It's called locally 'The African Spice Market' but historically it was where other commodities from Africa were sold. You can guess it was the two legged variety. Not withstanding the sad history it's a really beautiful place to spend a few hours.

Santa Cruz is the other side of the island from Puerto de la Cruz, so you would need to go by car or by bus. At least an hour's travel but suggest you check a map and bus timetable (horario).
