Tenerife’s cultural and leisure calendar is full all year round, and you’ll find something to do every day of the year. You can explore the island by yourself or – for a more lavish experience – hire a guide or driver to take you comfortably around by car or limousine while you discover some incredible places! Very near to buildings like the Adan Martin Tenerife Auditorium, you can still see the most traditional scenes, especially during local festivities. If you come face to face with one, just join in; the people are charming and they will encourage you to take part. The historic quarters of La Laguna and of La Orotava await you. La Laguna, a UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) World Heritage Site, is full of palace-houses, typical restaurants and cultural activity, while in La Orotava you will witness 500 years of culture in churches, convents, rows of balconies and gardens – offering up the full extent of Tenerife’s history.
Every day, there are music shows, plays, opera, ballet or exhibitions, as well as the island’s museum network for oenology, history, nature, ethnography and so on, for the culture-hungry tourists out there. Aside from this, Tenerife is the host of your average, expected excursions for any foreign holiday. However, as much more than your regular zoo, Loro Parque is a must-see for Tenerife’s visitors – a beautiful place where you will discover many different kinds of exotic animals in their natural habitats. You can enjoy the dolphins, the friendly sea lions and witness the largest penguinarium in Europe, with over 250 specimens. Walk through the impressive aquarium tunnel and glide amongst the world’s scariest creatures – sharks! Anteaters, gorillas, white Bengal tigers, flamencos, alligators and much more are all home to the Loro Parque, which guarantees you an experience like no other. You can also take a day out at the Siam Park (considered the best water park in the world, according to TripAdvisor), watch the sun go down in a cable car, witness an exciting show or just relax at Papagayo Beach Club.
While shopping might be seen as a prime activity in destinations such as Dubai, Tenerife also hosts a large amount of shopping centres for the big spender in you. El Corte Ingles is one of the largest department store chains in the world and the most prestigious in Spain, where you will find the best international names in fashion, jewellery, accessories, toiletries, books and music. Have an extraordinary shopping experience and enjoy the exclusive services provided by the centre, including a personal shopper, shopping menu, interpreters, national and international deliveries, and tailoring. El Corte Ingles also invites visitors to discover their restaurant area, where you will find the best gourmet foods, ideal for making a stop during your day of spending. Similarly, Parque Santiago 6 has one of the most exclusive shopping offerings in the south of the island. Situated in a privileged location, the centre also boasts a wide variety of establishments specialising in all areas of shopping needs. If you go by car, you can park in one of the two car parks available, or if you cycle, there is also a car park specifically for the more sporty guests. Have a wonderful day with your family in the children’s play area and the pleasant outdoor area, and share your best moments thanks to the free WiFi service.
