Come for the party, stay for the beaches

Playa de la Americas is a lively resort on Tenerife, the largest of Spain's Canary Islands, located off the northwestern coast of Africa. Known for its active nightlife, the heart of the city features late-night bars and clubs filled with music and dancing. But you can also book a Playa de la Americas vacation rental if you're seeking nothing more than rest and relaxation, as the area beaches beckon you to simply lounge about on their sandy shores. The surrounding mountains also serve as a peaceful respite from the fast-paced lifestyle of the resort.

Soak up the sun, then dance through the night

The fresh waters of the Atlantic Ocean invite you to experience such water-based activities as windsurfing, scuba diving, and snorkeling. Some area beaches offer a more laid-back experience, featuring sunbeds, picnic facilities, and breakwaters that create calm waters for swimming. Back on land, you can treat yourself to a spa pampering session or a bike ride along the waterfront promenade. Take a stroll down Avenida las Americas, a thoroughfare lined with trendy shops, bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and luxury hotels. Little ones can cool off in the open-air fountain that features a music and light show.

From flamenco to flumes, fun will find you

Leave the party scene behind and explore the city's cultural landscape at Arona Pyramid, a 1,600-seat auditorium that hosts traditional and modern flamenco dance performances throughout the year. For those that prefer the great outdoors, pay a visit to Central Park of Arona, a large green space with gardens and trails, or Golf las Americas, an 18-hole course right in the heart of the city. If you're staying at your Playa de la Americas vacation rental with kids, Siam Park is an area water park with slides, wave pools, and children's splashgrounds.

Picture perfect—sunny days that sweep the clouds away

Whether you book your Playa de la Americas vacation rental in the dead of winter or the peak of summer, your day at the beach will probably include sunshine and blue skies. Rainfall is rare but bring an umbrella for those December days, when things can get a little wet. Winters are mild with daytime highs in the low 70s and a sweater is enough to keep you warm on evenings that barely dip into the 50s. Keep your flip-flops handy for summer days when temps hit the mid-80s, and for spring and fall afternoons that reach the high 70s.

Life's just a day at the (man-made) beach

There's nothing quite like the beaches of Playa de la Americas, as many are man-made creations featuring white sand imported from the Sahara. The region's natural beaches contain black sand made from local volcanic rocks. For an up-close encounter with wildlife, venture out into the Atlantic Ocean, where the waters are teeming with whales and dolphins. Back on land, the parks are dotted with native flora, including tamarind, macadamia, and palm trees, plus coastal shrubs. The city butts up against the modest Chayofita Mountain and it's just an hour's drive to Mount Teide, a 12,000-foot volcano with an open crater.
