The New San Telmo Promenade in Puerto de la Cruz

The opening was a bit of PR. It’s no surprise. There have been a few similar cases around Tenerife in the last couple of weeks – theme parks announced; a visitor centre officially opened… and then closed after the press had departed; tunnels on the Santiago del Teide/Guia de Isora ring road to be opened at the end of the month despite mysterious cracks being found near one, and the Barranco del Infierno to open again in April after being closed for six years.

There are elections coming up and suddenly projects are being completed… even when they aren’t.

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.
