Geocache Description:

ES- En Parque Taoro, en el centro de Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.

D- Im Taoro Park, im Zentrum von Puerto de la Cruz, Teneriffa.

GB- In Taoro park, in the centre of Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.

ES- Situado en los bonitos jardines del antiguo hotel de Taoro, ahora públicos. El sitio donde está el caché es considerado por muchos como un lugar tranquilo para meditar y aislarse del bullicio de la ciudad. El parque se usa ahora para el disfrute de la gente y para charlar al aire libre.
Localizado en la cima de una colina, se accede a él fácilmente en coche. Es un lugar para detenerse a tomar un bocadillo o para pasar un rato “chill out”. El banco es un buen lugar para sentarse mientras registras el caché o simplemente para leer la prensa.

El recipiente del caché es un tupper normal. Contiene un libro de registro, un par de lápices y unos artículos pequeños.

El caché está cerca de una zona de juegos infantiles y es un paseo fácil desde cualquier lugar del Puerto. Por favor, intercambie sólo objetos aptos para toda la familia. Los niños pueden jugar en la zona infantil mientras usted intercambia en el caché.

Mientras busca o esconde el caché, tenga cuidado con los geomuggles que hacen footing o pasean a sus perros. Puede haber mucha gente entre las 17.00 y 22.00 h.

D- Der Cache liegt innerhalb des gärtnerisch schön gestalteten Areals des alten Taoro Hotels, welches jetzt vom Gemeinderat als öffentliches Land übernommen wurde. Das Gelände wird von vielen Menschen als ruhiger Platz bevorzugt, um ihre Gedanken in Mitten des Gedränges und der Hektik des Stadtlebens zu sammeln. Der Park dient jetzt ausschließlich dem Vergnügen und der Entspannung. Gelegen an der Oberseite eines Hügels, ist er leicht mit dem Auto oder zu Fuß erreichbar. Es ist ein Platz, um Halt zu machen, einen kleinen Happen zu essen oder einen Moment zu entspannen. Die Bank eignet sich gut zum Loggen oder auch um eine lokale Zeitung zu lesen.

Die Dose ist ein Standard-Tupperware- Behälter. Die Dose enthält ein Logbuch, einige Bleistifte und einige kleine Sachen. Der Cache befindet sich in der Nähe eines Kinderspielplatzes. Ein leichter Spaziergang führt dich von überall in Puerto hierher. Legt bitte nur familienfreundliche Gegenstände in den Cache. Auf den Spielplatz können die Kinder dann gleich mit erhandelten Dingen spielen.

Wenn Ihr sucht oder versteckt, gebt auf Jogger oder Hunde-Muggel acht. Zwischen 17.00 und 22.00 Uhr ist hier besonders viel los.

GB- Set within the beautifully landscaped grounds of the old Taoro hotel, now taken over by the council as public land, the location of this cache is favoured by many as a quiet place to collect one's thoughts in the middle of the busy hustle and bustle of town life. The park is now used solely for pleasure and those taking time out. Located at the top of a hill, easily accessed by car or foot, its a place to stop have a sandwich or chill out for a while. The bench is a good place to sit while filling in the log, or just to read a local paper.

Standard tupperware container- click lock type. Contains a log book, a couple of pencils and a few small items. Cache is near a children's play area, and is an easy walk from anywhere within Puerto. Please place only family friendly objects in the cache. Children can play in the play area while you negotiate the contents of the cache.

When searching or hiding, watch out for muggles jogging or walking their dogs. It can get really busy between 17.00 and 22.00.

  • Park LifeWe like small pieces of soft ripe banana.

  • The Grand Hotel Taoro in 1890You have heard of "The Ritz", "The Waldorf Astoria" or perhaps "The Raffles Hotel"? Well around the world there are good hotels and there are grand hotels. We all would love to stay in one of them if only for just one night. About a centuary ago, The Taoro Hotel was just such a place. It was renowned throughout the world as one of the very best hotels to stay in whilst on your long distance sea voyage to a far distant continent.
  • The old Taoro gardens where the cache is hidden.Tenerife was a stop-over location whilst your sailing or steam ship restocked provisions. This magnificent building has changed hands many times, and eventually fell into disrepair, and was abandoned. It was taken over in about 1985 and run as a casino, but even that is no longer operating. Again it has been deserted. The huge garden was taken control of by the local council around 1980 and is now called the Taoro Park.
  • The South side of the Grand Old Hotel.These ancient photos I've managed to get (are presently displayed in the Hotel Miramar foyer next door to the old Taoro), are from the time just after it opened in 1890. While exploring the modern gardens that have only just been completed, try to visualise how magnificent the long walkway down the centre must have been. Truly a majestic place fit for a king. Enjoy!
