This is the heart of Puerto de la Cruz. Usually buzzing with people, locals and tourists. However the very central cafe no seems to have ripped the heart out of the square by no longer offering any live entertainment or music. Such a shame that...More

Always busy and atmospheric. Feels like the centre of life in Puerto de la cruz. Playground, bar, benches, everything needed for a family day or evening.

After a seashore walk you can go to rest into the garden of Plaza Del Charco, or go into one of the pubs around it. People is peaceful and there are no dangers, untill midnight. After I don't know because I went to bed.

Not far from the famous fisher woman statue with good restaurants and shopping. Clean, neat and tidy with the restaurants putting up and taking down their movable parasols to protect their clients. All in all a happy place.

A busy central hub, which connects the harbour with more places to eat and shop, and connects old and new architecture.

Lovely busy square with lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Very lovely trees and flowers and a kids playground. The restaurants are fairly priced and it's nice to sit with a coffee or a beer and watch the world go by.

Tacky and dirty. Neon emblazoned cafes, restaurants and bars blaring out the same tired music on filthy pavements. Couldn't get out of there fast enough. So disappointing.

This is the central gathering place of the town; a large plaza flanked on all sides by cafes and restaurants with a central area providing abundant shade from the large Indian Laurel trees. A good place to meet friends and to hang out in
