10 Things to Do in Granadilla de Abona That You Shouldn't Miss

August 17, 2017 Jacquiline Darosa

Granadilla de Abona is a municipality of Tenerife, located in the south of the island, occupying an area of 155 square kilometers. Its population in 2013 was 43,608. In recent years, the population has greatly increased due to an influx of immigrants, many of them illegal, from Western Sahara, Colombia, Cuba, and other African and Latin American countries.

Benjamin was a client friendly, patient, safety-conscious guide who led 9 of our family members from age 16 to 56 with half the group in their 20's. The views inside the Canyons were incredible, the adventure was spectacular. The hike back was along some ledges not for the faint of heart. Overall wonderful day, a highlight of our visit.

Organised to dive with Amarilla Divers before we got to Tenerife by doing some research and wasn't disappointed.
I spoke to Mary to book the trip and dive dates, she was lovely to deal with and communication was excellent. Nothing seemed to be a problem. She even organised a boat dive when i asked even though it's not advertised on the website.
Neil was always on time to pick us up every morning. Safety is key with Neil which I like because things can go wrong if things get missed.
I really enjoyed diving with Amarilla Divers, my only slight criticism is that it took me 3 days to get Neil to smile.
Great dive center, great people and I would dive with them again on a heart beat.
Thanks for some really great dives.

Highly recommended, just reached my 40 dives today and completed deep diving certification, look no more, the two instructors are amazing, keep you safe (not all centers make sure of that and it is a shame) and ensure you have a great fun at all time by making you dive in greatest spots.

This is a little town south of the airport - plenty of relaxed bars restaurants and coffee shops.
Non commercial with friendly locals. Not much in way of large stores or entertainment just a lovely feel to the area.
The car hire company in the small side st were great, and very flexible.

Vila Flor

Reviewed By eleanola - Scotland, United Kingdom

Been to Tenerife countless times over the past 30 years, but never been to Vila Flor before, as it is rather out of the way.
My 2010 AA guidebook said it was full of 'flowers everywhere: in dooryards, along the top of walls and in little plots along Calle Santa Catalina', and that they also grow grapes and potatoes - it wasn't, in fact there were fewer flowers there than just about anywhere else on the whole island.
There were empty terraces on the hillsides - perhaps they grow flowers there, but no sign of anything at all growing in them in August.
We drove beyond town first of all, looking for the Ermita de San Roque, from which there is a viewpoint, but we didn't find it.
We did stop to photograph the Pino Gordo, which is a very wide tree, but there is not a good vantage point, to see it well. There are, of course, many lovely Canarian Pines on the hillsides as you drive.
Back down at Vila Flor, there are gates into a free gravel car park, just next to the Iglesia de San Pedro, and a mansion opposite it. (Curiously, there is a climbing wall in the car park.)
It was late Sunday morning, and the town was very quiet, but we had a good stroll around, looking for the promised flowers! It is quite an attractive little town but, other than the church, we found nothing of interest, except an excellent little bar called Bar de Siempre, where we enjoyed coffee and Flan.
Including our coffee stop, we spent 31 minutes in Vila Flor.
I wouldn't bother going again, but if you do, I would suggest a Sunday in August is probably not the best time.

Siam Park

Siam Park, Tenerife’s water kingdom is already established as the best water park in the world. Set against a backdrop of spectacular Thai architecture, with everything from meandering rivers to free-fall slides, this is the setting for your own epic adventure. Blissful relaxation or adrenaline-pumping thrills? It’s your choice – just dive in!

Reviewed By Miguel C

We were 7 people; 4 adults and 3 teenagers age 12-13. It was great fun, with great water slides from less to more adventures. We also had a nice meal at one of the restaurants and it was good for quality for the value.
An important downside is the amount of mix rubbish that is wasted without recycling. There were no special bins to separate waste...no even for simple things like plastic bottles and cans.

Stopped here after visiting Mt Teide and wandered about among the rocks for about an hour. Quite popular with the coach tours but most don’t wander far from the bus. Very photogenic stones and excellent views of the Caldera and the surrounding volcanic peaks and features.

Reviewed By Daniel S - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

We had a bad experience with before the tour. We asked the ticket to buy but we arrived late anyway decided to have something in the cafeteria.
While we were sitting on the table we just realized that my wallet was missing from my mom bag.
Before 10 minutes it was there. I asked the team to help to check the CCTV but they refuse me and said call the center in Tenerife. After I called Tenerife center they pointed back to the cable car selling ticket palace in the cafeteria. So ALL mess. I don't recommend only if you carry a safe with you.
By the way there was a British couple who made complain with me their whole luggage and belongings was taken from their car...

If you're looking for a ranch that values safety and their horses, this is a great place. I had booked a 2 hr advanced ride, but had underestimated how long it had been since I had ridden English style, so I was downgraded to a beginner ride which was only offered in 1 hr. I was more disappointed by the change in time from 2 hrs to 1hr than from advanced to beginners (safety is the most important thing).
My real issue is with the ride itself. I love to travel and like a guide the tells you a lot about the area. There wasn't much of that, so I asked a lot of questions instead. I felt like I was more a nuisance than anything else, especially when during the scant 1 hr ride, my guide (the owner) spent much of his time taking phone calls. I looked forward to an education and some scenic pictures. What I got was a strictly no nonsense guide who was constantly on his phone and didn't seem to consider pausing at any point for any of us to take pictures. The one good this that came from my ride was a dinner recommendation that offered me a chance to get those pics I wanted.
The ride ended with carrots for the horses, which is very sweet, and in the end, I was refunded 75% of the money I should have gotten, losing a 3x inflated fee because I had paid with PayPal.
In the end? A nice stable, but overrated trail ride on an island with so much to see and do.
