Playa de las Americas has certainly seen some changes over its short history, and is split into key areas. Parque Santiago area (closest to Los Cristianos) is home to the Safari Centre. The resort is littered with sparkling fairy lights, upmarket shops, bars and restaurants, and horse drawn carriages taking trips up and down the main street and the main fountains in the centre. There is also the Park Troya area, known for its huge black sandy beach and the new pedestrianised walkways, San Eugenio area, which is a quiet residential area nestled behind Las Americas, above the Aquapark, overlooking the large array of boats in the marina at Puerto Colon with fantastic views to La Gomera. Central Las Americas is well known for its young lively nightlife with lots of live evening entertainment in its many English bars and pubs.
