Getting to Tenerife (flight information)

There are two airports on the island of Tenerife, one on the north side (Tenerife Norte, TFN, also known as "Aeropuerto de Los Rodeos") and the other one on the south of the island (Tenerife Sur, TFS, also known as "Aeropuerto Reina Sofi­a"). Both airports are at about 2.5 hours flying time from Madrid, and about 3 hours from Barcelona.  To search for either airports use the code TCI.

Most international flights and some domestic flights go to the TFS airport, while most domestic flights go to the TFN airport. Most people travelling on scheduled flights will have to fly via Madrid or Barcelona and then onto the northern airport.

Please book your flights early!. Scheduled flights as well as charter flights from some european countries can be heavily booked at certain times of the year.

Online information about flights arriving at or departing from the spanish airports is obtained in the AENA website.

Puerto de la Cruz is about 26 Km from TFN, and 95 Km from TFS, with a motorway link covering the full journey in both cases. The easiest access is from the northern airport (TFN) along the TF-5 motorway. Puerto de la Cruz is approximately 20 mins away. The TFS airport is more than an hour along the TF-1 and TF-5 motorways. There is a direct bus service to Puerto de la Cruz (line number 343). An alternative to reach Puerto de la Cruz from TFS is to take bus service 111 to Santa Cruz (the capital of the island) and stop over to service 103. Once in Puerto de la Cruz central station, it is best to take a taxi (5 min) to the hotel. 

Getting to your Hotel (local transport)

From Tenerife South Airport (TFS)

From Tenerife North Airport (TFN)

Please check the bus timetables in the local bus company website (TITSA) before travelling to avoid unexpected last minute changes in the scheduling of the services. Buses are painted bright green, and the local name for bus is "guagua" or "autobus".

Note: The bus terminal in Puerto de la Cruz is relatively far from the hotel, so we recommend to take a taxi fo reach the hotel (about 5 €).

Changing money

The most recomendable way to obtain money is by withdrawal from any of the numerous cash-dispensing machines.

There is a bank within the international arrivals lounge at the TFS Airport which operates daily except Sundays and public holidays. If you are travelling through Madrid or Barcelona, the exchange bureau opens there round the clock. However, NO currency exchange facilities are available in TFN Airport.

Many banks are available in Puerto de la Cruz, and open Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 13:00. Credit cards are widely accepted in Spain, in restaurants, hotels, etc.
