Hunt the Tourist Office In Garachico

It's not something I'd needed, but since I've walked the streets of the town (in the non-prostitute sense) so many times to almost know them like the back of my hand, you'd imagine that I might have stumbled across it before, but I had not.

And, if I hadn't, what hope does a lost tourist have? :)

Apparently, Garachico's tourist information point is currently hiding in the ’El Limonero’ crafts center in the cobbled street, Esteban de Ponte, parallel to the seafront. But don't worry too much about memorizing that piece of information.

Because, a permanent tourist information office is soon to be opened in Garachico. The installation - a kiosk in the port area, where there is a car park and an ample influx of tourists - is already built and is just awaiting the appointment of staff.

Garachico's new tourist office is due to be opened "before the summer", which will - hopefully - coincide nicely with the likelihood that the town will receive extra visitors this year for the third centenary of the fateful 1706 eruption in May.
