Coming from a senior community in Florida where the national bird is "The early bird" and people dine at 5pm, Plaza Charco is a lively vacation spot that comes alive at dark. You can relax with a beer, a pastry, and a soccer match or enjoy a full meal at 9 or 10pm. Stores and vendors are there to sell... More

Nice relaxed place to watch the world go by and enjoy a cocktail or two. Good for an after-dinner stroll from the hotel.

In the older part of Puerto de la Cruz. A good place for cheap food and drink, where you can watch the world go by.
