Beside diving, tell us about the area: Playa de las Américas is a purpose-built holiday resort in the southern and southern-west part of the Municipality of Arona, close to the adjoining Municipality of Adeje in the west of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. It was built in the 1960s beside the town of Los Cristianos and stretching west to the Costa Adeje.

Describe types of diving in the area: Excel have a selection of dive sites of differing depths and difficulty levels – something to suit everyone. Many sites have dramatic volcanic rock formations such as basalt walls, swim-throughs or caves. Others are simply abundant with marine life, such as shoals of roncadores, or resident turtles.
