Lovely busy square with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Very lovely trees and flowers and a kids playground. The restaurants are fairly priced and it's nice to sit with a coffee or a beer and watch the world go by.

This is the central gathering place of the town; a large plaza flanked on all sides by cafes and restaurants with a central area providing abundant shade from the large Indian Laurel trees. A good place to meet friends and to hang out in

Comfortable inexpensive and with a buzzy vibe this is the hub of Puerto de la Cruz. Good choice of bars and restaurants offering all types of food and drink. A great place any time of day or evening.

Stopped off here as part of our round island tour and were very pleasantly surprised. There were plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and cafés to enjoy and a great opportunity to people watch. The views were magnificent too as were the gardens.

My wife and I have been sitting in the Plaza Charco, having a beer or glass of wine and watching life go by, regularly since 1976! There is often something happening plus great in the evening with lots of atmosphere. Have a wander down.
