Teneriffe with children

A September 1998 trip to Los Cristianos by Steve H2003

Teneriffe with children

Overview

Quote:
In one week, we hired a car and visited: Mt Tiede, a 10,000 ft volcano with an extraordinary rocky landscape. The Parrot Park with great bird and dolphin shows that the children really loved. One of the numerous banana plantation to taste banana liqueur (adults only) and a trip to Puerto de la Cruz to see the old capital and visit a huge lido. All this in addition to visiting the small beach in Los Cristianos, the large beach in Las Americas, tourist shops in Los Cristianos, and eating in some of the numerous restaraunts in and around L.C.Quick Tips: Other enjoyable trips included trips on glass bottom boats to see dolphins and pilot whales in the wild, and a visit...Read More

Octopus Water Park

Attraction

Quote:
Octopus Park provides free busses from most resorts in the area and gets crowded in high season. It has large clean locker rooms near the entrance and a large number of sun terracing around the park. (An extra charge was made for sun loungers when we visited)

The park has a number of slides, including four that are suitable for adults, a lazy river, and two pools, as well as a dolphin show that is included in the entrance fee.

The food outlets were basic but OK, and it made a pleasant 'water day' for the two children, with some thrills for the adults. An attraction that was full of people of all ages and sizes.
