Playa de las Americas

— 6 nights

Party Capital of Tenerife

Known around the world as a hotspot for beach life and vibrant night culture, Playa de las Américas remains one of the most-visited vacation resorts in the Canary Islands.
Get a sense of the local culture at Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria and Palacio de la Carta. Visit Playa El Medano and Playa de Fanabe for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Playa de las Americas side-trips: Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Tenerife Auditorium (Auditorio de Tenerife), Museo de Belle Artes, &more), Cueva del Viento (in Icod de los Vinos) and Masca Walk (in Masca). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de San Fernando Rey, admire the verdant scenery at Masca Valley, get interesting insight from Tours, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

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.
