La Laguna Noche en Blanco 2016
It’s now an established annual run-up-to-Christmas event that attracts people to La Laguna in their hundreds of thousands, and this year’s Noche en Blanco will take place on Saturday, 26 November.

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.
