NIGHTLIFE IN TENERIFE
Tenerife is great for nightlife lovers! The party center is in the Playa de Las Americas with the most popular club Papagayo and a beach club Monkey Beach; the latter, however, is only open in the summertime and has great parties on the weekends. Next to them, there is a strip full of little clubs called Veronicas. Even though the drinks are extremely cheap there, we would not recommend it as it is mostly full of teenagers.
If you are in Los Cristianos, you can find a lot of little bars and clubs in San Telmo. The two most popular clubs there are Punta Cana and Casablanca.
In Costa Adeje, you can find the most popular local club called Acheman.
And finally, if you are traveling during the summer, it is worth visiting the capital and checking out Terraza Isla De Mar.

Keep in mind that there is no VAT tax in the Canary Islands, and therefore, many brands are a lot cheaper. Perfumes are even cheaper than in Duty-Free, so don´t buy anything at the airport and visit one of the many Perfumerías.
