Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz
for everything

Tenerife shopping Puerto Cruz often has a very special flair when done in restored Canary houses with atriums, marble fountains, and wooden indoor balconies.  Then, there's an abundance of tiny shops with great variety. They aren't only in its pedestrian hub on palm lined streets and on ocean promenades but also near the harbor and  by town squares. Wares from South America where cotton is seen as cool abound but there are also all the international chain shops.

Mercadona at Martianez my all time favorite

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. Unfortunately, only Mercadona at the Martianez Mall is left in central Puerto Cruz.
