The mayor of Santa Cruz, José Manuel Bermudez has been a long time supporter of Tenerife holiday makers visiting the capital, and it seems his dreams are coming true. During the first period of 2012, visitors on holiday in Tenerife, whether via excursions, over night stops or cruise ship visits, spent over 48 million euros in the island's capital. This is an increase of 4.02% on last years figures during the same period.
People staying for one night or more in the city are also increasing, with a figure of 11.4% showing - again, versus the same period last year.
This just goes to show that the north of Tenerife is well worth visiting when you're here on holiday in Tenerife!
In a first for Tenerife, a new complex was announced today which will contain the very first shooting range on the Island. Being built in Taucho, just outside of Adeje, the range will be approved by the federation for Olympic level practice, and will have several ranges to choose from, as well as a large conference room, a cafeteria and the very real possibility that classes will be taught for people to learn to shoot.
Over 2000 people living in Tenerife have a license to allow them to use a gun, but until now there has been nowhere for them to practice and hone their skills.
Expected to be completed in late November, the range proves to be a big draw with both Tenerife holiday makers, as well as residents on the Island.
