Canaria Islands, Tenerife – Puerto de la Cruz

Published: 8.8.2022
In the northern part of Tenerife, there is a peaceful town of Puerto de la Cruz. It originated from a former fishing settlement and later became a major port city. Today, its main economic activity is tourism, so there is a large number of hotels. After all, you can find nice apartments for a very reasonable price. In combination with reliable public transport, you do not have to pay to travel agency for services at your vacation.

Unlike the dry and warm south, the north is more windy and the weather is damper. This creates ideal conditions for strolling through the charming city center, sitting in the front gardens of the restaurants or watching the untamed waves of the ocean. The weather is pleasant even in the winter, so Puerto is frequently visited during Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations.

The biggest tourist attractions include an 18th century botanical garden, banana plantations, Lago Martianez - a complex of fresh sea water pools and a zoo called Loro Park. The biggest attraction, however, is the almost black coast, which is made of lava stones. Because of the more rugged beaches, it pays to have water shoes with you. The water in the ocean may be somewhat colder for some, and windy weather sometimes causes quite strong waves. However, at least for refreshment, the water temperature is sufficient.

While walking through the city center, you can see typical colonial architecture and historic houses with wooden balconies. I recommend going to the magnificent Plaza del Charco, an oasis in the middle of the city. Perhaps this is because palm trees and laurels imported in Cuba in the 19th century create a pleasant shade. Another point of interest is just about the street next to the old fishing port, where the small Playa del Muelle beach is now located. You can also see the 17th-century Castillo San Felipe Fortress to protect the island from pirates, Englishmen and Frenchmen.

We can also use the city as a starting point for interesting trips in the area. Thanks to quality trips, we can make a day trip by bus or rented car to La Laguna or under the Pico del Teide volcano.

The most impressive place we have seen in Tenerife is the dormant volcano Pico del Teide. It rises from the center of the island to the clouds up to 3 718 m above sea level, making it the highest point of both Spain and the Atlantic Ocean. If we measure it from the ocean floor, it is even the third highest volcano in the world. The volcano is also a national park with the surrounding countryside and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It is not easy to get to the top of the Pico del Teide volcano. You have to get permission, which is free, but I recommend to apply for it at least a few weeks in advance. The reason is the limited capacity of 200 people per day. But we got to the top of the crater differently.

The Canary Islands are one of the popular holiday destinations, which is still inclined to travel today. Of course, PCR tests are needed before departure from the Czech Republic, antigen tests before returning to the Czech Republic and PCR tests again after returning home. However, the services are slowly becoming cheaper, so holidays on these exotic islands are becoming more financially enjoyable every day.
