What you'll do
We have lost a treasure in Vegueta and need your help to get it back! Immerse yourself into the canarian culture by overcoming a treasure hunt and venturing inside the Vegueta neighbourhood. Are you joining us? We will meet at Plaza de Santa Ana where you will be introduced to our fun adventure. We will do some warm up challenges and will tell you some curious facts. Throughout explanations of the old town history by a local guide in different locations of Vegueta, you will overcome challenges and interact with local residents. You will learn the name of the most canarian dishes so you are able to order them next time you go to a restaurant, learn the canarian dialect and listen to canarian sounds that might be new to you. Also, you will visit some spots other tourists overlook and hear some experiences we have lived in the city. Afterwards, we will head to el Mercado de Vegueta where you will unveil the mystery of the Treasure and we will have the opportunity to eat a tapa that is well-loved by residents. Remember to bring your phone and your enthusiasm as you will need them for the challenge! We will be testing your canarian level at the end of this tour ❤
