To be honest I can't think of one bar in Los Cris that has one tariff (and I used a lot of bars).

Like I said, I hardly ever venture into the tourist areas  :D  I only go to Los Cristianos when I need something and then it's out and home as quickly as possible.  When I have stopped for a coffee it hasn't been expensive,  Crap sometimes, with more chicory than coffee, but not expensive... but then I also think they'd have a bloody nerve applying their tourist tariff to somebody who, even though clearly foreign, had gone in speaking to them in fluent Spanish!
If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know amazing.

You gotta watch those freebie liquors a lot of places serve the much cheaper sin alcohol versions !   That's when they don't bring the bottle to the table !!  :whistle:

Went to a restaurant in Adeje, not long ago, and the after meal freebies were a bottle of Red and a bottle of White something called Grappa. One tasted like Petrol the other Diesel. But it must have been 100% proof. What a real hangover should be. :03:

It's just over a year since Tenerife president Carlos Alonso launched the "big warm hug" campaign in the shock of the UK's Brexit vote in the referendum, and now he is in the UK, for the World Travel Market, and has used the opportunity to propose that the Canaries should be excluded from the effects of Brexit. The president says that he envisages maintaining current conditions between the UK and these islands "in accordance with the specific provisions of the EU's Outermost Regions Policy" which gives ultraperipheral status to those areas of the EU furthest away from the European continent.

The Canaries is one of the regions covered by the policy and, says Alonso, permits exceptions such as he is proposing in this case. Other exceptions are, for example, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the customs union or fiscal policies. The measure the president is calling for would maintain the four basic freedoms which allow free movement of people, services, capital and goods between the UK and the Canaries, and "would let us keep our economic and social relationships and friendships as strong as they always have been, very important for Tenerife in particular since the British market is the main one for us from a tourism point of view", said Alonso.

Whether there is any mileage in this from a negotiating or legal viewpoint is one thing, but it is reassuring once again to get the sense of value that the British community, residents and visitors, has for Tenerife.
