"Tenerife - Canary islands." Isla de Tenerife by Regina1965

Isla de Tenerife Travel Guide: 1,423 reviews and 3,058 photos


We were staying in Gran Canaria but came over to Tenerife by ferry from Puerto de la Nieves (Agaete). The name of the ferry was Lineas Fred. Olsen. Our purpose of visiting was to see the biggest zoo in the Canary islands, LORO PARQUE. See my tips on Loro Parque.


Loro Parque is in the outskirt of Puerto de la Cruz and we visited the town by a small yellow train which goes from Loro Parque for free to the center of town and back.

Loro Parque - Penguins in Tenerife.

This was such a lovely experience, soft music was playing and one stands on a floor which is like a conveyor belt and takes you around this wonderful penguin room.

      It is a lovely place to visit during winter time, Karl. I used to visit Gran Canaria every year to shorten the dark winters here in Iceland.

      They are well fed, loved and looked after, and a lot of what they do is the same as in the wild.

      We went there before VT in 2007, thus such few tips. But I stayed close to Puerto de la Cruz for 3 weeks back in 1978.
