La Gomera mid February

Post by Liz M » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:15 pm

I went to La Gomera many years ago, mostly through Ray Stephenson's glowing account of the place. I was not disappointed then and this time was even better, because I knew the place and saw even more than last time.

Thank you. The Hotel Jardin Tecina in Playa Santiago. It's quite a good place to stay, as it is on a bus route and the ferry stops there, too.
