Los Cristianos Travel Guide

Los Cristianos Local History

The town of Los Cristianos is an extension of the man-made Playa de las Americas, with its own port and ferry traffic. It has a town centre with all the modern conveniences of daily life in Canaries, and is set up for the heavy influx of American tourists.

With two gorgeous beaches and all the facilities the modern traveller has come to expect, Los Cristianos is a great holiday destination for the slightly older, more sedate tourist, as it isn't quite as hectic as Play de las Americas.

Los Cristianos Attractions

Top Attractions

AquaPark Octopus - Take your family to the AquaPark Octopus to see the great Dolphin show which is always a thrill for kids and grown-ups alike. There are water rides, slides, pools and sun-bed areas for fun in the sun, and for the hungry, a number of restaurants and snack bars. For those who love to shop there are boutiques and shops for all your requirements and essentials, including non-essentials, like souvenirs and the like.

Parque Las Aguilas - Located three or four miles from Los Cristianos, The Eagle Park is one of Tenerife's most exciting attractions. It is designed to give the feel of being in a jungle, and has exotic trees and jungle flora, with parrots clambering about the branches, and in the animal enclosures such fascinating creatures as the Pygmy Hippo and the magnificent white tigers. With shops and restaurants this attraction is much more than just a zoo, and affords great entertainment for the whole family.

Loro Parque - Over 20,000 aquatic animals and plants live in the world's most modern aquarium in Loro Parque. See life as it is lived under the sea in this silent submarine world, where sharks swim just above your head, close enough for you to gaze into their grim jaws and count the teeth that destroy life in a flash in one razor sharp clamp. Or, wonder at the brilliance of a thousand neon fish lighting their own world of colour.

La Costa Tapasbar in Los Cristianos, Tenerife. Not expensive, small bar with nice people. Beautifull view from the terrace and lovely menu.
