Life in Puerto de la Cruz

Puerto de la CruzI am currently living in the village of Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife. Part of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic, this fascinating village is situated on the north-west side of the island.

Fiesta in Puerto de La Cruz, Tenerife!

I love Puerto de La Cruz…the landscape, the beaches, the history, the culture, the people, the festivals…and of course the nightlife!
