A POTPOURRI OF EXPERIENCES

Tenerife has moved on. This stunning island has shed its old image to reveal a more natural side, and is now revelling in its newfound status as the destination that’s got it all – carnival celebrations, unique history and natural wonders to highlight a few.

If you still enjoy your sun and sangria in equal measure, it will always be a great place to visit; yet when you can climb the majestic Mount Teide, go whale watching in the Atlantic, or visit Siam Park (one of the world’s most spectacular water attractions), it’s little wonder Tenerife is regarded as the land of a thousand experiences.

Food & Drink in Tenerife

Get ready for a taste sensation, Canarian style. As you would expect, the gastronomy in Tenerife has a big Spanish influence yet in the melting pot you will taste a hint of African and Latin.

A traditional Canarian dish is papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) or sometimes simply referred to as ´Canarian potatoes`. Cooked in salt with their skins still on, they are simple and flavoursome when served and dipped in mojos (sauces). Fish lovers will be in paradise on Tenerife thanks to the abundance of great seafood and fresh fish.

Fresh fruit is also a key part of the Canarian diet – stocks of bananas, papayas, strawberries and mangos are in good supply and frequently go into the many drinks on offer. After your meal, Ron Miel, a local beverage of sweet honey rum, is typically served.
