The cultural heart of Tenerife

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the cultural heart of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. While most skip the town and head straight for the resorts and beaches, those who stay are rewarded with a beautifully preserved old town, with baroque architecture, museums and pretty streets lined with boutique shops. Don't miss the hop on, hop off bus, whose regular departures whisk guests on a whistle-stop tour of the town. The city is also Tenerife's culinary capital and the buzzy restaurants and fresh seafood dishes are never far away from your Santa Cruz de Tenerife vacation rental.

Things to do

Hop on, hop off in Tenerife

If you're just swinging by Santa Cruz de Tenerife on a flying visit and want to experience its historical landmarks, one of the best ways is on the regular open-top bus where you can jump on and off where ever you wish. There's plenty of culture near your Santa Cruz de Tenerife vacation rental, including the Auditorium of Tenerife, the Parliament buildings and the bustling university. If you're lucky enough to be visiting in February or March, you can't help but immerse yourself in Carnival, an annual colorful festival that sees the streets burst into life.

Activities

Hiking or water sports? The choice is yours in Tenerife

Beyond the city there's a whole world of outdoor activities to get involved in. One of the biggest draws to the island is the hiking, particularly the scenic footpaths that snake up the Parque Nacional de las Canadas del Teide. Hiking not your thing? Fear not. If you get your mask and flippers ready, you can dive down to find a whole world of colorful marine life. Alternatively, drop into one of the many water sports outfits in town, to rent a paddleboard, kayak or jet ski and hit the calm oceans for some watery fun.

Weather

Summer and winter are busiest In Tenerife

The greatest number of travelers visit Tenerife in summer, when the temperature sky-rockets or the winter season when they escape the cold weather back home. This increase in numbers pushes the prices up, so if you're looking to score a bargain on a Santa Cruz de Tenerife vacation rental, try visiting in either spring or fall. If you catch it right, the weather can still be warm enough to hang out on the beach and there are far fewer people taking up precious room on the sand or in the island's restaurants.

Natural features

Tenerife: a wildlife spotting gem in the Atlantic

For wildlife lovers, Tenerife is a hidden gem. Out of all the islands that make up the chain in the Atlantic Ocean, the Canary Islands have the largest number of flora and fauna, including a staggering 1,700 species of plant life, many of which are endemic. One of the best places to start when you stay in a Santa Cruz de Tenerife vacation rental is the ocean. Here, you'll find pods of bottlenose dolphins, colorful parrotfish and even pilot whales which migrate into the calm waters to mate and raise their young. Back on land, look out of Tenerife geckos and magnificent ospreys.
