Eating

Due to large numbers of visitors, Candeleria is well set up for diners and snackers, with an array of seafood restaurants, cafes, gelaterias, pastelerias (cake shops), areperas (selling arepas; a fried or baked cornmeal flatbread stuffed with various fillings) and churrerías (serving churros; fried soft dough sticks, often with thick hot chocolate).
