Tenerife and Loro Park

Travel agencies and local organizers offer their customers a very popular trip to Tenerife and Loro Park, which can also include a visit in the Teide National Park.

I did not took part in those trips. I thought that Tenerife is an island, which will require from me as much attention as Gran Canaria, and perhaps even more, so one day I will simply visit Tenerife itself. Especially that in Tenerife offers an attraction that can not be missed – the Siam Park – if I’m not mistaken it is Europe’s largest water park.

So one day in my opinion, is only a smattering of the island. However, if you know that most likely you will never come back to the Canary Islands, consider this trip.

The price of this all day long trip is about 90 EUR

Dunas de Maspalomas

dunas de maspalomas

Dunas de Maspalomas occupy a length of about 6 km and a width of about 2 km . The top height of the dunes is 10 – 20 m. They were formed by the ocean water brought by wind and sand (no, it does not come from the Sahara Desert). They are a part of a nature reserve which also includes the palm grove Palmeral and the pool la Charca. I saw only the sand dunes. They constitute the sea of golden sand and wandering through it is not easy at all. Yes, yes, despite the fact that the dunes are a part of a reserve you can walk through them, run and ride a camel, I also recommend also rollover. But you must know that climbing and descending these sandy embankments is tiring for our legs, especially since they are drowning in the scalding desert sand.

Underwater sightseeing


I did plan to dive at all, though I will not say that I did not want to. The travel agency stated the price of 75 EUR and it seemed to me that this was a bit too much. We decided only on the spot. The representative of the diving school Delphinus was so talkative and persuasive that me and my husband could not miss the diving thing, especially that on the spot it turned out that the price is 50 EUR (unless someone had previously decided to participate in a course, then the costs were higher). We were taken from our hotel to the dive bas in Taurito by a minibus. You go straight from the beach into the water there (which is why even people who cannot swim can try scuba diving).
