Centro Comercial La Laguna
This is a great shopping mall where you'll find everything from gorgeous locally produced souvenirs to electronic items as well as food and wines. The centre is situated in one of the most vibrant parts of the island in San Cristobal de la Laguna which is more commonly known as La Laguna.
The area is just 9 kms outside of the capital Santa Cruz de Tenerife and is home to the oldest university on the Canary islands which is another reason this shopping mall is so vibrant and busy because the area if full of young students. There is a great café culture in the mall as well as some really good restaurants so if you fancy a day out of the sun, shopping to your hearts content then this is one of the best places to indulge your passion for finding a bargain and to enjoy a really great meal too.
The mall opens in the morning at 10am but stays open till late, so if you are looking to spend a little time in the cool interior of the shopping centre and to sit down to either a meal, a cup of coffee or a cooling drink, you have a great choice of places to choose from in Centro Comercial La Laguna.
One of the best things about shopping in any mall on the island of Tenerife is that you will find a superb selection of goods and this includes designer labels that are a lot cheaper than anywhere else in Europe. This is because the taxes on the island are not as steep as the mainland. If you are looking for some gold jewellery, you'll find some real bargains in the boutiques at this shopping centre. For electrical goods too it does not get any better than at Centro Comercial La Laguna. One of the great places in the centre is called Leroy Merlin which is a stunning garden centre that sells some amazing plants and exotic flowers which gives the mall a wonderful horticultural feel to it. Also next to the Leroy Merlin is Ikea and opposite, on the other side of the road there is Decathlon and many more.
Getting to the shopping mall could not be easier as it is just a short distance away from the South Motorway TF1 from Santa Cruz to La Laguna. The exit off the motorway is called Las Chumberas and parking at the mall is easy.
