Playa de Las Americas Holidays Guide
Playa de Las Americas holidays are perfect for a lively escape to the sun. Famed for its hustle and bustle, abundance of restaurants and bars, and its nightlife, it's one of the most popular resorts in Tenerife. With its stretch of golden sandy beaches and promenade, and its budget friendly food and drink options, it's definitely an area worth considering for a cheap holiday in Tenerife in 2024 & 2025. The weather here is pretty good year round so whether you want some winter sun, or prefer a nice hot week by the sea in summer, Tenerife is ideal.
Popular Things To Do In Las Americas
Troya Beach (Playa de Troya)
No holiday to Playa de las Americas is complete without a day trip to the beach. Whether Troya Beach, Las Americas or Playa de el Bobo near Costa Adeje, spending time on the sand is the best.
There are lots of boat trips you can take, from a party boat with friends, to dolphin and whale watching trips. Many will organise a transfer to pick you up from your hotel and take you to the marina.
Walking along the promenade here, running from Los Cristianos all the way past Costa Adeje, is lovely, especially in the early morning while it's still quiet, the palm trees rustle in the breeze and the temperature is cool.
There is plenty of shopping in Las Americas to enjoy, with lots of boutique stores along the seafront, holiday shops with beach towels and dresses and much more. Or you could jump on the bus to Siam Mall.
Getting to, from and around Playa de las Americas
Tenerife South airport is the nearest airport to Playa de las Americas (flying into Tenerife North airport will add a good 30-45 minutes onto your journey), with pretty much all direct UK flights flying into the south. Airlines like Ryanair, Jet2 and easyJet fly from UK regional airports like Belfast, Newcastle and Bristol too. Once you arrive, there are a number of options to get from the airport to Las Americas.
Many flight inclusive packages will include coach transfers, mainly with TUI and Jet2holidays, and if yours doesn't, it's a cheap way to get to your hotel. It's worth booking this in advance when you book your holiday.
A taxi is another option, taking about 20 minutes and the journey will cost around €30-35 each way. This is obviously more expensive but does give you more freedom.
There is a local bus that leaves from outside the main airport terminal and takes you into Playa de las Americas for around €4 per person. Sundays aren't as frequent but if you don't mind waiting around, this can be very cheap, especially if you're travelling alone.
If you sometimes get a little bored by the pool, hiring a car can be a great way to get out and explore the island. You probably don't really need one to get around the town but if you wanted to hire a car from the airport, this is affordable when booking in advance, otherwise you can pick up a hire car close to your hotel, if not at your hotel. Explore the coast here by heading up to Las Gigantes, or around to Golf del Sur, or head up into Teide National Park, as long as you're okay with heights!
Things to do in Playa de las Americas
Being one of the busiest resorts in Tenerife, there is loads to do in Las Americas, making it great for families and groups. Whether you simply want to chill out by the pool or at the beach, or try one of the more adventurous attractions, activities and water sports like parasailing, banana boating, go karting or paragliding.
Be sure to try out the kayaking with dolphins or if you want to see them in a more leisurely style, there are a number of dolphin and whale watching trips with pick ups from your Las Americas hotel.
Of course any visitor to Tenerife needs to spend a day at Siam Park. Rated on Trip Advisor as the number one waterpark attraction in the world, it’s easy to get to in Las Americas and the park puts on shuttle buses for those staying out of town.
Siam Park water park has been rated the best water park in the world on TripAdvisor, and it's easy to see why. This sprawling promises lots of fun amongst the water slides, wave pool and lazy river. With year round sunshine, this place is open throughout the year and tickets can be bought online, in advance from selected outlets and shops around Las Americas, or at the park.
Teide National Park
If you want something a little different from another pool day, head up into Teide National Park, either hiring a car or by an organised excursion. Trips will take you up through the pine forests to the lava fields below Mount Teide volcano. You can take the cable car to near the top, or simply enjoy a walk around the lava fields. This place is particularly great for star gazing too.
Where to stay in Playa de las Americas
There's a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets in Playa de las Americas, and most are within an easy walking distance of the restaurants and beaches. From self catering holiday apartments to family friendly hotels and all inclusive resorts, all budgets and needs are catered for. Many hotels have sea view rooms and kids clubs, however, family holidays might be better suited elsewhere if you prefer a quieter, more relaxing resort.
Playa De Las Vistas
Playa de las Vistas is a gorgeous sandy beach surrounded by bars and restaurants, making it a popular place to stay and close to Los Cristianos. Hotels near here include the Coral Compostela Beach, Mediterranean Palace Hotel and Parque La Paz.
Las Americas - South
The coastal area between Playa del Camison and Las Americas beach is still busy but a little quieter than other areas. A surf school, beach bar and a few shops sit amongst the hotels which include Parque Santiago IV, Parque Santiago III and the H10 Conquistador.
Well known for its nightlife and the party place on the island, especially in the summer months of June, July and August, Veronica's Strip is where you'll find the late night clubs and bars. If you want to be nearby (so you don't have to walk too far to get home), check out hotels like the Sol Tenerife and Alexandre Hotel Gala and the Alexandre Troya Hotel. The Starco Centre is also closeby which has both shops and lively bars.
Booking Your Holiday
Booking your flight and hotel together as a package can help you save money. We always recommend booking with a travel company who offers ABTA or ATOL protection like loveholidays, easyJet Holidays or TUI, but you may be tempted to book low cost flights with Ryanair and your accommodation separately through Booking.com, so just make sure you have good travel insurance.
All inclusive holidays here are possible, however, with so much on your doorstep, you'll definitely want to get out and explore. Half board could be a good option as an alternative, allowing to have certain meals included, but giving you the freedom to try some of the local tapas bars and restaurants.
Free Child Places
Companies like Jet2holidays and TUI offer free child place holidays to Playa de las Americas, with some key family friendly hotels involved. These are usually throughout the year but can get booked quickly. Simply search with your prefered tour operator to see what's available.
Booking in advance can be another great way to save money, securing the price of your holiday early. As a result, many travel agents and tour operators allow you to pay a low deposit, often £50 or £60 per person, and then pay off the balance over time.
If you're flexible with when you fly and where you stay, late deals to Tenerife can help you save money...sometimes. Las Americas has budget friendly hotels that often need filling, but at peak times like during the summer holidays in July and August, prices can skyrocket so it's not always the most cost effective.
