Tenerife – What to do in Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas
If you’re lucky enough to be travelling to one of CLC World’s luxuriously relaxing resorts on Tenerife for your summer break, prepare to be spoilt for choice when it comes to planning your itinerary. ‘There’s something for everyone’ is a little clichéd, but when it comes to Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, it really does ring true. Here are our top five unmissable experiences for couples, families and groups.
Make a splash at Siam Park
Siam Park is an utterly spectacular water park, and you simply can’t travel to CLC World Tenerife without paying it a visit. This Thai-themed park is a wonderland filled with breathtaking slides and rides including an enormous dragon and magnificent ‘Tower of Power.’ So impressive is Siam Park that it has been voted by TripAdvisor as the Best Water Park in the World! Visit the website before your trip for a 3D tour of the park, and get the lowdown on all the attractions.
Pay a visit to Loro Parque
Loro Parque is one of the most famous attractions on the island and has earned itself another of Trip-Advisor’s ‘Best of’ titles – this time Best Zoo in Europe. It’s home to what can only be described as an astounding menagerie of critters and creatures from tigers to sea lions. The enclosures are beautifully constructed (we particularly recommend a visit to the penguin house) and the park makes for a truly memorable day out.
Sample the nightlife at Playa de las Americas
When the sun sets, Playa de las Americas lights up to show just why it has earned a reputation as the social hotspot of Tenerife. The centre of the town is where you’ll find lively bars and clubs where the party only really begins after midnight, but if you’re not looking to dance to the small hours there are plenty of laid-back bars and restaurants all around the town. Karaoke, quizzes and bar crawls are all on offer should the mood take you.
Dial up the energy on a Jet Ski safari
Relaxing on the white sand with an ice cream (or cocktail) in hand is the epitome of a holiday paradise for some, but Tenerife caters for the adrenaline junkies amongst us too! Adrenalin-fueled water sports including exhilarating Jet Ski safaris are on offer all around the coast of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, so make sure to set aside at least one afternoon on your CLC World Tenerife holiday for a high-speed adventure on the waves.
Be transfixed by the Light and Music Fountain
The Light and Music Fountain in Playa de las Americas is a much-loved attraction which is very popular with holidaymakers and locals alike. Free to visit, the fountains put on a spectacular show to music and the best part about it is that you can relax and enjoy the show as you drink or dine at one of the delightful surrounding bars and cafes.
