Santa Cruz Tourist Office

When I first came to La Palma, the tourist office was in temporary accommodation in the third floor of an office building, with absolutely nothing at street-level to indicate where it was. Basically, you had to ask a local to find it.

Obviously this left something to be desired, so they put up two signs: one at the south end of town pointing north, and one at the north end, pointing south.

That was seventeen years ago. Since then, the tourist office has moved twice. They are now in this rather attractive building in Santa Cruz, outside the port entrance. As you can see, it's in the middle of a dual carriageway, but there's a zebra crossing just out of the frame to the right. All the staff speak good English, and I've always found them very helpful.

Opening hours:
