Trip Report North Tenerife

Jump to last reply

I first went to Tenerife in 1995 on a cheap Internet bargain holiday. It was an "allocation on arrival"
How surprised was I when everyone else (it seemed) left the airport and headed off to Playa de las Americas, Adeje and Los Cristianos.
I was put into a taxi and driven north. The concrete of the south soon gave way to an almost arid desert-like landscape, sparsely populated. As the journey progressed the landscape became greener and the abundance of flowers and the pretty pastel colored homes were most attractive.
I arrived at what was to be my holiday destination in the resort of Puerto De La Cruz, and since that time I have had several super Christmas and New Year holidays there. The weather is perfect, yes even in December 25C - 35C is not uncommon.
I have written and populated a blog with places, things to do and see in North Tenerife. So if you fancy taking a look you can find it at

Remember all the photographs have been taken by me and most are in December or January! See those blue skies, and consider the Canaries as an all year round destination.
