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 Piscinas Naturales El Caleton. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Playa El Bollullo. Venture out of the city with trips to Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife Auditorium (Auditorio de Tenerife), Parque Rural de Anaga, &more), Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de los Remedios (in Buenavista del Norte) and Charco del Viento (in La Guancha). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Playa de Benijo, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Loro Parque, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria, and contemplate the long history of Plaza de Patrona de Canarias.

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.
