Be careful of the Rio de Merda. This is a river which floats down the streets during heavy rain. It's literally a brown river of excrement.
<p>The sand is dark in Los Cristianos because it's vulcanic. We have a different theory after we saw that Rio de Merda runs directly to the beach. You may not like the idea of your children playing in that sand any more...
