking in the city centre won’t be easy. Therefore, it is advisable to search for a parking space nearby, then going to the centre on foot or by taxi. We recommend these three (for free): Centro Salud, Los Cachazos and La Paz. You can also park in a parking garage (fee). In that case we recommend you Centro Comercial Martiánez and Plaza de Europa.

As Mueca is also an eco-friendly festival, we recommend you to share a vehicle with your friends and acquaintances.

The stages and places to go at Mueca?

In the programme you can see at a glance where the main Mueca stages (El Peñón, Plaza Europa, Muelle and Nicko) and performances will be. There are also themed streets. We’ll explain you what this is all about:

Calle de la Palabra, the street of the word (Calle La Hoya): The storytellers are the main protagonists in this street.

Calle del Ingenio, the street of wit (Calle San Juan): Here the whole family will have a lot of fun; performances of clowns, magicians and music parades will take place.

Calle de la Música, the street of music (Paseo de San Telmo and Punta del Viento): Two stages, in San Telmo and Punta del Viento, will offer you the best of live music: ska, rock, pop, classical…

Calle del Movimiento, the street of movement (Calle Quintana and Plaza de la Iglesia): Movement and dance lovers will be particularly pleased here and enjoy unique contemporary dance acts.

Calle Creativa, the street of creativity (Calle Mequinez): Drawing, graffiti, music and of course different art exhibitions will enchant Calle Mequinez, one of the historical places of Puerto de la Cruz.

MásMueca, the city revolves around the festival

Mueca fever is on everyone’s mind and so additional activities will be organised by many of the city’s restaurants and bars. Salsa workshops, theatre, concerts of all kinds… When the night falls, Mueca becomes MásMueca! In addition, these bars, restaurants and shops offer special discounts throughout the festival. Support them! They play an important role in the realisation of Mueca.

The accomplices of Mueca

The Mueca Festival would not be possible without the help of the many sponsors and partners. From organisers to collaborators and producers, everyone’s effort makes it possible to continue bringing the best shows to this unique location.

Accommodation during Mueca, where can I stay?

If you prefer to stay in Puerto de la Cruz, no problem. Enjoy different discounts on travel and accommodation.

And if you have any questions about your stay, how to get around or what to visit, the tourist information offices will be happy to help you.

Last but not least, we wish you a lot of fun! See you in Puerto de la Cruz!

The Magic of Carnival

February fills Tenerife with colour and joy especially the capital Santa Cruz

Think of February and you always think of a cold, sombre month but that image has nothing to do with February in Tenerife, where, as well as enjoying spring temperatures, they celebrate one of the funniest parties in the world: Carnival. The colour, the music and, above all, the good atmosphere and safety, make this an unmissable event for anyone who loves having fun and I mean FUN.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival is a Festival of International Tourist Interest and is undoubtedly the most famous, with its galas and competitions between the different groups, the crowd-pulling dances every night and the Day Carnival, perfect to enjoy with the family. Although other municipalities on the Island also join in the party and celebrate their own smaller carnivals. The key to experiencing Carnival one hundred per cent is to get dressed up and let the reigning revelry and joy carry you away….

Design your Carnival plan

If you have not experienced the Carnival in Tenerife before, it is not unusual to get a bit confused when choosing the best dates to come to the island and enjoy this party to the full. Here are some important details that will help you to plan.

Although the official Carnival begins with the contests between the different groups (murgas, comparsas, rondallas), the real show begins with the Gala to elect the Carnival Queen. The event always falls on a Wednesday, and two days later, on Carnival Friday, the streets overflow with joy at the colourful, light-hearted Opening Cavalcade. You should be on the island for this.

From that same night the streets of downtown Santa Cruz are filled with music and costumes. Although this is not an official figure, maybe only one person in a thousand or ten thousand will be at those dances in normal dress. So if you want to go unnoticed among the crowd, get a disguise as soon as you can.

 

Cheerleaders with hairy legs

It is normal to meet groups of hairy men dressed as cheerleaders or someone wearing a spectacular costume inspired by a fantastic film. In fact, there are as many disguises as people taking to the streets to enjoy themselves, running into the hundreds of thousands and I’m not exaggerating. Did you know that Santa Cruz holds the Guinness Record for the number of people dancing under the stars? It happened in 1987 when Cuban salsa star Celia Cruz got a crowd of over 250,000 to shake their hips in the central plaza and surrounding areas (the figure remains unbeaten).

For almost two weeks of Carnival, in Santa Cruz a charming mix of good fun and craziness is unleashed – another thing that make this party unmistakable. This is in spite of the huge crowd that meets at the dances of by night and the Day Carnival, which by the way is ideal for the whole family.

 

El Coso, La Sardina and La Piñata

On Carnival Tuesday, the Grand Parade, El Coso, along Avenida Anaga represents the high point of the celebrations. The procession attracts hundreds of thousands of attendees including those taking part in the cavalcade and the public.

The night of Ash Wednesday is another date for your diary. The Burial of the Sardine is by far the most amusing funeral you will ever attend in your life. The finishing touch to the “sad” event is a massive dance in the streets of Santa Cruz until the wee hours of the morning.

And then the following weekend (called Piñata), the dances transform the city again with the Day Carnival and the night dances. But everything that begins must end and on Sunday the party says good bye until the following year … but only in the capital. Many other places on the island are about to start their own peculiar carnival, just as lively and surprising.

 

Join in and mingle with the crowds

It is really easy to join in the carnival atmosphere. It’s as simple as getting g yourself a costume that suits your taste. You can find disguises at affordable prices in specialty stores, which offer whatever you need to become a superhero, gladiator or sexy nurse, including wigs, ornaments and all kinds of extravagant makeup.

Just add one more ingredient: your desire to have fun. Fool around by exaggerating the character that you are playing in your fancy dress. The key is to laugh and make people laugh with your feather boa, your huge fake eyelashes and your glittering face. That’s all!
