We’ve been living in Tenerife for almost two months now so it’s great that we have the joy of welcoming another house guest! A really good friend of mine from high school promised to come and visit us in Tenerife when we told her the news, and like the trooper she is, she’s followed through. This is a whistle-stop weekend visit with her flight arriving at 20 past midnight, early Saturday, and the outbound flight leaving Sunday at 7pm.
Straight from the airport, we went into Las Americas for some drinks. This was our first night going “out out” in Tenerife. All I was after was a good location and good cocktails. The first stop was Restaurante La Terrazza del Mare where we had a couple of drinks each. I expected Las Americas to be more expensive than the other places we’ve been to as we were out in tourist central. I was not disappointed!
We moved on to Papagayo Beach Club which was recommended as a good nightclub for music and dancing. That’s not quite what we wanted, but we wanted to be around people who were also out out. We had a great time there – plenty to drink, lots of seating and the dancefloor looked amazing. The music was really good and we made an obligatory drunken friend and headed back home.
We wondered into the village and decided to try one of the local cafes for breakfast (and
holiday cocktails). We were not disappointed – the big breakfast and omelettes were just what we needed. The cocktails – !!! The cocktails were potent. We ordered a Caprioska and a Tequila sunrise. We had to ask for a can of lemonade to make the drinks weaker! AND they are the cheapest cocktails I’ve had here. I don’t understand how alcoholism isn’t a bigger problem.
After our very boozey breakfast, we went to the beach to soak up some sun and swim in the sea. It was another perfect day for it. We had highs of 27°C and the water was beautiful and clear. We had a lovely day out, chatting and drinking at the beach, and catching up, and making new memories!
Be good or be good at it!
