Puerto de la Cruz

This is the oldest resort in the Canaries, and sadly, cheap mass tourism and urban sprawl have all but drained it of local charm and island character. There are a few diamonds in the rough, though, and several sights on the outskirts of town make the area worth a visit. Don't stay at any of the bland, overpriced resorts by the beach, and when exploring, stick to the old sections of town, which have colonial plazas and paseos for evening strolls.
