Visit Water Parks
Tenerife has a couple of world class water parks both of which are found in the south of the island. In the north of the island are two water parks designed by Cesar Manrique an architect from Lanzarote.
Siam Park is a water park in Tenerife and is simply amazing. It has incredible water slides, lots of pools including one with the largest man made waves in the world where you can practise your surfing!. The whole park has been given an oriental theme - hence the name Siam Park. Easy to spend a whole day here and there are plenty of snack bar and restaurant facilities.
Some of its attractions include the 'Tower of Power' where you will drop a staggering 28 meters before landing safely in the pool below (see picture above), 'The Volcano' where you spin around the 'volcano's' crater in your raft and for something more relaxing the 'Mai Tai River' where you float around this long lazy river in your water tyre.
Siam Park Address: Avenue Siam, 38660 Costa Adeje, Tenerife, Spain

Aqualand, Costa Adeje
Aqualand is not such a big water park as Siam Park but it is slightly cheaper and does have a very good dolphin show. The water park has a few different pools and lots of slides. There are also sun beds, cafes and restaurants.
Aqualand's 'dolphin land' allows you to watch dolphins swimming underwater and a dolphin show is held every afternoon. There are 11 bottle-nosed dolphins at the park, 7 of which were born there.
Aqualand, Costa Adeje, is near both Los Cristianos resort and the Playa de las Americas resort and free shuttle buses travel between Aqualand and these resorts every day.
Aqualand, Costa Adeje Address: Avenida de Austria, 15 - 38660 Costa Adeje, Tenerife, Spain
Parque Maritimo Cesar Manrique
The Parque Maritimo Cesar Manrique is in the harbour area of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The park covers 22000 square meters and has saltwater pools and landscaped surroundings providing a lovely area to enjoy the sun and the water.
The park was designed by Cesar Manrique who is a very influential architect in the Canary Islands and particularly Lanzarote where he was born.
Facilities at the water park include a jacuzzi and showers and lots of sun beds.
Costa Martianez - El Lago Martianez
Costa Martianez is in the town of Puerto de la Cruz and was also designed by Cesar Manrique. It is a complex of saltwater pools and is surrounded by an impressive array of sculptures and there is also a 'geyser' in one of the pools and a water fountain that looks like a water-volcano in another! The whole complex is excellent and well worth visiting. Interesting planting and views over the sea add to the charm.
There are lots of sun loungers and showers and a restaurant.
