  Puerto de la Cruz Street Scene
by steventilly

Puerto de la Cruz is Terenife's oldest resort and is about a million miles away from the big, brash developments of Playa de las Americas.
The streets and buildings still retain a lot of their colonial character, there being a lot of the traditional colonial buildings with their internal open courtyards and balconies. The bigger hotel developments are outside of this old-town area, many being up the hill on the road out to La Orotava, and within this old area (especially at night) you get a much more Spanish feel than in the big resorts of the south.
