It´s now 17 years since the first exhibition of vintage cars took place! Again this Sunday, and inspite of the raindrops, over 25
vehicles gathered at the entrance of the Tigaiga.
Organized with Club de Automóviles Antiguos de Tenerife, and after taking numerous photographs
the noise of engines and horns wandered through the most emblematic streets of Puerto de la Cruz causing the joy and admiration of the people. The roadmap indicated destination La Guancha, transporting our participants to the winery Viñatigo, a traditional family bodega which thanks to the incorporation of the most modern techniques today reaches the high profile that characterizes their wines.
And of course: we after tasting the famous wines we returned to the hotel pleased and very happy.
The Tigaiga is now closed for renovations: This ambitious project will provide completely refurbished guest rooms including re-modelled bathrooms with a new design. The color palette blends blues and greens, reflecting the surrounding ocean and accentuates the hotel’s botanical gardens and mountain views.
This year, Puerto de la Cruz has been awarded with two Blue Flags! The black sand beach Playa Jardín and the bay of San Telmo!
It is a distinction that is awarded by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
What exactly does it guarantee? These are beaches and bays where you are informed about the natural areas, where you will fnd trained lifeguards, first-rate water quality, places which are easily accessible and much more.
