Canaries genuinely overflowing!

THE Canary Islands remain the rock-solid market leader when it comes to Easter breaks – and the latest tourism figures are the best on record. Official figures show that nearly one million foreign tourists enjoyed a break here last month. A total of 967,362 people passed through the checkpoints in April. That’s an increase of 22.95% over the same period last year, which translates into 180,548 more tourists.

Canaries genuinely overflowing!

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.
