  • Janey, a good spot is Los Gigantes square usually starts about 7-30pm but be prepared for a wait. It is super watching all the little ones getting their presents from the Three Kings. Maybe a good idea is to book a table at Asturias and you can have a meal whilst you wait.

  • Janey I have only seen the Three Kings come into the village on the camels from Colonial Park Apartments usually with many followers.

  • The last few times the 3 kings have come in on horses or a flat bed trailer as I recall.  The camels caused some problem a few years back.

    Get into the square early or Green Corner is a great place to sit and wait and watch and have a few drinks, but no pinching my seat ;)

    We love being there for the 3 kings celebrations as nothing like it here in the UK.  Never tire of it.

    Obviously the wrong type of camels  :o - we always camels in Los Cristianos, and a huge parade to the live nativity at the Culture Centre then lots of fireworks.  Does LG have a nativity or just the Kings?

    we dont have a culture centre, nor the money, nor the amount of people that los chris has.
