    Nice little write up about our town but please note that Four Corners (4 Esquinas) is not the tourist information office, it’s a hotel and restaurant. The tourist information office is opposite 4 Esquinas. Thanks!

    • I have eaten in the restaurant Val, and very good it is too. I did wonder about the Tourist Office but as the article (as per the link at the bottom) was from the official Tenerife tourist site (WebTenerife) I assumed they knew better than me. 🙂
