Los Cristianos and San Blas and onwards to Bristol

Last, lazy day.

semi-overcast 26 °C

Speaking to the receptionist last night, she confirmed my fears about my last wish-list item, churros: "You won't get them around here, there are too many tourists, you need to go to one of the Spanish towns like Candelaria. The tourists here only like English food." How sad. I go to Spain and I struggle to find Spanish food.....

Checking out of the hotel we were offered storage for the luggage, and also a pre-bookable room to use for an hour, free of charge, to shower and get changed. We've had the use of communal rooms in the past (if there has been one available), but never been able to pre-book a room to ourselves for an hour like that. Definite brownie points to the hotel Cordial Golf Plaza.

As Candelaria would be such a rush for us to be back for the early afternoon, we decided to see if there was a mobile churros van in Los Cristianos (as suggested by the receptionist), but after a few minutes in the town it was already annoying me, so we headed for the coast instead. I am so not a tourist resort kind of person.

The coast at Granadillo

A very odd looking aircraft shaped house at Granadillo.

Heading back to San Blas (the next 'resort' along the coast from Golf del Sur), we took a long, leisurely lunch in a small café, enjoying some rather nice tapas (Spanish food does exist in Tenerife!), another iced coffee and they even made us a couple of bocadillos to take on the plane with us.

Despite a delay of an hour, the flight managed to make up some time with a good tail wind. Again we had three seats to ourselves, and the plane was nowhere near full. No drunk hen parties of strange men dressed as clowns on this flight. We were very grateful for having brought our own baguettes, as Ryanair had 'forgotten' to stock up on food in Bristol, and didn't have time to do so in Tenerife, so all they had on board was crisps, chocolate and cuppa soup.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed Tenerife, and would be quite happy to go back again some time.
