If you want to know where to park in Puerto de la Cruz when you come to visit this wonderful city, we show you below the available alternatives, so you can enjoy everything it offers you.
Parking in Puerto de la Cruz
Depending on the time and day you visit Puerto de la Cruz, it may be easier or harder to park in the most central area of the city, and if you are not willing to walk a few minutes to reach the busiest area, sometimes you will have to spend a few minutes looking for parking or leaving your car in a nearby car park.
You should also bear in mind that bus connections between Puerto de la Cruz and other towns and cities on the island are very good, so we also invite you to consider the option of leaving the car aside and use public transport. In this way you will also do your part to take care of the environment.
Free parkings in Puerto de la Cruz
Undoubtedly, the best option to get free parking in Puerto de la Cruz is going directly to the pier esplanade, just off the coast and very close to Plaza del Charco.
It is difficult that you do not find a parking space, since it is a quite large esplanade, although in specific events part of it is occupied by tents, fairs and different shows that sometimes are usually held there.
It has the advantage that it is very close to some of the most emblematic areas of the city.
If you park at the pier esplanade, do not forget to say hello and get to know the Monument to the Fisherwoman located on the promenade.
Playa Jardín Area
If you do not mind taking a stroll to get to the city centre and enjoy the landscape and the surroundings, the vicinity of Playa Jardín have long streets and avenues where you can almost certainly find a parking space, except on very specific occasions as on the night of the Bonfires of San Juan.
Of course, you will have to walk a few minutes to reach the centre of Puerto de la Cruz and then return, but since every corner of the city has something to enjoy, the stroll will be very pleasant and you will not mind having parked away from the centre.
Paid car parking at Puerto de la Cruz
If you do not find a parking space in the surroundings nor in the pier esplanade, and you are not willing to spend much more time trying to get a parking space, you can always choose some of the paid car parkings of the city.
Plaza de Europa car park
As you already know, Plaza de Europa is one of the places where a large number of events are held every month in Puerto de la Cruz, and in this area, particularly in these days, it is quite difficult to get a free parking space.
