  • I visited Orotava in January, a most charming town, with colonial-style residences is located above Puerto de La Cruz. You can visit on foot from the bus stop next to the info point (main square). walk you reach the most characteristic part the famous House of the balconies visited by tourists. Worth a visit, also offers a nice view over the Valley.

  • I personally recommend the viewpoint of Humboltd. Parking is available and is worth visiting to admire our father Teide

  • We must not be afraid of hairpins ... There's plenty to arrivare...ma roads are nice and at least end March early April with little traffic-accesible with many sights ... depending on the location from which you arrive. Varied vegetation and lush (always in the period said!) and then the requisite stop for a visit to the town: longer or shorter depending on the weather and tastes ... recommended at least a couple of hours, including a visit to the Casa de los Balcones.
