Reasons to visit Tenerife
An island of volcanic descent, you won’t be able to miss the inspiring peak of Mount Teide. It’s the third largest volcano in the world and the highest point in Spain, including the entire mainland. Even the journey toward this giant is wonderful and once you reach the top, the never ending views will take your breath away.
Visit Los Gigantes, also referred to as the cliffs of the giants. Look in awe at the remarkable sheer cliff faces at a height of 800m in places. The journey should take around 45 minutes; why not take a boat trip out to view them in their entirety.
Los Cristianos is another exciting area to visit. There’s plenty of hustle and bustle with a busy beach and plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs yet once a fishing village, it still retains its traditional charm. Siam Park is a really fun attraction to enjoy here with wave machines, flumes, a 100ft high slide an aquarium. The neighbouring resort of Playa de las Americas is much busier and more commercial but still worth a visit.

"The whole process was very simple. There are so many horror stories involving car rentals abroad and with this service I encountered no problems whatsoever. Next time I'm abroad I shall use this service again. The lady at the Hertz counter even recommended a better car to take than the one I chose on-line for the same price. Very satisfied customer."
