Puerto de la Cruz

— 6 nights

City of Eternal Spring

As one of Tenerife’s oldest port cities, Puerto de la Cruz embodies a hip, island personality, while still retaining its historic fishing village charm.
You'll get in some beach time at Playa de las Teresitas and Charco del Viento. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Playa de Benijo. Venture out of the city with trips to Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de los Remedios (in Buenavista del Norte), Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife Auditorium (Auditorio de Tenerife), Parque Rural de Anaga, &more) and Icod de los Vinos (Cueva del Viento & Parque del Drago). There's lots more to do: admire the verdant scenery at Orotava Valley, pause for some serene contemplation at Convento De San Francisco, kick back and relax at Playa El Bollullo, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Loro Parque.

Tenerife is the largest and most populous of the seven Canary Islands. With its abundance of sun-warmed beaches, deep gorges, dramatic cliffs, dense forests, and lush valleys filled with thriving banana plantations, the island offers an impressive variety of things to do: snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing, hiking, and cycling. You can even spelunk in the island’s volcanic caves and tunnels, among the largest in the world. Tenerife is also known for its nightlife, attracting thousands of weekend revelers from nearby European countries. The island is highly urbanized, though there are still pockets where visitors can enjoy the distinctive local culture and sightseeing at a slower pace.
