Small plaza in the city of Puerto de la Cruz, nice to chill as you have lovely cafeterias, pastry shops, souvenir shops and much more, and a park for the little ones to enjoy.

Everything you could want including a taxi rank. One chain has three restaurants there. Try the second on the left from the harbour and ask for a Mount Teide, you will not be disappointed.

Had a beer sat outside a bar close to a busking saxophonist and a singer, who left at 1 p.m. A few shady alky types sitting around and few others ducking and diving and wheeling and dealing. In addition a few Africans were quietly trying to sell their wares. However they didn't seem to bother anyone.
