Shopping in Tenerife
When you are staying in one of our villas in Canaries on the island of Tenerife, make sure that you take advantage of the great shopping available and not just the usual gifts aimed at tourists that you will find in many of the larger centres. You can find authentic gifts in many places in Tenerife, superb food and wine, the latest fashions and electronic goods all at great prices.
If it is great fashion that you are looking for in Tenerife, then many of the larger towns such as Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje have all the best Spanish fashion chains and some of the more upmarket places have the best designer names too. However, for more unique designs and at even more affordable prices then head to where the locals go for the best fashions, which can be found in the old quarter in La Laguna. La Laguna is a great place to visit with historic architecture but at Icod de los Vinos there are stylish fashion boutiques with truly original items for sale and definitely the place to go for fashion while on holiday in Tenerife in villas in Canary islands.
Spain self-catering gives you the chance to shop in local markets, prepare local specialities yourself and also eat out in great local restaurants and to sample the regional cuisine. There are of course lots of supermarkets where you can get lots of great produce easily and cheaply but better still is to head to one of the local agricultural markets or farmers markets to buy the best vegetables, spices and fish. The best markets can be found in the North of the island but can be hard to get to, so the biggest can be found in la Laguna and Santa Cruz. The market in La Laguna which is next to the Plaza del Cristo is open every day until 3pm except on Sunday. Buying wine in Tenerife is also great value and great tasting, so make sure that you visit a vinoteca, which is a specialist wine shop, normally selling tapas too and find the best local wines to drink in your Spain holiday villa.
If you are buying gifts to take back with you, then try to find local handicrafts from one of the craft fairs. You can usually find these in the main Plazas in the larger towns most Sundays or visit workshops to buy the best creations from local artisans. Stay in one of our villas in Canaries and experience the great range of shopping available in Tenerife.
