What to do in Puerto de la Cruz

To make the most of your vacation in Puerto de la Cruz you just have to choose your favorite plan in this list of things to do in Puerto de la Cruz. The first is a visit to the Loro Parque which, although it is not the only one, is one of the most chosen places by tourists, not only those staying in this municipality, but also many who come from different parts of Tenerife. It also enjoys great international recognition… are you going to be the only one who is going to miss it?


Go to the beach, have a drink on a terrace or visit a museum…

The Loro Parque opened its doors in 1972 and since then it has not stopped being successful and receiving thousands of tourists. Although it was originally inaugurated as an exclusive parrot park, over the years a long list of different species (lions, alligators, red pandas, hippos, dolphins, orcas…) and some attractions within the enclosure such as Naturavision, Kinderlandia, Katandra Treetops, the Zen Garden, the Aquarium and various restaurants and stores have been incorporated.

If you prefer to take a dip and enjoy the weather, another “must” to do in Puerto de la Cruz is the Martiánez Lake, an architectural work of the Canarian artist César Manrique. The large main lake is surrounded by other smaller pools for all tastes: all saltwater. Hammocks and gardens are scattered around the pools for you to sit near your favorite while sunbathing before diving into the water. You can also lie down on some of the beaches if you choose to put your feet in the sand or feel the swaying waves of the sea. On the other hand, for a more cultural tourism, you will always have some visits to make in Puerto de la Cruz to its museums: The Fisherman’s Museum, the Archaeological Museum of Puerto de la Cruz and the MACEW – Museum of Contemporary Art Eduardo Westerdahl. As you can see, there is something for everyone in Puerto de la Cruz. Go to the beach, have a drink on a terrace or visit a museum… You choose!
