Ice Cream with a Difference in Puerto de la Cruz

Next to the tray of cakes is a cabinet full of the sweetest looking ice creams. Colourful ice cream balls sit on contrasting ice creams in semi-circular glasses. They're decorated with latticed chocolate, sauce and goodies like lemon chocolate wedges.

Each looks exquisitely delicious and choosing one is a nightmare. In the end we jump in and order mango and yoghurt, lemon and biscuit, and stracciatella and cherry.

They taste as wonderful as they look.



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.
