Mother’s Day is a win-win deal!

The Zona Comercial Abierta Adeje Centro, or ZAC Adeje Centro, with the Adeje council’s department of economic development, has designed a series of activities linked to Spanish Mother’s Day, on May 7th.

Among the prizes on offer is a cruise for two.

During April and the start of May a ‘photo-call’ set-up will be installed in different locations around Adeje – Plaza César Manrique on April 28 th and Parque Piedra Redonda on May 5 th, and from 11am to 2pm people can record a message for their mothers and enter a draw. As well, any purchases made in participating stores will see you entered into the raffle for a cruise for two, as well as various other prizes.

The campaign is designed to galvanise local commerce by encourage shopping locally under the theme ‘Mi Madre Es La Mejor’ – (Best Mother Ever!). According to economic development councillor Manuel Luis Méndez Martín “shopping in Adeje has added value as it brings consumers and local businesses closer, it’s easier, quicker and of course anything that helps the local economy is a boost to job creation too”.

The ZAC Adeje Centro has on-going campaigns to promote local businesses while offering clients prizes and promotions. Méndez Martín explained, “ZAC Adeje Centro is working well. Last month we held a meeting with over 100 local businesses from the zone to outline details of the campaign. The ZCA is meeting all of its objectives and our hope is that the local commercial network understands that without their participation the campaign doesn’t make any sense”. The councillor also spoke of the importance of attracting clients to the zone and winning their loyalty, and not just Adeje residents but those from outside the borough too, to the benefit of all.

This initiative is part of an overall year-long plan to galvanise local businesses, designed by the department of local economic development, in partnership with the ZAC Adeje Centro.

Photos to Inspire You to Visit Los Cristianos

Los Cristianos is a popular tourist town in the south of the island of Tenerife. You can discover many different types of shops in the charming town centre, such as high street and designer shops, quaint local boutiques, and souvenir shops. There are also many good cafes and bars to take a break in when you need a rest.

The long promenade follows the beautiful golden sand beaches, and is a great place to enjoy a stroll before stopping for lunch in one of the many nearby restaurants. The sea is crystal clear, and great for swimming in, also for children. You can find many different water sports in this area too.

There is a lovely harbour from where you can take a ferry over to the beautiful island of La Gomera. It is also possible to join a fishing or a diving trip from here.

Very close to Los Cristianos is the fantastic water park Siam Park, the beautifully landscaped Parque Santiago mini golf course, and Monkey Park, where you can actually feed the monkeys, lemurs, and guinea pigs.

Even if you are not staying at Los Cristianos, a day trip or two here is definitely worth it 🙂
