Overpriced bars and eateries but that's the norm,for a lovely holiday square to chill out in! We only went for a drink in the midday,but didn't feel need to return what with so much more to offer in Puerto.

Lots of life in this square, busy place surrounded by shops, bars, cafes etc., however not particularly attractive and didn’t have the atmosphere we normally attribute to Spanish squares. There was a children’s playground which looked quite good and plenty of benches around the edges....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.
