this is how our bonfire night should be, having your own bonnis with neighbours and friends instead of organised things.Out in tenerife next friday cant wait.
Looks like a fun place to be tonight
Lyn W - Thanks for the info. I'll be back later to catch the event unfold if I can stay awake!!
... is that event the reason for the extra porta-loos (23.06.17)?! :))
23rd June - San Juan Bautista midsummer bonfires will be lit on beaches all over the island tonight. The fire on Playa de Los Cristianos is due to be lit at 21:30 tonight followed by partying till dawn. How I wish that I were there now.
Mike-- Well said, it was getting like a Trip advisor web site.
This isn't a forum on the good and bad points of visiting Tenerife. I think the comments section is for passing comments on the view from each individual camera only.
Well said jimDI totally agree with you :)
My wife and I have been visiting Los Cristianos once or twice per year for the last 25 years. We have walked from town to the Arona Gran area on many late evenings (mornings!) and have never once felt threatened nor experienced any crime.You may occasionally see homeless people but you'll experience that in almost any town or city in the world. I used to feel more put upon by predatory timeshare touts (thankfully no longer there) than I ever have from walking past a homeless person.Los Cristianos isn't perfect - most places aren't - but I don't recognise our experience from the negative comments on here.If you want a sanitised holiday "experience", you may be better advised to go on an all-inclusive to Benidorm and never leave the hotel. We don't mind living in the real world and Los Cristianos suits us just fine.
Its not negativity about los cristianos, its about the island has a whole it has changed for the worse like in the ninetys it wants sorting out. Just trying to make a point if people are ok with pick pockets, druggies and the likes thats fine but suerly there are people out there who are fed up with the situation. You pay good money for your holiday and i think it needs to be enjoyed instead of having to watch your wallet and keep away from certain areas.
Soon, very very soon will this be our vue from the balcony for a week ;-)
Why all this negativity about Los Cristianos. I go twice a year for nearly 20 years and nothing has really changed, the same coloured gentlemen and oriental ladies selling cheap goods. This is their way of life, and of course they have homeless but doesn't every country have them. You have to accept that,if you don't like it then don't go there.
Go to los cristanos for a holiday,buy necklaces from people who are homeless but living in someone elses property without permission.Return home to find homeless people living in your house ,would you say hello and buy necklaces?
So if you loose your job its ok to start to be a thief and take over someones property. Not my kind of place to be in sorry.
