Sorry for the late post - been so snowed under, but if anyone who has been to Los Cristianos, Tenerife South, can give me some tips, and to dos, be ever so grateful!
Enjoy your holiday.
I had a lovely time, the resort was great, we hired a car to drive all round, up the mountains, to the beaches, North, East, South and West! So many things to see and do, lots to eat and very cheaply too as we hunted out the places where the locals eat!
I wanted to do the sea safari and look at the dolphins, but my family did not want to do that.
However, we went to Los Cristianos (sand brought from the Sahara), to El Teide (the highest mountain in Spain) and National Park, and went above the clouds (amazing!) at Vilaflor, the highest village in the Canaries surrounded by a forest of pine trees, Puerto de la Cruz with its beautiful black sand beaches, Santa Cruz (capital of Tenerife) with its shopping, and amazing Auditorium for concerts, Los Gigantes (Giant cliffs rising from the sea) and Puerto de Santiago with its lovely marina against the steep cliffs, to Masca (village precariously perched on hillside), through the Anaga Mountains to Benijo, fishing village poised on the top of cliffs, with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Sea, bays and rocky beaches, to St Andres, fishing village and lovely sand beaches.
Always beautiful blue skies and sea...the weather was warm and lovely.
The only drawback was the internet on the resort was slow and intermittent and my internet travel booster at £1 a day from T-mobile did not work, or the Euro Unlimited Talk and Text for £2 a day did not work either. When our hired car broke down on the motorway late at night, we could not call for help! So real inconvenient.
Here we are standing above the clouds! Unbelievable!
