      I have booked flights to Gran Canaria in late January. We arrive at Las Palmas airport 17.50.
      Can any one advise the best way from airport to the "action" Old town, bars, restaurants, bars and beach?

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      Isla de Tenerife Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

    • Jewelry store

      by anthonyprocek Online Now Jun 3, 2011 at 2:23 PM

      I bought some lovely silver jewelry from a shop in the Oasis Boulevard shopping cenre opposite Lopesan Costa Meloneras hotel where I was staying. The stock looks very similar in style and price to Schaefer Kanarias. I think the shop was called Touch but I cannot find it in any search I do of the shopping centres. There was a very similar shop, though smaller, in the Varadero shopping centre. Does anyone else know the store I mean? Thanks.
