Travel Blogs from Playa del Ingles
My very last European mini-vacation was to Playa del Ingles, Canary Islands! My friend Leigh and I went in celebration of the end of her semester! I had just got back from chilly Amsterdam and she just got back from Liverpool so we thought it was definitely time for the beach!
The Canaries belong to Spain, but are super close to Morocco, …
... beer. The papas are boiled in very salty water with the skin and served like that, but its the mojo that is the important part of the meal. We then walked down the paseo by the sea for a while, on the left we had the buildings and moutains, and on the right we had the vast sea filled with ships, tankers, cargo ships and three oil drilling platforms under construction, so that scenery was not the best.

This is a great place to stay if you're vacationing on a budget. The suites have fully equipped kitchens, and were very clean and nice! The pool is awesome, and sheltered so it gets nice and hot out there in the afternoon. Its a 20 minute walk to the beach, but it's a nice walk, with lots of cute little stores and restaurants on the way. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at the bar was reasonably priced as well as delicious! We had an awesome time there, and I definitely would go back.
