Tenerife is called the island of eternal spring. The island has a subtropical climate and is located on the same latitude as Florida and Kuwait, and Western Sahara. From the coast to a height of 200 meters, the temperature remains constant, with minor variations, all year and even in the coldest months seldom drops below 20 degrees. With every 150 meters rise the average temperature drops by about 1 degree. In winter there is snow on the highest peak of Teide, while you're on the beach, guests can enjoy a summer´s day.
Tenerife has many beautiful beach resorts. Above all, the beaches in the South East, thanks to the subtropical climate, and is very popular as a winter sun destination. In Playa de las Americas, perhaps the largest and most well-

Shopaholics can shop to their hearts content in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of Tenerife and the shopping city par excellence. Calle Castillo is the place to be. In this narrow pedestrian street, you'll find everything from designer clothes to Canary folk art
Do you want some culture, you have to go to the University City San Cristóbal de La Laguna. Here you can admire hundreds of architectural gems such as beautiful churches and magnificent palaces from the 17th and 18th centuries.

Do you like adventure, just make a day trip to La Gomera, the 'Green Pearl of the Canary Islands'. The vast fairytale forests of the ParqueNacional de Garajonay are definitely worth a visit. Also from here you can indulge in whale watching. The ocean around La Gomera is the habitat of many whales and dolphins. Gomera you will reach after about 45 minutes by boat from Los Cristianos.

Tenerife has two airports. One in the North (Los Rodeos) in La Laguna and the other in the South (Reina Sofia) near Los Cristianos. All international flights arrive and depart from the airport in the South
Rent a Car
We recommend that you rent a car. In the village there is a bus stop (5 min walking distance) where you can catch buses to different parts of Tenerife. LOS SILOS is a great base for nature lovers, hikers and people who are looking for rest and relaxation. RentalCars offers cheap cars with very favorable prices. We are happy to arrange a car for you. You collect the car at the airport upon arrival, in the "Meeting Point" at the airport. Pick up and drop off is (going to be) very simple and straight-
If you prefer not to use car rental, then public bus transport is also very good (www.titsa.com), you can also catch buses every day to Mount Teide National. Bus transportation is very cheap, whilst taxi is a lot more expensive, (but still cheap compared with Netherlands??). If you take the bus, we recommend that you buy a BONO, (cheaper than paying cash on the bus) Bonos are for sale in each bus station and the airports.
