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.
Get out of town with these interesting Puerto de la Cruz side-trips: Icod de los Vinos (Cueva del Viento, ARTlandya, &more) and Los Gigantes (in Santiago del Teide). There's much more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Loro Parque, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens (Jardin Botanico), walk around Plaza Victor Perez, and make a splash at Siam Park.
