Mary Cabral: active and zen tour guide

In love with Tenerife
Born in London, but of Portuguese origin, she grew up in the south of England in a bilingual and culturally very rich and affectionate family, based in the UK, which loves to travel. In her twenties she came to Tenerife with the idea of visiting the Canary Islands, Madeira and Azores before returning to Cascais in Portugal.
However, 15 years later, and curiously for some, she is still on the largest island in the Canarian archipelago, Tenerife.
Currently living municipality of Santa Úrsula in the north of in the Tenerife.
A history with Portugal and England
Thanks to an eclectic history, not only did the Spanish play an important role in the history of the islands, but also Portuguese and English have had a great influence on the Canary Islands over the centuries.
Without a doubt the traces of her ancestors who are still here influenced Mary to be settle happily on this land, feeling as if she were at home speaking Spanish of Canarian origin, which contains many Portuguese words and phrases that come from the Portuguese carpenters and winemakers who passed through the islands.
There have also been many famous English visitors to the Canaries over the years, including Olivia Stone, Agatha Christie and The Beatles. As a tourist guide, when visitors come to enjoy Tenerife, Mary tells them these enchanting stories about the islands and shows them how they can connect with them, even though they may be tourists who visit these islands from places thousands of miles away.
