While in Caribbean countries they usually place artificial snow in malls and even have to create ice skating rinks so that its residents can enjoy, despite being indoors, the traditional white Christmas in the northern hemisphere, many of us in Europe would love to enjoy a little bit of that summer of theirs in the Christmas holidays.
Without leaving Madrid and in the coming days, it will not be so difficult to live in summer at least in part thanks to the Mercado de San Ildefonso, which according to what the summer season says during the month of December: the beach, heat, fun and authentic Caribbean paradise will take the gastronomical Street Market of Fuencarral street. It is an innovative entertainment plan that approaches the center of Madrid to the essence of Ron Barceló and its origins in Dominican Republic.
As far as decor is concerned, the columns and stairs of this space simulate the spectacular Caribbean beaches altogether with an impressive over four meters chains curtain that accompanies the central hall and various interactive displays with videos and pictures of crystal clear waters and white sand that help us to travel mentally from Malasaña to the paradisiacal beaches of Dominican Republic.
This will allow us to enjoy a unique leisure proposal for Christmas, a visual and sensory spectacle that will accompany the special gastronomical experience that characterizes the Mercado de San Ildefonso. Clearly it is not the same than being right on the beach, but if you accompany it with a couple of nice tropical cocktails, it will not be so difficult for you to get into situation. Sayonara, Santa!
