The market is a beautiful, colorful place to visit, and have any meal of the day at the different food stands they have. All kinds of food you can find plus of course everything’s fresh!

Santa Cruz is the other side of the island from Puerto de la Cruz, so you would need to go by car or by bus. At least an hour's travel but suggest you check a map and bus timetable (horario).
