I remember the place years ago when Pepino and his family owned it, we used to call it the shack, he played Canarian music all the time, he had fish in glass cabinets that you picked to have with a meal, he used to give his little kids a wash with the hosepipe! it was a great lively place then, I heard he got killed in a road accident. the new place is not a patch on the old one.

Just returned from two wonderful weeks and just have to recommend Viva Transfers. We were 4 adults plus suitcases and we had a luxurious minibus just us. So impressed we booked our return too. We hadn’t booked with Viva before so waited to see how good they were, but we will definitely book again with them . Easy online. Secure booking, and reminders too. :D

Not sure about the week you are referring to but just returned (22nd March) and it was very busy during our 2 weeks.  Bars and restaurants seemed full day and night and there was a good buzz about the place.  The Oasis in the daytime was pretty full too with people using the pool and the café/restaurant.  We went to La Bodeguita on numerous occasions and it was pretty full most nights.  One night we couldn't get in and waited and had to take a table inside.  This restaurant is getting too popular for my liking as can't get in so easy now!! We'll have to stop recommending it! Charlie's was also full each night and we saw them turning people away. We noticed Casa Pedro was very busy in the daytime also which is good as it used to be mainly in the evenings.  All in all, the "village" seemed to be picking up and good to see. 

With effect from 17th March 2018 VIAGRA will only be available from this farmacia under its chemical name.

Confucius Did Not Say.....

Man who wants pretty nurse must be patient.

Passionate kiss, like spider web, leads to undoing of fly.

Lady who goes camping with man must beware of evil intent.

Squirrel who runs up woman's leg will not find nuts.

Man who leaps off cliff jumps to conclusion.

Man who runs in front of car gets tired, but man who runs behind car gets exhausted.

Man who eats many prunes get good run for money.

War does not determine who is right; it determines who is left.

Man who fights with wife all day get no piece at night.

It takes many nails to build a crib, but only one screw to fill it.

Man who drives like hell is bound to get there.

Man who stands on toilet is high on pot.

Wise man does not keep sledge hammer and slow computer in same room.

Man who lives in glass house should change clothes in basement.

And, Confucius Really Did Not Say...

"A lion will not cheat on his wife, but a Tiger Wood!"

Years ago I got a booklet from the tourist office in Playa de la Arena entitled “ Trail guide, Santiago del Teide “ it’s in a ring binder. Published by the Santiago del Teide tourist office. Full details of lots of walks in the area with maps. Could still be available from or via email request from Done most of the walks now. Guia de Isora council also did one called “ walks in our hills “ probably still available from Since these were published walking has expanded in popularity especially in the a Erjos area. The tourist office at Playa de la Arena is usually well stocked with information about walking in the area. Most are do able using the 325 bus. Worth a visit to the tourist office to get kitted out with the walk info and a Titsa bus time table, get the Todo Tenerife Timetable (green ) not the more limited Tenerife Sur ( yellow ) one. Happy walking.
