Tenerife is a tropical island just south of the Tropic of Cancer. Normally the trade winds constantly blow from the northeast making the climate stable and predictable. All year round there are perfect conditions to practice all kinds of adventure sports. Both in winter and in summer, the temperatures are considerably mild, therefore, the climate in the Canary Islands is well known as the eternal spring.
Tenerife is well known for the "Guachinche" concept. Local vineyards open the backyard in a rural concept with homemade food, wine from the land at cheap prices. Real guachinches are hard to find and the best are rarely advertised. Hand painted signs are often found on the road. Ask the locals or check with us and we will point you in the right direction.
Tenerife is a meeting point for gastronomy. Do not miss out on the tasty wrinkled potatoes like mojo, Arico goat cheese, rabbit with salmorejo, as well as a rich variety of fresh fish and local wines. We have a list of typical Canarian restaurants that will help you to enjoy the best of Canarian cuisine at affordable prices.
Taxis are only recommended for short journeys under 10 minutes. Traveling around the island from north to south and vice versa can be considerably expensive. Let us organize your transport over long distances, that way your expenses will be more predictable. By way of example, a taxi from Tenerife South to Tenerife North can cost more than € 80 in one direction.
