Puerto de la Cruz decided to have a Summer Carnival for the first time in 2016, which conveniently coincided with the trip we'd already planned. Part of their reason for having this 'carnival lite' in summer was to bring it to more tourists - and maybe tempt them to come for carnival proper in February - and partly to have better weather for carnival. So, of course, the clouds began to gather and sat there over the town for the entire three days or so, being menacing.
