Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz is like shopping in a shoppers' paradise with an abundance of variety.
However, scroll down when you only need a locksmith because you lost the door keys. This is your guide to help.
The hub with its often tree lined narrow streets or palm tree avenues is bursting with tiny shops.
Shop facades are often more than 200 years old. Accessories of South American origin
like Peru, Bolivia and Mexico are no rarity in the small boutiques in Puerto Cruz.
They are mainly for clothes but, include ornaments for the home, too.
Here in the photo, even a little shopping bag for a small girl isn't missing.
I would label this shop with "Cotton is Cool", in fact
Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz is for clothes of strong
vibrant colors, also.
Leather ware shops are mainly found on and off Avenida familia Molina y Bethencourt, in Calle Quintana and behind Iglesia Peña de Francia right up to Hospital Tamaragua around Plaza del Charco and on the San Telmo beach front.
One of Puerto Cruz typical examples for Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz with South American influence
Casa de Regalo (House of gifts).
It used to be at no.60 Calle Hoya but seems to have opened up again next door with a new name like Cactus clothes. This is a good place for Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz. This entire street has been revamped in 2013. Anyway, discover off-white quality clothes of natural fiber, which are often beautifully embroidered. South American gifts are also sold at very affordable prices, usually below €10. All people I know who shopped there are very pleased. I purchased an original Panama sun hat, for example, as well as some cheap, wooden jewelry.
This store is a must know, as you may get heath food supplements there cheaper than at Amazon and anywhere else in town. I buy my Vitamin B-complex there now as well as Vitamin D. Also mind San Bernhard ointments.
Find them at the shop that's also known as Danielle's shabby chic in Facebook. Danielle sells with the proper organic labels and certificates. I bought good quality clothes there. By the way, she is almost opposite the Cactus clothes shop. Also check out her other goods...
Imagine very elegant, organic and incredibly original hand bags, for example. And not made with cheap child labor. Otherwise interesting gifts made of cork.
All organic shops almost seem to be neighbors in that street.
The supermarket La Vida es Bio opens at 9a.m., Tel:922 38 20 29 and is at no.41 Calle La Hoya. It even stocks fresh produce as well as Vegan Ice creams.
The hub or pedestrian zone which is now wheelchair friendly and which starts at Plaza del Charco going East as far as La Paz is most pleasant. However, there is also the Ranilla in the other direction. Some traffic roads have interesting shops, such as Calle Zamora and Calle San Felipe.
Not to forget are many little boutiques in Calle Mequinez, a bicycle hire and the shop for some extraordinary Ranilla craftworks
Where? Calle San Felipe, 12. Local 2 Puerto de la Cruz Tel: 648 401 784
The maps as well as the toys look like they are of excellent quality.
There is an excellent artist supply store at the height of Calle Mazoroco. Also find a good second hand and /or antique furniture shop near Tienda Mundo de mapa.
Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz is truly heart warming because of
so many welcoming local owners of small shops. They are all the more
cordial, when you speak a little Spanish.
The photo shows Calle Ingram near the bus station, where shopping in such friendly circumstances makes you happy.
Fortunately, the tiny bar in Calle Ingram Corner C/Perez Zamora for delicious chicken take away is open again.
Tenerife shopping around Plaza del Charco the main town square in the hub has mixed opportunities for al budgets. Important is an all hours pharmacy. One of the shops of the Plaza for elegant shoes closed its business in 2018.
This is just one of the many locations where a feeling of culture enhances your Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz.

A friend gave me a watch made in Japan in August 2008, which was bought at Plaza Charco from street vendors for negotiating fun for €20. After 5 months it stopped working. The battery was not to blame.
Such shopping brings surprises. The other day, friends of mine veterinary students from Germany
who did a course at Loro Park were delighted with colorful magnetic jewelery sold by street vendors. They thought they would make such nice gifts to take overseas. Magnetic wrist bands and necklaces are said to have healing qualities. 4 for €20, a give away if I recollect well... Of course, they bargained for those prices, while I was with them at Plaza del Charco, at night.
The San Telmo beach shop front isn't only for buying excellent pastries and freshly baked bread of all types at Restaurant Cafeteria Rancho Grande which make out in the photo.
There are also fashion boutiques and much more.

