On our first full day in Tenerife, we started with breakfast.
The breakfast room.
Pastries, followed by beans on toast and hash browns for me.
Breakfast at our hotel was pretty pricey as it was €12 a day, per person, but the selection was fantastic and we filled up so much we could skip lunch every day.
After breakfast, we took a taxi to the nearby Monkey Park.
The great thing about the Monkey Park was that you could feed most of the animals with feed you buy at the start of the park or take in foods approved by the park.

I have to say that monkeys are fussier animals than I expected, either that or they wasn’t impressed by the foods I had to offer!
However, the guinea pigs were more easily pleased.
I could have spent all day feeding these little cuties.

After a great morning at the Monkey Park, we took another short taxi ride to the Camel Park.
I got very few photos, but it was a lot of fun! We did a thirty minute camel ride up hills and through beautiful desert scenery, with mountains as the backdrop.
After our camel trek, we relaxed at the park for a while drinking sangria and fizzy orange.
Before heading back to our hotel.
We played on the pool tables and took advantage of the mini golf on-site.
The rather beautiful golf course.
After I won golf, we freshened up in our apartment and headed back out for dinner.
We decided to try out the hotel restaurant and sat outside for the views.
I had a vegetable lasagne and my partner had spinach and ricotta ravioli, we also shared some courgettes coated in breadcrumbs. The food was pretty good, as were the cocktails.
After dinner, we had some more cocktails outside and watched the sun set.
We finished our cocktails, played some more pool and watched the hotel entertainment, before going back to our apartment ready for day three.
