For people looking for a Spanish holiday that not only beats the post-Christmas blues but also offers a carnival atmosphere, Alicante could be the right destination this winter.
Running from January 21st until February 10th the city plays host to a three-week carnival that promises to banish the memories of cold turkey and even colder British weather for many, including those with family holidays in Alicante.
According to holidayhypermarket.co.uk, the exciting carnival atmosphere provides a "perfect winter get-away".
The site also claims that the Association of British Travel Agents has said the celebrations will prove a popular choice for those looking to holiday in Spain this winter.
"Because of the huge numbers of people who have holiday homes in Spain, that is the top destination [this festive season]," ABTA said.
The festival includes the Funeral Wake and Burial of the Sardine ritual where revellers finish the celebrations by burying their masks and make-up as well as a ceremonial fish before resurrecting them the following year.