Turn right into tiny C/Sargento Caceres a side street that links the shore with Calle Hoya and find Visanta Electronics (tel: + 34 922 38 41 89) for camera equipment by the street corner.
Shopping at Visanta was good in the past. Only brands with guaranties were sold. My family bought a Nikon lens and a Thomson TV remote control and other small camera accessories at Visanta.
Staff was very helpful and multilingual. Visanta stocked mainly the most modern merchandise. That's the only Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz Visanta review I may supply. You can look up more of their shops in their shopping homepage visanta.com at Tenerife online
where Visanta Playa Las Americas, Torviscas and Santa Cruz are listed, as well.
This means online as well as other
shops in Puerto de la Cruz. Pay special attention to parts, such as
batteries. This outlet is facing the town's small harbor or call it its
little gravel beach.
Otherwise, much seems to depend on different sales people of NTM.
Don't buy bargains at little Puerto Cruz shops without asking for guaranties to help with later problems.
Purchasing at small shops needn't be a negative experience. On occasion you find inferior brands on special. Just be careful...
Depicted in the photo below is Casa de Aduana which houses the town tourist information office together with an interesting souvenir shop. Both almost face the electronics shop NTM by the picturesque fishing harbor. The souvenirs are locally made and are of exceptional good taste and quality. Often, their productions are not repeated and they are sold as long as stocks last.
There, also discover small modern art sculptures of the Guanche fertility goddess Chaxiraxi or Tara which are great value for money. While stocks last... Indeed, Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz is a delight in the premises of the town's tourist office.

Discover Herreros with its excellent quality ware will be at your best service for Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz
above Plaza del Charco. When they don't have your size, they order it from the bigger branch in la Orotava.
A friend of mine bought a smart black suit made in Paris for himself at
the bigger La Orotava Herreros branch in Calle Carretera,13 on the way
to Casa de los Balcones. It cost him € 80 only including length
adjustment services within two days.
Mind that the two towns should be one, as far as I am concerned, as they have almost grown into each other.
Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz for clothing, bedding and similar items is very popular with locals for good quality and reasonable prices at Tiendas 99. There is one up the road from Plaza del Charco in Calle de Nieves Ravelo after crossing Calle Dr.Ingram.
You can't miss its sign displayed outside while walking about 100 meters uphill.
There, I bought a classic winter coat for about € 25 in 2003. I still have it. This shows that this area of Tenerife is well geared for winter clothes as well.
Shop for denims and trousers with good cuts at shop99. No brands like Levis, though.
The very interesting Puerto Cruz Rastro closes by 2.p.m.
The attached municipl market is not always the cheapest in town for fruit and vegetables, while little shops may have better offers.
In 2018, the shop Campo Verde is still one of such best bargain shops which beats the Mercadillo by more than 25 special offers. They are called ofertas, some of which are depicted in the photo. I had a beautiful sharp picture but one of the customers didn't take kindly to feature in it. The Campo Verde almost faces Hotel Diana Park by Hotel Magec in Calle Cupido at the end of the Titsa bus terminal of Puerto de la Cruz. There are a couple of others which beat the Mercadillo prices with some items that they sell. Those are by Playa Jardin.

The times of cigarettes for 49Cents, as in 2009 are history now in
2013. The cheapest cost about Euro 25 the carton and Marlborough sets
you back Euro 34 for a carton of 10 packets. Best shops for them are at
the San Telmo beach shop front and the Estanco opposite the Cinema in
C/ San Juan as well as other Estancos. Mind cigarettes are bound to go
up in price all the time.
Hand rolled cigars are said to be available in some of the little Indian cigarette shops in Puerto de la Cruz. The Mall Piramides Martianez has one such shop.
Claude who gave advice on retirement used to buy cigars at the Paraiso bar in Longuera Toscal for €0,30/piece. They certainly cost double now.
Original island liquors sold in Puerto Cruz besides its Tenerife wines are Ron de Miel a rum of 20% or more alcohol with honey and, Banana Liquor. They are cheaper on the island than in mainland Spain and, very often Northern Europe because of hardly no luxury tax. Look out in liquor and souvenir shops for the latest in Wine. That's banana wine which sells for about €10 the bottle.
The Saroj supermarket for Indian condiments unlikely to deliver to Puerto de la Cruz, unless much is ordered.
The long awaited first Tenerife German supermarket, which is extremely
popular on mainland Spain for quality and low prices opened its first
mega-shop in Puerto de la Cruz at Las Arenas opposite La Villa Al Campo of La Orotava by TF5 on 4th of February 2010 where you also find Arte Dental for best shopping of loaded implants.
Otherwise, the most open Lidl supermarket for Puerto de a Cruz is on its border in Los Realejos up the road from Hotel Maritim.
In fact, I do most of my Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz at Mercadona
because it's best for fresh fish and seafood. Everything is generally
well priced with a huge choice of products. Certain things like water
by 8 liter bottles or milk in bulk are cheaper at Alcampo to the best of
my knowledge, but then I don't like to buy at too many different shops
and Mercadona is excellent with many house brands.
One of smaller convenience shops by
Corte Ingles called Supercor Puerto Cruz has been moved from the former bus station to Plaza
del Charco. But there are other supermarkets with long shopping hours.
Perfumeria Ceylon on 'Plaza de Reyes Catolicos' and chapel San Telmo, a few steps from the Lago Lido Martianez is amazing. I would almost guaranty that you find what you need urgently in this large and helpful cosmetics outlet on the Colon and San Telmo beach front of Puerto de la Cruz.
