Puerto de la Cruz is one of the top resorts in the Canary Islands. It is also the longest established most complete of all resorts on Tenerife. The Old Town is very pretty in parts and it is one of the few resorts where the locals still work, eat and drink. Much of the area around the old fishing port is full of narrow cobbled streets packed with colonial architecture.
Tourism was born here over a century ago by the British and today 'Puerto' has a wide span of magnificent hotels to suit all tastes and budgets. In addition to its old world charms it offers some of the best visitor attractions in the islands.
Here are just a few:
Lago Martianez (Lido/Pool Martianez)
Loro Parque (Parrot Park)
Playa Jardín (Sand Beach)
Bananera El Guanche (Banana Plantation and Gardens)
Parque Taoro (Park & Gardens)
Jardin Botánico (Botanical gardens)
