One day we ventured out driving up the mountains and into the valley surrounding Mount Teide. In the valley we had clear blue skies, sunshine and fantastic vistas. On another day we took a boat trip from the Los Christianos dock side. Our boat "The Jolly Roger" took us on our two hour trip, where we saw several pilot whales very close to the boat.
We visited “Jungle Park” an attraction just 15 minutes away which has many animals and birds in their jungle environment. We watched the exotic bird show, which Becky participated in and the birds of prey show with many different types of birds, including eagles and vultures. We also saw white tigers, lions and several types of monkey.
We spent the evenings enjoying the entertainment on offer. Particularly good was the "Soul Night". The stage at the hotel is outside close to the pool and we settled down to an evening drink before the show started. Everyone enjoyed the 2 singers and most of us were up on the stage at some point to dance to the music. We ate out at many restaurants, and the Chinese buffet and Steak restaurant were particularly nice.
