Tenerife: Trip to Puerto de la Cruz

1. Tenerife: Trip to Puerto de la Cruz

Depart the south of Tenerife and travel to the resort city of Puerto de la Cruz on the northern half of the island, where tourism is said to have first begun in the Canary Islands. Initially associated with the elite of Europe, who came for its mild climate and healing properties, Puerto de la Cruz and its surrounding area is also noted for its stunning flora.  Despite being the smallest municipality of the archipelago, its population density makes Puerto de la Cruz the second most populated area of the islands. Home to a wide variety of attractions, including the large sea-water bathing pool of Lagos Martiánez designed by the Canarian designer César Manrique, the heart of the city can be found at Plaza del Charco. Visit the extraordinary Botanical Gardens, or travel down Paseo de San Telmo to see the little hermitage. Look at the orchids and dragon trees of Sitio Litre, where the private mansion dates from the 18th century and has been visited by Agatha Christie and the naturist, Alexander von Humboldt among others. See the black sand beach of Playa Jardín and much more.

Despite some negative reviews here at GetyourGuide, we booked a tour. Except that the bus was about 5 minutes late, everything went great. Everything was well organized and so we drove towards Loro Park with other tourists. Since we had only booked the tour to Puerto de la Cruz, we got out beforehand and were picked up there again in the evening. The bus driver was very experienced and drove very safely. Everyone was very nice. I had previously sent an email request, but it was not answered.

it's a great day out to see another part of the island the coach trip is about 2 hours and very scenic too Puerto de la Cruz is a lovely place with a mixture of beaches and amazing front pools, lots of great restaurants around the one we loved was Compostelana Club Café which was in the center square such fantastic home made chips and a wonderful steak banquet

Enjoyable day in Puerto de la Cruz. Beautiful town, lots of places to wander and explore. The trip itself is just a bus to get there. It goes to Loro Park which is a zoo, most of the folk on the bus were booked on a trip there. Puerto de la Cruz is a fair distance from the resort towns. Its a good way to see another part of the island for a day.

The journey there and back were very varied. We even had a clear view of the Teide. In Puerto we enjoyed the view from Taoro Park. The old town is very impressive. There was a great atmosphere shortly before the carnival parade.

It was good except pick up time was 45 mins took quite awhile to get to porta del cruz.
