After a day out at Siam Park, you’ll discover why the water kingdom is one of the biggest attractions in Playa De Las Americas. There are thrills and spills galore as you wind round the Jungle Snake or bounce along the Mekong Rapids. Grown-ups might prefer the warm bubbling waters of Mai Thai River as they make their relaxing way past waterfalls. While there are plenty of things for kids to do in Playa De Las Americas, the whole family will love a submarine safari to the depths of the sea for a close-up view of vividly coloured marine life.
Stroll along the dark volcanic sands of Playa De Las Americas and you’ll find it hard to know when one beach begins and another ends. Playa del Bobo and the two beaches at Playa del Troya all have plenty of sunbeds and parasols for those long sun-drenched days. The activities in Playa De Las Americas will keep watersports fans happy. Hire a jet ski for a spin around the water, or grab some friends for a ride in a banana boat. Carry on along the seafront promenade to bask in the golden sands of neighbouring resort Los Cristianos.
