The Waterbus from Puerto Calero to Puerto del Carmen

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

The waterbus „express“ runs between Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen and is operated by Lineas Maritimas Romero.

Having walked from Puerto del Carmen to Puerto Calero, we decided to take the waterbus for the return journey and see where we had been from the sea.

The trip cost 6EUR for adults and 4EUR (as of October 2011) for children and even included a drink of Ronmiel for the adults on board! It should, however, be noted that there are no discounts for groups or for senior citizens. (more…)

Walking from Puerto del Carmen to Puerto Calero

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

After many years of looking at the steps that leave Calle Teide at one end of Puerto del Carmen, last year we finally ventured up them to walk to Puerto Calero.

After going up the zig-zag path to the top of the cliffs, we continued along the first part of the path which was paved and with a wall between us and the rockface. (more…)

Chili Rojo at Emma’s Cantina Mexicana

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

We’ve reviewed Emma’s Cantina Mexicana in Puerto del Carmen before, but having enjoyed the home-made „Chili Rojo“ this year, I felt it deserved a special mention.

Unlike the “Chili con Carne” which is made of minced beef, Chili Rojo uses chunks of beef in a sauce with garlic, chili, cumin, red peppers and red wine. It is served on a bed of mexican rice with frijoles (re-fried beans) and corn-on-the-cob.

It looked so delicious when it arrived, that I took a photo of it:

And it was hot. The menu apologises that the dish cannot be made less spicy and I was offered a taster in advance, but there was no need. It was not only very tasty but sufficiently spicy as to put it on a par with Pique a lo Macho in Mainz. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
