  • Chorro cuaco
  • chorro blanco
  • chorro cupido

  • chorro mequinez
  • chorro del durazno

The previous night of San Juan Festivity stop by Playa Jardín awarded with blue flag recently, and Punta Brava beach, before the fires  and the music on the beaches at fall there are workshops and activities for children, then , at that magical night  have a refreshing swim or a purifiying one, as superstitious people dressing in white will be doing to get rid of all the bad and welcome positivity.

Quick look at the South of Tenerife:day time and nightlife

Impossible to describe the South in Tenerife in one post. There’s too much going on, lots of atractive things to do no matter what your holidays preferences are.

It seems easy to pick just a few things and write a general review of a place, as it’s not, today we are focusing on Los Cristianos and Las Americas in Arona.

We understand all those doubts before picking a location to spend the well deserved holidays, even when Tenerife is not that big, people usually hesitate before making a final decision and search all over the internet, so what if I show you Los Cristianos in 3 minutes? Yes, no kidding, I can do that.

How? Easy , check this Timelapse of Los Cristianos and you’ll see how it looks in 24 hours.

We all look for the perfect holidays. Perfect location, perfect hotel, perfect nightlife, wide range of restaurants, and , yes, you can have it in Tenerife.

We’d like to highlight Spring Hotels  hot deals. There are always promos going on  to spend your days off close to the beach, by the way, Las Vistas, El Camisón and Los Cristianos ones have blue flags, an environmental award only given to Top beaches that have the best conditions.
