Shopping areas and shopping centres
There is a large number of Indian shops that offer the latest electronic and photographic equipment, along with oriental goods like stones, jewellery, porcelain, carpets and cloth.
In Santa Cruz de Tenerife, most of these shops are located in the following streets: Calle Villalba Hervás, Calle El Castillo, Calle Doctor Allart, Calle Bethencourt Alfonso and Calle San José and around Plaza de España and Plaza de la Candelaria. They usually open in the morning and afternoon.
The Indian shops of Puerto de la Cruz and Playa de las Americas offer a similar range to their counterparts in Santa Cruz, as they are often branches of the same chains, which have their main premises in the capital. Details about buying crafts or typical gastronomic produce are given in the "Craft and typical food shops"
Santa Cruz, La Laguna and other towns have many clothes shops. International and national fashion goods can be found in the boutiques of Calle del Castillo, Rambla de Pulido, or between Calle Jesús Nazareno and Calle Sabino Berhelot, in Santa Cruz. La Laguna has interesting shops in the shopping area of the old town centre.
In Puerto de la Cruz, shops are mainly concentrated in Plaza del Charco and the surrounding streets, Calle de San Felipe, Calle de la Hoya and Avda. Familia Betancourt y Molina. Local hand-rolled cigars and cigarettes have won international acclaim.
