Puerto de la Cruz is an attractive resort with a mountainous backdrop and full of fascinating architecture. It is the perfect choice for that romantic holiday to Tenerife.

Places to Stay and Relax

If you're looking for a quiet town in Tenerife away from the party resorts in the south, then head to the Hotel Blue Sea Interpalace. Located on the north side of Tenerife, this resort typically appeals to families and older couples searching for a relaxing holiday.

In the old town of Puerto de la Cruz you will find the impressive natural salt water swimming pools designed by the famous architect/landscaper Cesar Manrique. The breath-taking Lido Martianez includes seven pools, changing facilities, subtropical trees and plants, a huge fountain, a Jacuzzi, playground equipment, restaurants, and even an underground dance hall and casino. If you like riding the waves on your holiday, there is a pretty beach to the west, Playa Jardin, with good surfing and palm trees to relax under.

For a luxury 5* stay, pick the Iberostar Grand Hotel Mencey. You can enjoy the quality fitness facilities, spa and gaming tables, all with a 24 hour reception.

Explore

If you're planning some day trips on your holiday, Puerto de la Cruz has plenty to offer. There is a good bus service or you can hire a car and explore the rest of Tenerife easily. There are the beautiful Botanical Gardens with their renowned orchid collection, or if you're on a family holiday, it is home to the large zoo, Loro Parque. If you're keen on walking holidays, it is also an excellent base for exploring La Orotava Valley, which can be seen in all its glory from the Mencey Bencemo Cave in Santa Ursula, La Laguna and the Anaga Mountains – with a slightly cooler climate than the south. This area has perfect conditions for walking.

Lago Martianez

Also known as Lido Martianez, this complex of lakes and pools is one of the most popular days out in Puerto de la Cruz. It is great value at around €3 and you can easily spend the whole day here, with its wide range of swimming areas, cafés and bars, and nightlife.

The whole complex is lit up at night and makes a great place for dinner al fresco. There is even a casino here that is under the lake.

Carnival

...or Carnaval as the locals know it, is the annual spectacular that happens to celebrate the beginning of Lent. The amazing street parades and parties are not to be missed if you are on holiday in Tenerife at the right time.

You will see all sorts of weird and wonderful traditions including the drag queen race and the burning of the sardine!

Loro Parque

Children and adults alike will enjoy this huge wildlife park that has daily dolphin and orca shows in one of the largest aquariums in Europe, parrot and bird of prey shows, and mountain gorillas.

This is a truly unique day out where you will also see one of the largest populations of penguins outside the Antarctic!
