Tenerife - Santa Cruz

Visitors: 149

Santa Cruz is shopping heaven. Dive right in and practice your haggling skills with a variety of wares, such as electronic goods, designer accessories, alcohol and handmade gifts. Head for the port area, with its many museums of anthropology, and archeology. And when all that is done, or maybe in between, pop into one of the plentiful bars and restaurants, with their international flavor. A city steeped in history, Santa Cruz has an atmosphere unlike any other.

The Island´s capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a bustling city with a true cosmopolitan feel. Situated on the coast, it has a truly unique Island character. It is easy to lose yourself in the many streets and pedetranised areas, whilst being distracted by the countless shops, and bargains to be had. It is also home to the Auditorio de Tenerife - a stunning building, which looks it best after dark when it's floodlights highlight its beauty.

Despite being the administrative center of the Canary Islands (a title it shares with Las Palmas in Gran Canaria), and the largest city on the Island, Santa Cruz is still tremendously laid back. there are countless beautiful parks, and children's’ areas dotted about the city, and driving here is not for the faint hearted!

February is Carnival time here, and Santa Cruz does not do things by halves. The colours, the music, the atmosphere - all go to add to a truly amazing experience for any visitor. People have likened it to the Copacabana of Rio de Janeiro.
