Puerto de la Cruz is a lovely place and very cheap just gets more expensive near the beach as you would expect Lora park zoo is brilliant for adults and kids just not very organised with queuing when entering animal shows you become squashed in a big crowd although shows fantastic. <br /> <br /> The beach is rocky with black grit but on the beach there is a fantastic cheap small water park with natural sea water a great day out for the family there is lots to do and see although unfortunately we didn't get round to everything but was told there's volcanoes boat rides a main water park an hour away on a free bus service. <br /> <br /> Very nice place with nice food in the restaurants.

There was so little to do in the resort - nowhere to go other than to eat. The water park - the queues were horrendous every day, just about all day - left the queue after waiting for over an hour to get it and went on the beach instead. However, the entrance to the sea is extremely rocky and very difficult. The tides were very strong and you need to be a strong swimmer to swim further out as the current just takes you away. There is a lifeguard on one side of the beach, but not the other (but this is the side they also do surfing, so again not great for swimming). <br /> <br /> The range of restaurants was immense. Prices no cheaper than back in the UK and in some places more expensive. I sadly wont be returning to Tenerife - please do not go here with teenagers as there is absolutely nothing for them to do. For the first holiday ever I and my son were counting the days until we returned home. <br /> <br /> Extremely disappointed with the whole experience. Sorry!.

It was an old established city, there was lots going on in the town centre at night, it wasn't a booze place but the locals knew how to party. I was there all of July, there were different festival's and they were good fun, it was cloudy quite a few days but this was great because it kept the heat from getting too uncomfortable. I did one or two trips, Mount Teide, sky at night and hiking in a gouge, it was very nice.

Puerto de la Cruz has a tranquil, old fashioned feel and is wonderful place for walking about in. A great deal of it is pedestrianised so you're not forever dodging traffic or putting up with noise and fumes. Watching the sea at the many and various points as it crashes against the volcanic rocks can become addictive. There are two beaches of black sand and a huge, amazing and attractive lido with several pools of different sizes and depths and plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. Eating out and especially drinks cheaper than in UK. Enjoyed visiting some parks and gardens, which were about half an hour's walk from the front, though this was uphill and involved lots of steps. Good exercise but getting there on foot could be tricky if not impossible for the lass able. Walked to Loro Parque, which is near one of the beaches. Ok if you don't mind crowds or seeing animals in captivity. The highlight was the emperor penguins. Day trip to El Teide and a few other spots was good and we hired a car one day and ventured into the mountain area in the North. Lots of hairpin bends but enjoyed some great views and discovered some tiny villages in preposterous settings, where food was being grown on a very small scale against the odds. Quite an eye-opener. I would love to go back to Puerto de la Cruz.

Beaches

Playa Jardin is the largest and most popular beach; it has black sands and is backed by beautiful beach front gardens. Across the other side of the town, Playa Martinez is ideal for sunbathing and the waters are great for surfing.

In between the two beaches, Lago Martianez is the famous lido designed by Cesar Manrique. Here you can relax on the spacious sun terraces surrounding a string of pools leading to the main lake-style pool complete with islands; watch the fountain and admire the sea views.

Things to Do

As a port and fishing village, the city dates back to 1502. Some of the oldest buildings you can visit include the early 17th century Customs House and 18th century Santa Barbara fort, both near the harbour.

For views over the town and the Lago Martianez, head up the hill to the Taoro Park (former site of the Taoro Casino) where you will also find a cafe and a children's playground.

Loro Parque is located on the edge of the city and is a world class attraction. It comprises a wildlife park and huge aquarium set in tropical landscaping. There are also daily shows with the whales, dolphins, tropical birds and the sea lions.

Pueblo Chic is also on the outskirts of the city and offers a fabulous overview of the island in miniature. Far more than your common or garden model village, you can see all the island's landmarks and attention to detail is splendid and well worth taking a really close look.

Out and About

In the old quarter, admire the sea views from the Plaza de Europe and discover all the old churches and plazas; the Nuestra Senora de la Pena de Francia and the Church of San Telmo.

Walk for miles along the seafront promenade or seek some shade in the narrow pedestrianised shopping street of Calle de Hoya. There are plenty more shops, bars and restaurants surrounding the Columbus Plaza and indeed throughout the entire resort. Sit in a pavement cafe next to the Plaza del Charco or, if you have little ones, take them into the square where there's a children's playground.

Nearby Attractions

The Sitio Litre Orchid Gardens are located in the grounds of an 18th century mansion on the outskirts of the town (approx 10 minutes walk from the seafront). Approx 10-15 minutes further walking will take you to the Botanical Gardens of La Oratova.

Set amid vineyards and banana plantations, the classy and historic town of La Oratova is just 10 minutes drive away. A wealth of history and Canarian architecture await in this charming town of cobbled streets, colonial mansions, chic boutiques and traditional tapas bars.
