Although it boasts an excellent transport infrastructure, Santa Cruz de Tenerife’s compact enough to explore by walking. Indeed, you’ll be able to take in the bulk of what the capital offers to the visitor by enjoying a leisurely stroll (paseo) around it. Its port, in common with neighbour Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, gives the city a certain buzz. And, unlike the southern resorts of Las Américas and Los Cristianos, you won’t find going local here quite such a struggle. For SCDT’s a working city populated, in the main, by native Canarians. Whilst the restaurants offer international menus, the closest you’re come to a cooked breakfast is a sandwich mixto (ham and cheese toastie).
