Find this merry, popular bar near Plaza del Charco of the Puerto de la Cruz town center in Calle Vieja. Casa Verde is always full to the brim in winter because of its Spanish Mediterranean style live music which rocks. So is the Molly Malone by Puerto's harbor. This Irish pub with live music also seems to take a break at the end of March.

It all started by with the Fiesta de la Cruz of Los Realejos First, it was only a church event. It happened in the first decade of the 16th century. Then, the archbishop Diego de los Moros of San Cristobal de la Laguna made it mandatory for Realejos to worship la Cruz the crucifix. It had to be on every second of May by street processions. Much entertainment including fireworks in honor of the cross followed fast.
The Puerto Cruz casino slogan in the olden days was 'Let's dance the night away'.
It happened precisely at the Taoro Congress Center which was right beside the Casino of Taoro Park.
The last classical Christmas concert at this former Taoro Congress place was announced by loudspeakers of a town hall car in 2008.
Tenerife Cinema movie fun about the birth and evolution of the island is offered by free entertaining film shows of the Portillo visitors center.

There are many public places for folk entertainment in the Tenerife mountains or by gorges. I joined at a barbecue of a hiking club at Parque Ramon Caminero. That's near the Caldera picnic park.
It is also only about 3 minutes from the oldest best Tenerife trout restaurant. More than once, I went to la Caldera Agua Mansa 30 minutes from la Oroatava where a friend had her birthday parties three years in a row. Both parks have toilets and are about 10 minutes by car apart.
Another popular barbecue spot for outdoor entertainment is the Parque Barranco Ruiz which translates into Ravine of Ruiz Park .
Basically, each and everybody can arrange for entertainment such as a big birthday party in any of those aereas de recreaciónes de Tenerife or Tenderete, as the locals say. The Tenerife Cabilde plans to put an entrance price on them. These rare spots in nature which make us happy are worth it.
All sorts of Tenerife organized outings provide professional entertainment which starts inside the tour coaches. There, animators talk to tourists in a most entertaining fashion to make them enjoy the excursions even more.
Tenderete musicians also provide much fun with their street concerts. Tenderete is Canary Island folk music with the band Los Sabandeños being the best.
Tennis club Los Realejos La Romantica, for example, used to organize a Saturday grill with live jazz for members and visitors.
Times have changed and entertainment is sometimes feeling the brunt.

What is Reggae you say? With that question you'll get a lot of answers. Most people will say, it's Jamaican music and it has a lot of famous performers playing reggae music and performing at Jamaica's annual reggae festivals, but it is also an exciting blend of styles and genres.
Happy are all those who have their own holiday home in Tenerife to be able to enjoy the island's entertainment by extended holidays more often.
