Top 10 Things to do Good for a Rainy Day in Tenerife, Canary Islands

October 1, 2021 Tambra Mccollister

Tribal Terenife still shows influence from the aboriginal Gaunches people. Visitors clamber to conquer Mount Teide (Spain’s tallest peak) and to stretch out on the sands of Los Gigantes. Squawk hello to the playful parrots of Loro Park, or brave the petrifying drive to beautiful Masca Valley. For a true taste of Terenife, sample fresh farmhouse cheese and local bananas. A piece of delicate calado canario lace makes a special souvenir.

Cueva del Viento

The longest lavatunnel i all of Europe, with more than 18 km now explored. A vulcanic tunnel that now has caused scientific interest, because of the cocroach born without eyes. An absoultely amazing experience to get a guided tour into this underground vulcanic world. Highly recommended for those who want to experience something different in this beautiful island.

You have to prebook your place on this trip prior to going, they only allow 16 people a time into the cave. The tour was fantastic and very well organised, our tour guide was very knowledgable, we had two young children in our group and he made it fun and interesting for them as well the adults. There is a short 20 minute walk to the cave through beautiful woodland, not too strenuous. I would highly recommend.

We went to see Cristina De Vera exhibition which was a kind of pointillism style - I liked the two landscape paintings of Toledo best. Other unusual paintings on display. Building had amazing wooden floors and ceilings. Free after 5 on Friday afternoons.

Reviewed By Pasaatituuli - Helsinki, Finland

Thanks to a previous review we came for a visit and I have to admit that we enjoyed everything we were able to see and learn. This place is not well known but it should be due the upmost level of information they present here. One learn to know a lot of flora and fauna (close to my heart) of the island, more about volcanic activity etc. One of the best booths were the one giving a 3-D experience of the nature. For families with small children there could be some hands-on exhibits, but still as it is right now it is highly recommended.

The visit to Fincas Las Margaritas truly exceeeded our expectations. We arrived at 11 and we went throught the self-guide tour. Mid-way, one of the workers in the farm indicated to us that shall we give her few minutes to finish her explanation to a small group she was talking to she will be able to assist us. The lady was incredible, very insightful and you could really tell that she loved sharing her knowledge. We were also impressed with all the languages she could speak: French, English, portugueses and obviously Spanish. I am a French , Spanish and English speaker and given that my husband only speaks Polish and English we opted for English. She explained to us the fact that bananas actually come from an herb, how the banana grow. The exchange was not limited to how bananas grow , she shared few anecdotes from her grand-father who used to gro bananas and about the culture of canarian people. It was a truly enjoyable conversation that made the visit truly memorable. We got also a sense of the philosophy of the Fincas they truly care about growing quality bananas. We culd go within the fields explore, they were also panels with information in many languages . At the end of the visit we got a degustation of gofia a canrian speciality, canarian white whine and mojo. All was delicious and available to buy. The gentleman was very kind and gave us few bananas. Few things to note : you can pay for the entrance and for the goods by card which was a nice surprise. Also we really like the food so we asked if it is possible to come just to go to the small shop and the gentleman told us you only pay for the 1st visit so we could come back any time. It was very educational visit, we truly learnt something and the people really made it special. Volveremos!

Passing by Finca Canarias we were attracted by its ecological plantation so that the day after we stopped by. Despite covid, it was open and still offering visits to (the few) visitors. Elisa immediately welcomed us and led us to a super interesting visit through the outside aloe vera fields, explaning all the details about aloe cultivation as well as other typical plants and flowers of Tenerife. She also showed us a beautiful greenhouse replicating the diversity of plants growing in Tenerife, including ananas plants (never seen before!), banana plants and many others. We then assisted to the process of extracting the juice from aloe vera leaves and and we tried it directly on our skin!! We learnt so many interesting aspects about this extraordinary plant and its plantation! They also have a super well furnished shop where they sell their orgànic products. I find them just great, so their quality is totally worth the price! Also, thanks to our purchase, we had two products as gifts - which was much appreciated :) Elisa really took the time to explain the details of every product we asked her about and guided us with much care. Even if there were 2 other customers she made sure she was done with us before moving on to them. Besides, she is really nice and friendly! Overall, better not to leave Tenerife without having stopped by!

Beautiful basilica, albeit only about 80 years old, but the story and history of the statue and its interaction with the Guanches (the original indigenous people of the Canaries) is fascinating. A fine line of modern statues adorns the sea wall.

We went for the wine & fell in love with the food. From the assortment of fresh breads & jams to our scrambled eggs with jamón Serrano overlooking the vineyards & the Atlantic Ocean...this is the brunch of your dreams. The menu offers brunch options paired with your choice of the local wines.???????? If possible, make a reservation—we just happened to get lucky.
