Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, off West Africa. The island has a place listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, the Teide National Park, which is the most visited in Spain and one of the most visited in the world. Elegant ancient towns, lively ports and isolated mountain villages mingle amidst otherworldly volcanic landscapes, and the arts shine in the cultured capital, Santa Cruz, home of the country’s most fabulous carnival. Peaceful walking trails weave past mist-shrouded hills and magma-molded calderas, and along the Atlantic shoreline, waves wash onto volcanic-pebble beaches and shimmering natural sea pools.
Tenerife is characterized by a generally dry and warm climate and thus becomes a paradise to enjoy a pleasant stay all year round.
Tenerife is best known for the Carnival of Santa Cruz, a huge pre-Lenten festival with parades, music, dance and colorful costumes. The island has many beaches and resort areas, including Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas.
Long stretches of silky sand and pristine waters, combined with temperatures barely falling below 18 degrees in the daytime, make Tenerife one of the most attractive beach holiday destinations in Europe.
The magnificent peak of Mount Teide and its natural areas are located right in the heart of the island. The easiest way to get there is from Puerto de la Cruz or La Laguna. Also, Tenerife is considered as one of the world’s best road cycling destinations and there are countless different hiking routes all over the island. Tenerife is the perfect destination for adventurous adrenaline seekers.
Staying in the capital Santa Cruz, you will be a short drive away from Teide natural park, the charming university city and the old capital of Tenerife, La Laguna.
The island has a huge hotel plant, which is complemented by alternative accommodation options such as villas and tourist apartments. Unlike other islands you have a wide variety of options in all ranges of accommodation, from super-luxury all-inclusive resorts to cheap hotels or very cheap apartments. Two of the most famous and luxury places are the Palacio de Isora and the Hard-rock hotel.
The gastronomy of the Canary Islands is made up of the traditional dishes of the Canary Islands and constitutes an important element of the cultural identity of the Canarian people. It is characterized by its simplicity, variety, richness of ingredients, produced by the fragmentation of the territory, the variety of products from the land and sea of the islands, and its eclectic character, due to the multiple cultural contributions it has received throughout its history, and the relative ignorance of it abroad. Canarian gastronomy is influenced by other cuisines, above all by the heritage of the Guanches and the influence of Latin American gastronomy, especially that of Venezuela, a country with which the archipelago has had historical human and cultural relations since the 19th century and especially in the middle of the 20th century. Finally, there are reminiscences of continental African gastronomy.
