7hrs in Santa Cruz Jan 2012

Where does one get the tram to Laguna, and how long is the trip.

Are there any areas of Santa Cruz or Laguna unsafe for tourists.

Is shopping good?

Thanks for any info

I would not like to say just how good the shopping is in Santa Cruz {I try to keep my wife away from the shops} but re either Santa Cruz or Laguna we have never felt worried about walking around be it during the day or after dark. Regarding the tram service the full journey is about 40 mins from end to end. Below is a zoomable link to the bus services from Santa Cruz and it is the red colour route you need to follow


Hope this helps

I,m assuming you will be coming from a cruise ship, if you are the cruise ship terminal is very central for everything in Santa Cruz ,the bus station is across the road like wise the tram , quite nearby is El Corte Ingles a lovely big department store, loads of bars/ restaurants there too, try to avoid the smaller shops if you intend buying anything . you will probably be wise to all the cons people try on cruiseship passengers knowing that they won,t be back tomorrow, like anywhere in the world be alert and don,t take anything for granted there are bad people everywhere, hope you enjoy and go back to Tenerife for a longer stay ,

Thank you very much guys, your info is very helpful. We are escaping from a cruise ship for a few hours, do speak Spanish, and will probably take a side trip to La Laguna
