10 Things NOT to Do in the Canary Islands


The Canary Islands, see nine million tourists annually. Before you can enjoy the gorgeous oasis and beautiful mountains of this archipelago of islands, here are 10 things NOT to do during your trip.


1. Don’t Purchase Electronics
If you find yourself in dire need of a new electronic, the islands aren’t the best place to make a purchase. Some electronics shops sell bootleg products, or they try to pass off second-hand items as brand new.


2. Don’t Agree to a Timeshare
They have a selling tactic that includes a scratch-off ticket, and you will always be a winner! These offers will push you to redeem your prize at a local hotel. Then, you’ll be scammed into signing a dishonest timeshare contract with a hefty fee.


3. Don’t Ignore the Beach Signs
The red flag means no swimming. Even if the water looks calm. When the yellow and green flags are waving, it’s best to stick to the patrolled areas. Also, be cautious of jellyfish in the springtime. Avoid swimming and walking around with your shoes off.


4. Don’t Visit Cruz de Tejeda
If you’re looking for sweeping views of the mountains and beaches, skip out this area entirely. Since it’s just 5,000-feet above sea level, there isn’t much of a view. Instead, head out to Mirador del Barranco del Carmen, La Palma to see stunning views of the rugged coastline.


5. Don’t Get a Late Start to See El Teide
If seeing Tenerife’s legendary volcano, El Teide, is on your to-do list, make sure you head out early in the morning. To avoid the crowd, try to arrive by 9 a.m. the latest.


6. Don’t Confuse a Pickpocketer for Someone In Need
Gran Canaria is a relatively low-crime area, but a common tactic is for pickpocketers to pose as beggars. They will get really close to their victim and quickly reach into their pockets to snatch their money and possessions.


7. Don’t Fall for the Puerto de la Cruz Scam
You’ll notice a lot of the locals walking around with pet monkeys, snakes, and parrots. They’ll sometimes place the animals on a child’s shoulders and allow the parents’ to take a photo. After the picture is taken, they’ll demand an insane amount of money.


8. Don’t Go to the Tenerife Beaches
If you want golden sand to wiggle your toes in, the beach in Tenerife shouldn’t be on your list. Since it’s the site of a volcano, most of the beaches are full of black sand that will scorch your feet! For a real sandy beach, head to Los Cristianos instead.


9. Don’t Take the Train Ride In Corralejo
They promise to take you on a tour. After boarding, you’ll realize the tour simply consists of a quick trip around Corralejo’s back streets, and travelers have complained that the tour guides aren’t very knowledgeable.


10. Don’t Accept “Free” Food
Vendors selling slices of pineapple will allow you to “try” a slice – only to demand you pay them up to eight Euro per piece! Just remember, nothing is free. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is!


Where do you want to know what not to do in next?

Our dream vacation. What a great place. Enjoy, relax and no stress

The Cape Verde Islands

Green mountains, barren rocks and wide beaches: This documentary presents life and survival on the idiosyncratic Cape Verde Islands in the middle of the Atlantic, where the islanders confront difficulties with a smile.
Clad in just a protective suit and a mask, José Antonio catches lobsters with his bare hands in the up to 10-meter-deep waters off the beach and surf island of Sal, then sells them to restaurants in Santa Maria.
From the harbour on São Vicente, ferries leave bound for the neighbouring green island of Santo Antão. They transport vegetables, goats and normal passengers - well, death defying would be the better description. Several of the aged tugs ended their journeys on the seabed.
Lucia Lopez carries her wares from the islands fish market on her head, over a high mountain and into the remote village of Covada - on foot and mostly with a smile on her lips.

Cape Verde, officially the Republic of Cabo Verde, is an island country spanning an archipelago of 10 volcanic islands in the central Atlantic Ocean. Located 570 kilometres (350 miles) off the coast of Western Africa, the islands cover a combined area of slightly over 4,000 square kilometres (1,500 sq mi).

Portuguese explorers discovered and colonized the uninhabited islands in the 15th century, the first European settlement in the tropics. Ideally located for the Atlantic slave trade, the islands grew prosperous and often attracted privateers and pirates, among them Sir Francis Drake in the 1580s. The islands were also visited by Charles Darwin's expedition in 1832. The islands were settled as the colony grew in importance on the main shipping lanes from Europe to India and Australia, and population increased steadily.

At the time of independence from Portugal in 1975, Cape Verdeans emigrated across the world, such that the population in the 21st century of over half a million people on the islands is equaled by the diaspora in Europe, the Americas, and on the African continent.

The Cape Verdean economy is mostly service-oriented with a growing focus on tourism and foreign investment, which benefits from the islands' warm year-round climate, diverse landscape and cultural wealth, especially in music.

Historically, the name Cape Verde has been used in English for the archipelago and, since independence in 1975, for the country. In 2013, the Cape Verdean government determined that the Portuguese designation Cabo Verde would henceforth be used for official purposes, such as at the United Nations, even in English contexts.

The name of the country stems from the nearby Cap-Vert, on the Senegalese coast, which in its turn was originally named Cabo Verde when it was sighted by Portuguese explorers in 1444, a few years before the islands were discovered (verde is Portuguese for green). On October 24, 2013 it was announced at the United Nations that the official name should no longer be translated into other languages. Instead of Cape Verde, the designation Republic of Cabo Verde is to be used.

Before the arrival of Europeans, the Cape Verde Islands were uninhabited. The islands of the Cape Verde archipelago were discovered by Italian and Portuguese navigators around 1456. According to Portuguese official records, the first discoveries were made by Genoa-born António de Noli, who was afterwards appointed governor of Cape Verde by Portuguese King Afonso V. Other navigators mentioned as contributing with discoveries in the Cape Verde archipelago are Diogo Gomes, who was with António de Noli and claims to have been the first to land on and name Santiago island, Diogo Dias, Diogo Afonso and the Italian Alvise Cadamosto.

In 1462, Portuguese settlers arrived at Santiago and founded a settlement they called Ribeira Grande (now called Cidade Velha, to avoid being confused with the town of Ribeira Grande on the Santo Antão island). Ribeira Grande was the first permanent European settlement in the tropics.

30 Things to do in Cape Town, South Africa Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Today we’re taking you around one of our favourite cities: Cape Town, South Africa.

We first visited Cape Town in 2015 as the final stop on a monthlong trip across South Africa. However, by the time we arrived, we only had a couple of days to spare and the weather was less than ideal, so we didn’t get to see very much.

We knew we had to return to do the city justice and also film a proper Cape Town travel guide for you guys. This time around, we gave ourselves a full week to spare.

Our days were packed with sightseeing, and with visits to restaurants, chocolate shops, wineries and gin distilleries, so without further delay, let us show you 30 things do in Cape Town, South Africa.

And that’s a wrap for our week in Cape Town, South Africa. We hope you enjoyed following along and that this guide gave you a few ideas of things to see, do and eat in Cape Town. As always, if you have any other suggestions for fellow travellers, feel free to share those in the comments below. In the meantime, wishing you happy travels and see you next time!

This is part of our Travel in South Africa video series showcasing South African food, South African culture and South African cuisine.
