Popular Excursions in Tenerife
Visiting Tenerife for the first time could be a little bit overwhelming. There is so much to see and so many breathtaking sites to visit.
The Island of Tenerife is kind of divided, into the North, rainy in winter and South, sunny all year round part. Guess where all the tourists go? Bingo: you guessed it correctly, to the South.
The most popular Tourists areas in the South are Los Cristianos, Las Americas with Veronicas, Costa Adeje, Puerto Colon, San Eugenio and Fanabe.
The most visited places are Teide, Loro and Siam Park. Some of the most popular excursions are Whale and Dolphin watching. Where you go by boats, to see them in their natural habitat in the Ocean.

From the South, you can see the Island of La Gomera. One of the excursions will take you on a day trip around Gomera with lunch and demonstration of the whistling language, Silbo Gomero, also known as el silbo (‘the whistle’), used by inhabitants to communicate before the telephone era, but still alive today. There are as many as 70 other whistled languages in the world, and they all exist in remote mountain villages.
The Ferry to La Gomera leaves from The Port of Los Cristianos at 9:00am. You have the option to be picked up from your accommodation or to come directly to the port. The journey takes around 50-55minutes. Mini bus collects you from The Port of San Sebastian de La Gomera and goes around the Island with the stops at the Restaurant for a lunch, Natonal Park Garajonay for a walk and Capital city for a break.
IMPORTANT: You will need your passport or identity documentation to board the ferry. If you forget the passport, you will be denied access to the ferry.
