We walked from playa Honda to here and then to the beach at Arrecife, it's beautiful, it's peaceful and it's not spoilt by people, animals or rubbish. It feels cared for and loved and we were more than happy meandering along here at different times of the day and night.

We went to the cinema on the "Original version" day at the Atlantida. After the screening we headed towards the restaurants and bars and ended up sitting outside with a cool beer and noticed how relaxed we were. The charco is a wonderful place for a late night evening stroll or even a morning jog. Just don't forget to stop... More

This is one of the most scenic areas of Arrecife and close to the old centre. It is more sheltered than the seafront and whether the tide is in or out there is plenty to see - boats, birds, fishermen, as well as the world passing by. Many of the best restaurants in Arrecife are located around the Charco so... More

When you are in Arrecife, you can't miss it. Nice to stroll/cycle around and have a drink in one of the many cafe's.
