Staying in a holiday let in Los Cristianos

Stacks of high-rise apartments shoulder above the palm-dotted promenades and gold-flecked sands on the south side of Tenerife. They herald the home of Los Cristianos holiday lettings, which offer a base in one of the most popular resorts in the whole Canary Islands chain. With warm weather throughout the year, it's forever a magnet for sunseekers and families. They come to catch a tan on the wide arc of Playa de Los Cristianos, to strut between the cafes and cocktail bars of Playa de las Americas, hit the shopping streets, and go on Canarian adventures over rugged volcanos and through underwater coral reefs, alike.

Food & drink 

What to eat when staying in a Los Cristianos holiday let

While Los Cristianos packs in all the international eateries you could ever want, foodies will surely like to sample the local Canarian cuisine, between their sessions of sunbathing and lazing on the beach. That means bowls of locally grown red potatoes, topped with mojo rojo. It means Moroccan-influenced chickpea and meat casseroles. And it means traditional Spanish tapas, drawing on the cooking techniques of Andalusia and the mainland. Seafood is a must-try in these coastal reaches, too. Be sure to try the fresh catches in the tavernas along the shore – they are best grilled, covered with olive oil and lemon juice.
