Puerto de la Cruz

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.
Explore Puerto de la Cruz's surroundings by going to Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Plaza Del Principe, Finca Canarias Aloe Vera, &more), San Cristobal de La Laguna (Sede Casa de Carta Museos de Tenerife, Real Sociedad Economica de Amigos del Pais de Tenerife, &more) and Sentiero Punta del Hidalgo - Chinamada (in Punta del Hidalgo). There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Loro Parque, try out the rides at ARTlandya, make a trip to Chinamada, and head outdoors with Centro Deportivo y de Ocio Puerto de la Cruz - CDO.

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.
