Best Period to Go: Puerto de la Cruz experiences Northern European frequent tourists during the winter months. This is because at this time of the year, the climate is mild and popular too for Christmas and New Year periods. During the summer months, there are more Spanish tourists, during the month of August on this Spanish mainland. The Western European contingent to this city attracts more mature couples as compared to the other cities in Spain.
