Drinking & Nightlife

Santa Cruz does not have a wild nightlife; that said, there are plenty of quiet terrace bars where you can nurse a drink or two. In town head to Calle Álvarez Abreu for the closest thing you’ll find to a nightlife scene. Plaza José Mata, off Avenida Puente, also has a few late-night bars. Avenida Marítima is lined with cafes and zumerías (juice bars) where you’ll find a family-friendly atmosphere.
