Faded, with garish make-up and a tarty dress, but this old girl can still put on a show.

The Yumbo Centre is one of the many 'centro commercial' that were built during the initial holiday boom of the 60s and 70s and was one of the grander: three sunken tiers of shopping surrounding a green plaza, connected with stairs and walkways and (very recently) lifts. It all sounds so wonderful, but when the boom turned to bust, this... More

The centre was built in the 70's and it's really showing it's age. The inner courtyard area houses music events and serves it's purpose with nice planting and palm trees but the outer ring of restaurants, shops and bars leaves little to be desired. Some of the fashion and perfume shops are fine in there own right but the majority... More

The Yumbo is basically a Gay Ghetto, with numerous low rent gay bars selling expensive alcohol. Over the years the place has got worse and worse, so much so, the main visitors are now German and English Gay Men, who are looking for the Dark Room bars these are the only bars which are busy. It's not a place for... More

OK, the perfume... More

We visited on a cloudy day so I can't comment on the night-life. An eclectic mix of shops. A bit of a maze. Worth a visit, if shopping. Cheap parking. A good choice of restaurants for lunch.

The Yumbo is a must to visit, with its vast array of shops (you need to be able to haggle) , supermarkets, restaurants and night life

Came here in early December during the day only. Almost every shop/restaurant was open. Most shops sell the same tourist items, so shop around first. Plenty of restaurants to chose from and all reasonably priced. Taxi rank outside if needed.

Very eclectic and something a bit different. Caters for all tastes and types. Always better after 10pm and lively cosmapitain atmosphere. Get a taxi home as unfortunately there are always thieves preying on late night revellers.

As long as you have a liberal approach to life you can't fail to have a good time. The drag shows are hilarious especially at Rickys cabaret bar. Must be good we went 2 years on the trot to Gran canaria and we've never done that anywhere. Go
