Costa Teguise Nightlife – Plaza Pueblo Marinero
The picturesque square and lively nightspot of Pueblo Marinero is a must visit for a great evening out. Pueblo Marinero has many excellent restaurants catering for all tastes and cultures from local fish dishes, Italian and various meat dishes from around the world. There is normally live entertainment on offer in the evenings here as you prepare to hit one of the many bars.

The market specialises in all types of arts and crafts, not the typical junk you may expect to find at some markets. Most of the Brits tend to head here in the evening so if you are hoping to escape them on your holiday it’s probably best to head elsewhere.
