      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

      Quiet area in Tenerife

      by Autumn9 Online Now Dec 27, 2016 at 9:53 AM

      We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.

      Weather and temperature late Nov- early Dec?

      by maria_hz Online Now Aug 26, 2016 at 2:28 PM

      We would like to go to Tenerife for a week but won't be able to go until late November - early December. Would we be likely to get degrees around 25-27 at all, and if so, what part of the island?
      I'd prefer up to 30 degrees, but because of work meetings we wont't be able to go until after 24 Nov, so now I am thinking maybe it will be too cool for me by then. It seems to be low season as well, as prices seem to go down towards Dec.

      Would like to know which, mirador Cruz del Carmen or mirador Pico del Ingles has the better view point.

      My wife and I are booked into Hotel Isabel Avda. Moscu 2, 38670 Adeje, Tenerife, Spain
      for a week next February. The hotel looks fine, but we were wondering about the surrounding area.
      Are there any shops,bars etc.etc. near the hotel or are they all nearer the port ?
      We don't want to be in the middle of the "Veronicas" type madness but we don't want to be out in the middle of nowhere having to taxi everywhere.

    • Beach area/Accom - quieter that Playa de las Americas but not too quiet

      by richieb99 Online Now Feb 14, 2015 at 8:18 AM

      My friend and I are going to Tenerife for 5 days at the of this month, February. We are looking to chill on the beach and maybe do a bit of cycling, water-parking etc and go out at night for some banter.

      We are looking for a place to stay that has a nice beach area and some nightlife but not lager lout nightlife. We heard Los Cristianos is quieter and nicer than de las Americas but we haven't found any good value accommodation there yet.

      So, if anyone could recommend an area that would fit the bill or perhaps even a hotel/apartment etc that would be wonderful.

      Thanks a million

      Hi, we're coming with a bunch of friends (in our twenties and thirties), mostly for hiking and rock climbing, but would definitely also like to do some partying. Are the clubs, bars, etc, open at this time of year? Is it pretty lively, or kind of dead? Will it make a difference if we come in the last weekend of February, rather than say second weekend in March?
      It's a friends birthday trip, and I'm organising it, so wouldn't like him to be dissapointed that everything is shut and out of season...

      Hiking in Tenerife

      by Pijlmans Online Now Nov 30, 2012 at 10:38 PM


      We will be in Playa de los Americas for 2 weeks end of 2012 and plan to do some hiking on the island. We will have a car and therefore prefer round trips that start and finish where we park the car.

      I have an outdoor GPS and am looking for GPS tracks for day hikes of about 15-20 km. I have already found many tracks on internet, more than I can ever walk. We'll do the Teide hike if the weather allows.

      Now I need some advice from the experts: which part or specific hike on the island we should not miss during our hikes? It would be cool to have a mixture of different walks lunar landscapes, forests, cliffs etc to get a good feel for all the nature Tenerife has to offer.

      If you have GPS tracks of your favorite hike, please let me know!

      My Fiancee and I are planning a weeks trip to Costa Adeje in Tenerife.
      We fly out on on Christmas Eve and just have a few questions we hope someone could help with.

      We booked independently so don't have and pre booked couch. Any ideas how much a taxi would cost from the airport to the Luabay Hotel Costa Adeje ?

      Also with it being over Christmas and we dont plan on doing to much but is there anything still open over this period ? ie : bars or restaurants we are all inclusive so not to much of a problem if a lot is closed.

      Anyway any advance help or pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

      Hi everyone, myself And a friend are going to Tenerife in November, we've seen a few all inclusive and self catering options. Is it expensive enough in playa de las americas to justify going all inclusive?

      While looking over the website,for possible useful bus routes in Tenerife, I think I might have found a misprint. Can anyone tell me for sure?
      It's the 342 El Portillo - Playa las Americas service.
      There is only one to El Portillo and back a day but they have the time coming back as 13.00 whereas Google maps say 15.15
      I know that Google must have it right as people need time to look around but was unable to email the bus company 'titsa' from their website to ask.

      We hope to catching this bus at Los Cristianos and take it as far as Boca Tauce, for a walk around, unless anyone tells me any better. (don't want to take the cable car up Teide)

      I know from other posts that you can buy Bono bus tickets, opposite departure gate 45, at the airport. My question is how long does it take to get from arrivals hall to the this point? Do you go through customs and collect your luggage first? We have booked transfer to our hotel but want to buy a Bono bus ticket before we leave the airport.

      Towns of Tenerife

      by Turska Online Now Aug 15, 2011 at 2:49 AM

      I allways think, that I will not g to Canary, because we wont have anything to do there. We have been in Gran canary allready years ago.
      Now I keep getting back to Tenerife pages, because there might be warmer at march than in southern Europe (just might, I know it wasn´t this year..).
      I have heard several people saying that Playa del Amercias is full of drunken English (sorry, that´s what they say..) young adults and it´s terrible, too much party party-town. So if we would get cheap flights, what other opinions there would be? I guess Santa Cruz isn´t so nice or am I wrong? We do like bigger towns at hollidays(maybe because we live in a small one), but more important is that it wouldn´t be only touristic, nothing more than hotels. Like it was in Marmaris, Turkey at 1997 when we went there. I´m also wondering if we would find something to do there.. We hate laying on the beach, even if I love the warm weather. We usually care about museums, castles, ruins, zoo´s and so on. I just try to choose should we go to southern Spain or Italy where is more interesting things to do, or go where it is warmer..
      My parents have been in Puerto de la Cruz, and they say it´s nicer, but they were there in february once, and it was raining all the time and at the south it had been nice and warm. So it seems to be quite big difference on climate.
