  • 23+ years ago one of the delights of our first festive season in Tenerife was the lack of commercialization. In the whole of Los Cristianos, there were two shops selling decorations, and the Spanish treats and “festive fayre” didn’t appear in the shops until well into December. It was nice to opt out of the commercialization at the time, although I have mixed feelings about it now.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
