The island's association of amateur astronomers will be holding a star party on Saturday, from 8pm, behind the trees in the plaza beside the tourist office in El Paso. There will be lots of amateur telescopes there, so you can get a good look at, say, Saturn or Jupiter, and they plan to be there until midnight. I gather they speak some English.

La Palma has amazing skies. This is a great opportunity, especially if you live in a big city where the street lights drown out the stars.
