Owner description: A beautiful plaza lined with restaurants and cafes.
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is the beating heart of the city actually.
And especially at night.
You can't, you must not miss it.
Yo have there restaurants, ice creams, bands playing music, shops and stores selling perfumes and alcohol of course but also anything else, everything and people all around making the Plaza Charco the place to be.
Do you remember your high school, or college, or simply your Saturday nights looking for the next party, the place to be, where is it happening, well it is Plaza de Charco.
The Butte Montmartre or the Saint Germain des Pres of Paris, The Dizengoff of Tel Aviv...

To make a long story short... you got no choice, be there or be out....

It's a place to pass when going to other places.
In the evenings there is painful, very loud music - different sounds from all the places round the Plaza Charco. Very disturbing if you want to relax with a drink or having dinner.
All the different music will become disturbing sounds and not music.

Very nice square with live music in the evening. Free internet excess in the bars and restaurants. Some bars and restaurants had quit high prices up to 2 € a small beer so you must be carefull where you sit. Cheapest was 1.25€ for a small beer

Plaza Charco is the central square in Puerto de la Cruz. It is pedestrian-only, and a block from the seaport. It is filled with restaurants, with tables all over the square. it is quite cheerful, and there was a traditional Spanish music group performing one evening when we were there. It is a great place to get a seat under the towering shade trees, have a cortado leche leche (don't miss this Tenerife coffee specialty!), and people watch. We also enjoyed a pretty decent paella there too.

Great place to sit in the shade, eat breakfast, drink espresso and watch the world go by - mostly locals and Spanish tourists!
