Spring concerts, how to be a Time Lord and more stories

Mr & Mrs Canarian Lizard doing what comes naturally in the Spring.

It’s all About Timing on Tenerife
If you want to fit into the Canario way of life, you have to align your timings. In our case that means eating and generally having fun Canario style, planning things Northern European fashion.

The Old North of Tenerife
When people roll out the ‘north of Tenerife is full of old people’ chestnut it says a lot more about them and where they choose to hang out than it does about the reality of life in towns like Puerto de la Cruz.

Güímar Pyramids Ethnographic Park introduces new attraction, the Sustainable Garden
The Tenerife Cabildo has announced the opening of the latest attraction at the Güímar Pyramids Ethnographic Park, the Sustainable Garden, a 1.000 m² space which reproduces the environment of a Canarian water course through a barranco with endemic species – did you know that eels, the only freshwater fish here, used to live in barrancos? It is beautiful, and another reason to visit this lovely space just outside Güímar town.

Teleférico closure for maintenance dates
To assist anyone planning a visit, the Tenerife Cabildo has announced that the Teide Teleférico will be closed for maintenance works on 18-19 April, 9-12 May, and 26-27 May.

VIII Subida a El Tanque
Spanish report on last weekend's El Tanque Hillclimb, but the report includes some spectacular images of the cars and the breathtaking views.

Spring open-air concerts throughout Guía de Isora
Guía de Isora Ayuntamiento has announced a series of spring music concerts in the open air throughout the municipality. The four concerts, performed by the two municipal groups, Agrupación Musical Isorana and Virgen de la Luz, will be held on the four Sundays in April in the most populous towns in the borough, starting with Alcalá, followed by Playa San Juan, Guía casco and finally Chío.

The Passion draws huge numbers to Adeje again
THOUSANDS of spectators, including those from all over Europe and beyond, poured into Adeje on Good Friday to witness the borough’s 20th annual version of The Passion, along the Calle Grande. And they brought along their own passion for the spectacular event, which spanned at least two hours. More than 300 people participated in the staging of the last days and death of Jesus Christ. And Mayor Jose Miguel Rodríguez Fraga  congratulated all the amateur actors.
