The botantics, landscape and climate make Puerto de la Cruz a special place to enjoy a coffee with exceptional views. The locals like to enjoy life and usually ask for a zaperoco coffee, made up of milk and condensed milk, lemon rind, cinnamon powder, and a splash of liqueur – or its non-alcoholic version the barraquito.
If you appreciate the simple pleasures of life, you cannot miss the Risco Bello, a garden of water lilies; The Lit Site, where you can have an English tea in a nineteenth-century orchid garden, or Taoro Park, with the best view of the sunset over the city.
In Puerto you will also find cafes rich in history, where you can often hear live music and enjoy the lively atmosphere and get great service at the same time. The mythical Café de Paris on Avenida de Colón; Ébano Café with its colonial style behind the Church Square; Bar Dinamico in the Plaza del Charco, where literary gatherings were celebrated in past centuries; or the most recent Ágora in La Placeta in the district of La Ranilla are all stand-out choices.
Ábaco is a luxurious 18th-century Canarian mansion, classified as a property of cultural interest, and occupying a privileged enclave of Puerto de la Cruz. The house maintains all its original outbuildings and is decorated with unique pieces based on flowers, fruits and vegetables. It has several lounges, a splendid garden and a delicious menu on offer.
Every Sunday during the winter season, you can enjoy a concert of classical music in one of its halls.
