The smallest town in Tenerife, Puerto de la Cruz offers a unique experience combining urban, sporting and ecological tourism.
Located in the Orotava Valley, Puerto de la Cruz is home to several hidden gems, such as the Risco Bello, one of the most beautiful gardens in the Canary Islands with exotic plants, waterfalls, caves and fountains.
With one of our budget trips to Puerto de la Cruz, you’ll be able to take in the volcanic oceanfront with black sand beaches like the Playa Jardín complex. Take a walk along the Paseo de San Telmo promenade to the Punta del Viento, a viewpoint where you can admire the spectacular waves crashing against the cliffs.
Take advantage of our package holidays to Puerto de la Cruz and enjoy the active tourism activities on offer there. Go surfing or paragliding on Playa de Martiánez beach, head off on routes to volcanoes, enjoy a day’s potholing in the largest volcanic tube in Europe, or go hiking along the coast.
At the Loro Parque park you’ll be able to enjoy the many exhibitions with sea lions, dolphins and orcas that will amaze you, and renowned attractions such as Planet Penguin, the world’s largest recreation of the Antarctic environment. You can also learn about the Loro Parque Foundation’s research and conservation initiatives.
Puerto de la Cruz has a wide range of culture, entertainment and nightlife offerings. Its variety of bars and restaurants makes it the perfect place to enjoy the local cuisine: the famous papas arrugadas potatoes with mojo sauce, traditional dishes such as sancocho stew with gofio and delicious fish dishes, either stewed or grilled. If travelling in February, you’ll be able to enjoy Carnival, known on the island thanks to the “burial of the sardine” festivities and the Coso, the grand climax of the fiestas. If your trip is in June, the bonfires of San Juan celebrating St. John’s Eve will be held in the Barranco de San Felipe, illuminating this magical night as you go for the traditional purifying swim in the waters of the Atlantic.
