Puerto de la Cruz will be particularly beautiful right now, thanks to the 3rd Puerto de la Cruz en flor Festival taking place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 19, 20 and 21 October. Organizers, the Centro de Iniciativas y Turismo, with collaboration from the Ayuntamiento, say that they hope to show visitors that the town is not just a coastal resort but a place where nature is one of its most identifying characteristics.
The festival is designed to show to best effect the botanic heritage and natural beauty of Puerto de la Cruz, and multi-lingual volunteers will be on hand to inform a guided route starting at Parque del Taoro. The main gardens of the town will be open with free entry during the festival, so the organizers hope the public will take full advantage to enjoy the Botánico, Risco Bello and Sitio Litre. There is much more information about the festival on the dedicated website www.puertodelacruzenflor.es
