Santa Cruz - 1 week - no car

by SDTraveler

My partner and I (40+) are thinking of a week in Santa Cruz in beginning of October. We won't have access to car just wondering if that would be a good place to go. We would be renting a self-catering flat. We picked Santa Cruz because it seems to be away from the big crowds of 20 something and families, we like our holidays a little quieter. Also I only do English Breakfast in England! ;-)

Does Santa Cruz sound like it fits the bill? If not can anyone make any other recommendations? Specific names of towns please so I can start looking for holiday rentals.

We are also planning on a week on Las Palma - again no car. I posted a question in the Las Palma forum but noticed there had only been 3 postings since 2008 so figured I would mention it here

thanks for any and all your thoughts
Steve

You could also try Los Gigantes, buses go there regularly so its easy to make trips from there, but the people in bars and restaurants do not speak english. It's getting more touristic, but not as bad as Las Americas.

Travel Tips for Isla de Tenerife

Sleeping in Santa Cruz

by wroclawiak

Sleeping in Santa Cruz
- you have the best connections to the Anaga Mountains and to most remote places in the north part of the island
- during the carnival you can directly go from the streets to your bed, ask for room with windows going to the patio, not to the streets, otherwise you won't be allowed to sleep
- you won't have an impression that Tenerife is only one big home for the aged people, there are not so many tourists
- to get to the Teide National Park you have to change the bus in Puerto de la Cruz. From Puerto there is only one bus to the Park.

Keep Your Things Safe on the Beach!

by mazzap

For a small charge of 50c you can rent a locker right on the beach - now how good is that?! You get a key on a wristband so the whole process is simple.

They are available between the hours of 9am and 6pm.

Niza Cars

by Muya

You’ll find this car rental almost everywhere on the island. At the time we were there, they made an interesting offer : 3 days for the price of 2, which made 70 euros for a little Matis. A tiny car but comfortable and easy to park :-)
And with the rental, Niza Cars give you free tickets and different discounts in many parks and attractions of Tenerife. If you buy for example an entrance for the Aqua Club Termal in a Niza Cars office, you receive another one for free.

The Penguin House

by easyoar

The Penguin House in Loro Parque is one of the most impressive parts of the whole park. There are a few sections to the Penguin House. As you walk in, you go through the more temperate 'Pacifico' penguin area which houses the Humboldt penguins.

However the really good part of the Penguin House is the Antarctic area, where an icy climate has been reproduced. The penguins live on a lump of ice, and 12 tons of snow is produced daily to fall on this iceberg.

The most impressive penguins to live in this Antarctic House are the King Penguins (seen here in this picture). Interestingly, King Penguins don't build nests. It's not easy to guess where they keep thir eggs either! They incubate their eggs on their feet, and their young hatch out on the ice surface. Whilst this might be pretty safe in the penguin house, I'm not sure how a penguin would run away from a predator in the wild, whilst attempting to balance one or more eggs on its feet!

The Antarctic Area itself looks very realistic, the only real clue that this picture isn't shot in the wild is the light at the top of the picture! Again, I had to take this picture through the glass wall with no flash, so a high film speed rating and a steady hand are essential! There's actually a moving floor in the penguin house, that slowly takes you past the penguins.

Koi Carp in a frenzy

by easyoar

As you enter Loro Parque, you will go through a large Thai pavilion and find yourself in front of a big lake. This lake is full of lots and lots of Koi Carp which look impressive, but you haven't seen anything until they get fed!

Every so often, a Discovery Tour leaves from this site, and the fist thing they do is throw a little fish fod into the water for the carp. At this point they go nuts and all thrash around together frantically trying to get food. This picture shows exactly this.

Koi Carp are highly prized in japan, and have beeen bred for over 100 years there with just one goal in mind. The objective is to breed a white Koi Carp, that has a single red mark on its breast. The reason for this is? Because it mirrors the Japanese flag! A good example of a Koi Carp will fetch over 100,000 USD at auction. They assure you at Loro Parque that there are no such carp in their pond!
