Learn a few simple phrases in Spanish in order to show respect for the traditions and culture of Tenerife. The locals will definitely appreciate your efforts!
There are no strict requirements for clothes, but you may not be allowed to enter the restaurants in shorts.
If you want to enjoy authentic Canarian cuisine, choose the restaurants that are located far away from popular tourist spots.
Follow the basic safety rules: keep your documents in a hotel safe and don’t bring a lot of cash. On the beach, it would be better not to leave your belongings unattended.
In restaurants and bars, it is customary to leave a tip of 5-10%.

For our youngest son, a child seat was installed in the car. We forgot to indicate it when booking but easily changed the order by contacting the manager via e-mail. On driver’s advice, we had a snack in LosCastilos – a local cafe with Canarian cuisine.
Sightseeing rides are usually too tedious - we decided to book it just for 4 hours. But the ride turned out to be so exciting and enjoyable that we prolonged it for another 2 hours. we really wanted to visit Lago-Martianes park
At the appointed time, a comfortable good car arrived at the hotel. The driver was a pro – he drove very carefully along the serpentine. My wife even didn't get carsick. In several hours, he showed us the most beautiful places of the island and told us in detail about each attraction. We made three unplanned stops to admire nature and take pics. Alas, because of the sun glare, we couldn't take photos from the car😀 That was one of favorite days of our whole trip!! 👍🏻
