Dates for the diary
Puerto de la Cruz comes to life with the Virgen del Carmen fiesta around the 16th. These celebrations include a procession down to the town’s harbour, where a giant statue of the ‘Virgen’ is placed on a small fishing boat next to a figure of St Elmo – the Spanish and Portuguese patron saint of mariners – and taken on a trip around the bay. The Virgen del Carmen fiesta attracts thousands of people from all over the island who take part in the water fights and harbour swimming that make this fiesta one of the best of the year. Costa Adeje is only about an hour away from Puerto de la Cruz (by car), so why not hire a car and go and join the fun?
