Truth be known, Tenerife has so many lively areas that you are never far from a party atmosphere but we have been paying particularly close attention to Puerto de la Cruz recently.
The resort of Puerto de la Cruz is recognised as one of the hotspots for evening entertainment and late night party atmospheres but it keeps this well hidden in the early hours of the evening.
Start the Night as You Mean to Go On
The parties don’t really get started until midnight approaches but Avenida Generalisimo is a great place to start and end your night. The earlier crowd offer a sophisticated atmosphere in some of the swanky bars that adorn the streets but it is a completely different animal after the clock chimes midnight.
In a Cinderella-like style, this part of Puerto de la Cruz shows its true colours after midnight and the colours of choice are neon.
The luminous signs of clubs and late bars brighten up the formerly sleepy stretch and an eclectic crowd arrive in throngs keen for some more cocktails, shots of sambuca and tequila and an MTV playlist turned up to full volume.
Breathe New Life into Old Town
However, this isn’t the only place to be during a cheap holiday in Tenerife. The old town and the area of Plaza del Charco, patrolled by palm trees, is usually alive with a varied clientele, chatting boisterously above the mix of local and commercialised music.
The array of bars and clubs to choose from here varies from the uber indie to the sleek lounge bars and to this end, there are plenty of groups mingling and making the most of the comfortable settings.
