Places to Visit from Playa de las Americas

Guest Post by Catherine M.

If you're heading for a holiday in Playa de las Americas this year, why stay rooted to the resort when you could get out and about to discover the rest of this fantastic island? There's so much to see and do in Tenerife, it's well worth taking the time to explore this much-loved Canary Island. Here are a few ideas on where to go and what to see when you're staying in Playa de las Americas...

Siam Park
One of the most popular attractions in this part of the island is the splash-tastic Siam Park. Based just a few kilometres away, Siam Park is one of the biggest water parks in Europe that's packed with thrilling rides and death-defying flumes. It's home to everything from a floating market and its very own beach to a bunch of mischievous sea lions, so there's entertainment to be had for the whole family.

Teide National Park
No trip to Tenerife is complete without touring the rugged beauty of Teide National Park. Its crowning glory is the majestic Mt Teide, an imposing, sleeping volcano that helped shape the island we know and love today, with violent fireworks that have left a legacy of lava fields and bizarre craggy rock formations. Other than taking a tour, the best way to discover the park is to hire a car, and you'll find stacks of car hire quotes for Tenerife online through TenerifeCarHire.com.

Go to La Gomera
Fancy something a little different? The beautiful island of La Gomera is a must-see on any trip to the Canary Islands. It's based on the southwest tip of Tenerife yet it's worlds away from the holiday island's non-stop hustle and bustle. In La Gomera, it's like time is standing still. It's peppered with white-washed villages and pine-scented forests, while the island's glorious La Garajonay National Park, protected by its UNESCO stamp, is a truly beautiful place with deep cutting valleys and spectacular scenery.

These are just three things you could do on a holiday to Tenerife. With so many wonderful experiences on offer, how will you ever fit everything in?
