Trust in us to act as your practical and useful guide for your stay at our island. Thanks to our experience we will let you know the best Tenerife tips for any tourist who wants to explore our particular paradise from end to end and soak up the customs and traditions that surround us. It is essential to approach a trip of this calibre prepared and not to make mistakes beforehand. Here are a few tips for you, traveller.
It is important to know the weather of the place before you visit it for the first time or if you are coming back in a different season of the year. Tenerife has a subtropical climate, with temperatures varying by an average of 6 degrees celsius a year, from a minimum of 18 degrees celsius to a maximum of 24 degrees celsius. Generally, temperatures are mild and spring-like all year round, and it is one of the places in Europe with the most hours of sunshine per year, about three thousand hours.
Furthermore, there is no abundance of rainfall in any season and the island's orography allows for a clear differentiation between the north and south sides thanks to the effect of the canary trade winds. This makes us believe that you can organize outdoor plans all year round, sporting activities during your vacations due to the softness of the summer weather and the dryness of the winter. So don't fill your bags with a million coats, hats, scarfs and boots. Three essential pieces of advice that you have to take into account when you visit us.
The canarian gastronomy is very varied and rich, the influences of the different maritime visitors we have had during our history is a true reflection of this variety. There are dishes that you have to try before you leave.
Escaldón de gofio, it is made with our typical flour, onion, fish broth and more ingredients.
Piñas, papas y costillas. A stew of ears of corn, potatoes and pig ribs topped with its typical mojo verde (cilantro mojo).
Tollos, lapas, ropa vieja, almogrote, miel de palma, carne fiesta, rancho canario, papas arrugadas, quesillo, polvito uruguayo and many other dishes (some originate from other islands, but are commonly eaten on Tenerife).
A table full of splendid delicacies perfect for getting to know the local gastronomy. In this case, our advice to you is: Visit the guachinches to discover these dishes first hand. The guachinches are typical Canarian restaurants that borned in the north of Tenerife as a result of the need to sell the wine harvested. This has led to the progress of our gastronomy and the safeguarding of our culinary traditions. Moreover, their prices are very economical.
The island of Tenerife is characterised by its friendly people, full of life and always ready to help travellers. We live in an open environment, used to welcoming visitors from all corners of the world and eager to share a little bit of this wonderful paradise in which we find ourselves. Our advice: open your mind and mix with the Canarian people.
They are the ones who will guide you to that secret spot that does not appear on Google, to that hidden beach that is not well signposted or to that lost "guachinche" in the middle of some northern municipality. There are also very special festivals such as carnivals, romerías or bailes de magos. Be part of our big family during your holidays.
