Puerto de la Cruz is one of the most popular resorts in the Canary Island of Tenerife. Shopping is good all over Tenerife but the resort of Puerto de la Cruz is a paradise to anyone who loves shopping. Because the island has what is known as ‘free port status’; there is no tax on perfume, alcohol, tobacco, electrical goods and cameras. One of the things that shoppers should be aware of is that the mass of cheap goods always invites unscrupulous people who offer goods at even lower prices, goods that are not what they are claimed to be. There are counterfeit goods in the resort so shoppers need to be on their guard.
There are plenty of great specialist shops in Puerto de la Cruz so if you are looking for perfume or electrical goods these are the best places to go. You will find that there are quite a few designer outlets in the area as well as a considerable number of independent fashion boutiques. If you are looking for some souvenirs to take home or some great hand crafted items and pottery then Puerto de la Cruz has a regular Saturday market. You will find everything that you can think of at the market but again, you need to be aware that there are counterfeit goods and if something looks to good to be true then it probably is. You will also find a number of supermarkets around the resort, most of whom stock some UK products.
