Top 5 Worst Attractions in Tenerife

Have you ever felt as if the place you are visiting is not as exciting as you first believed it would be? You paid for it, you paid to get to it, and now you are just sitting there, wondering if you shouldn’t have used this precious time to see a place that was actually worth it. A lot of us are afraid to waste precious time and money, simply because vacations are short – we want to enjoy as much as we can from them. So from one tourist to another, here are some inside tips about attractions in Tenerife and why we believe they should be avoided at all cost.

  1. Siam Park

Siam Park is generally exciting if you are going alone with your partner or 14+ year old children. However, if you are going on a vacation there with children below 10, it’s the worst place you could end up in. There are age and height restrictions everywhere, so if your kid is 6, the only place you will be allowed to go to is the “Lost Island.” Plus, the fact that they even make you pay for lockers is something that deeply irked past tourists.

  1. Playa de Las Americas

If you go to Spain, you will obviously want to spend some precious time at the beach. However, tourists say that the beach on the south side of the island is “one big awful concrete forest.” Hotels are unpleasant to look at, and the dikes that make the artificial beaches will cut off from the beauty of the actual beach. The only thing good about that beach is that it’s great for surfers and bodyboarders.

  1. Loro Parque

A theme park located in Tenerife that holds animals which have nothing to do with the place (penguins, gorillas, etc), but it is also a danger to the native animals. The maintenance of the park isn’t as careful as they make it sound, and if a swarm of Egyptian bats managed to escape there, who can say that the next one won’t be a ferocious animal that can harm our kids?

  1. Time Share Hotels

They’re very popular among tourists for some reason, but also very good at scamming you for money. Double-check all deals, and avoid them if you have other opportunities to take. Not all deals are like they seem to be.

  1. Animal Pictures

Once in Tenerife, you will see various people carrying snakes or parrots, which they will let you take pictures with. They may be nice to look at, but keep in mind that they will charge loads of money for that picture.

Once you settled on some nice, worthy attractions, take advantage of some professional Tenerife airport transfers to move you around. They’re much cheaper than the ‘sharks’ (taxis) you’ll find on the street because the prices there will be fair. Plus, you won’t have to wait in line only to be rejected by a rude driver that says “this is my price, take it or leave it.”
