A formally laid out city park

We walked around Parque Taoro wherein is the English Church (Iglesias Anglicana) and a memorial garden to the air disaster of 1980. The park is laid out with walks and trees but... read more

We walked around Parque Taoro wherein is the English Church (Iglesias Anglicana) and a memorial garden to the air disaster of 1980. The park is laid out with walks and trees but there is no grass or under planting so there are large areas of bare red earth. At a couple of spots are what geologists call 'Aa'. These are... More

I love this park, it is large and there is the difference in altitude providing wonderful views. I like to sit in Risco Bello cafe and enjoy a glass of their lovely mango juice rather than have their lovely sweet cakes and coffee. And on top there is the All Saints Anglican Church, gorgeous building with wonderful stained glass windows.... More

You cannot help but enjoy this day out, everything was enjoyable and food inside is very cheaply priced for families to enjoy

Interesting gardens with excellent views around the area. Nice to see a different style of garden. You must be aware that the gardens are on a slope, especially if you have walking difficulties

This is a nice place for a wander if you are staying nearby. There's a large flat area with a nice cafe in the centre. The best areas are around the winding paths and steps on the hill leading up from Puerto. You'll see lots of complaints in reviews about how steep and difficult these are. You do need to... More

Strange park when entered from the top end rather than from the lower and more organised end! However that gave us the opportunity to be surprised and delighted as we ambled down towards the town centre. This is a park with on-going work, I feel, and it is well worth a visit as it has different ecological gardens within. Loved... More

A small open air restaurant with glorious views over the Puerto de la Cruz and to the sea. Attentive service and a much higher level of cuisine then you would expect from this a local authority establishment. Go dine in style while watching the sunset. Don't be put off by some quirky menu translations - our "toasted" fish fillet, in... More

This place was handy for my hotel. Being flat - unusual in Puerto de la Cruz - it is the place were all the local runners hang out....and I joined them. Lots of decent paths for running. Also an area for exercise, with parallel bars and chin up bars.
