Short break in Puerto de la Cruz

Hi all,

I hope to come to PDLC in a couple of weeks for a short self catering break. Can anyone suggest accomodation? I am female, travelling alone and would like to stay in the centre, somewhere relatively peaceful. Puerto looks beautiful and `real`... is this a good destination for me? I like to walk, chill in the sun, horse ride and shop!

Any comments would be very much appreciated.

We used the Diamante apartments next to Hotel Turquesa Playa , they are just a 15 minute walk from the bus station and handy for Loro Park

If you want to be near the centre, shops and restaurants ,have a look at the Alta and Bambi apartments .

We have visited Puerto for lots of years and have always felt safe ,and met many people on their own .

As for your interests , there are walks and a couple of walking companies ,but I have never heard of any horse riding facilities in the area .

Hi, the sea front has a large award winning sea water lido, with free-form pools in the shape of the Canary Islands. There are good facilities including changing rooms cafe etc. There is a small beach with surf school, and a larger 3 bay beach, with sun beds etc. The local buses are great to all parts of the island, including the airport. A large shopping mall with all the Spanish high street shops is just 10 minutes away. Bus 350, 1,05€.

Puerto has hundreds of local bars and restaurants, along with shady plazas and street cafes.

I am sure you will have a great time, and return with a lovely tan.

Hi there,

Bambi/Astoria and Alta are all in the town centre. Diamanté, Turquesa and Bahia Playa are nearer to Playa Jardin and Loro Parque. Have a look at a map of the town and see which area you prefer. Playa Jardin tends to be a bit quieter with fewer bars, restaurants and shops. That said, it is only about 15 mins walk to the town centre rom there. My personal choice would be a town centre location. Bambi/Astoria have nice studios that would be ideal for a short break.
