Playa Americas Guide

Guide

Tenerife’s Playa de Las Americas, located along the southern coast of this beautiful volcanic Canary Island, is a fine example of a 'sun, sand and sea' destination. Thirty years ago there were only a few hotels on this beach - developed largely using sand imported from the Sahara. Today Las Americas boasts an abundance of hotels and apartment complexes to suit all kinds of budgets, making it one of the most popular summer destination. To explore the island of Tenerife prebook car hire today.

Explore Playa De Las Americas

Playa de Las Americas is a tourist magnet and offers its visitors many water-based activities, and it is home to the world famous Octopus Water Park where you can ride the famous 'Kamikaze' water slide. You can go water parasailing, fish for sharks, or try your luck surfing.

For those who prefer to stay dry, there is a new 18-hole golf course open between Playa de Las Americas and neighbouring Los Cristianos. The marina at Puerto Colon is an attractive place where you can stroll around the shops and stop off for a meal or drink to cool off.

Las Americas has a myriad of bars and restaurants around the small island. Eat in an English style pub with the family or head to a club where you will find comedy acts, cabaret shows and DJs. The central seafront areas known as 'Veronicas' and 'The Patch' come to life at night.

For peace and quiet there are a couple of attractions within easy reach of the resorts such as the animal park; Parques Exoticas. This is a great day out for the family. Jardines del Atlantico Bananera is a banana farm that occasionally has exhibitions for the public and is a fun experience for all.

Transport

The most convenient and cost effective way to travel to Tenerife is by air. Tenerife-Sur Airport is less than 16 minutes drive away. If this is your arrival destination, be sure to book car hire here. Buses and coaches service the towns and sea-side resorts of Tenerife, and to and from the airports so getting around is easy.

Car hire is one of the most popular ways of touring the island, as it gives tourists the freedom to make their own decisions on where to go and when to go. Avoid large tour groups on excursions, and see the sights in the peace and comfort of your own personal vehicle. The roads are very easy to navigate and high up on the mountain sides are tremendous views over Tenerife.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
