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.

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

It was a very positive experience. Punctuality is their strength. The driver Mrs. Monica very good and friendly. I will certainly still refer to them for future excursions. Compliments!!!

Pick up on time, transfer to Puerto de la Cruz very pleasant. All the best! Gladly again! Very nice bus driver

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

Not received direct emails so was at wrong location. But quickly solved
