I spent two weeks in Tenerife last year in December. This volcanogenic island belongs to Spain, and is the biggest of Canary Islands. It lies in the great reaches of Atlantic ocean near coast of Africa and is surrounded by ridges. In the centre of Tenerife overlooks giant volcano called “Canadas del Teide”. That has 20 kilometre diameter and is 3718 meter height. All Teides park full rocks of crater, which sometimes remind statues or figures. Uphill “Canadas del Teide” grow glorious pines. These have long 20 centimetre thorns. The pines are really extraordinary, they grows on rocks, and their long thorns absorb water from clouds. Afterwards water access ground and is used in all island. We stayed in small town Los Americos, and were delivered in hotel Iberostar Lasdalias (4 stairs) with exited view to ocean. Hotel was good with sufficiently many amusements for children and adults. In the town settle many souvenirs shops and coffee bars located near the coast. Everywhere is very tidy, no mess. Streets, parks and beach are ordered, everywhere blow flower, flourish bushes and other exotic plants, like in spring. I found that wine there was very cheap. It is possible to buy 0,7 millilitre wine only for one euro. We led good time wandering around the island and relaxing in hotel on the pool, …sometimes on the beach. All time weather was mild, days were sunny. Over all the time I visited Teide volcano, Garachiko town (this once was fisherman town but later were poured by lava) Maska gap, La gomera island, supervised exited show of whale Orka in Zoro park, admired performance of eagles in Jungle park.
