Dreaming and living Tenerife
Tenerife is one of the eight Canary Islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the favorite destinations of both Europeans and the entire world. More than five million tourists choose it as a destination for their vacations, and some of them fall in love so much that they end up investing in a second home. But why live in it, what makes it so attractive? Is it truly a dream come true? You can see your options in the Tenerife 100% life portal, full of good recommendations.
The truth is that it has always made mankind dream. It is very easy to relate it, together with its island sisters, with legends that speak of noble places, promised lands, mysterious and captivating passages, magical or magnetic. And if you are one of the most skeptical, you will find its characteristics (like the climate or the goodness of its people) too irresistible to be ignored.
Tenerife: beauty and mystery
Tenerife has been related with Atlantis legends; or the continent lost because of its location. It has been associated with the Champs Elysees (referring to its good climate). Also with the Island of San Borondón; the monk Saint Brendan (in which the paradise of the blessed is described), the Non Trubada, the Inaccessible (speaking of a land lost in the mist, never found), the Fortunate Islands or the Garden of the Hespérides) … How much mystical quality could be presumed! Our Canary Islands have been involved in this aura of mystery and beauty. But let’s talk about its real characteristics, which are much more charming.
It is the largest island compared to its neighbors in the archipelago, as well as the most populated in Spain. You can live many different experiences in it, as this Tourism website remembers. From enjoying its particular nature, its wonderful skies, visiting the Teide, the beaches, tasting its food, enjoying its parties (the Santa Cruz Carnival is one of the best in the world), its shopping options, its golf courses or its rhythm. Everything is part of the same captivating show! In its diversity, the island has been recognized for various reasons. UNESCO has designated Tenerife as a World Heritage Site: the historic center of La Laguna and the Teide National Park. Among other recognitions by UNESCO is that of the Biosphere Reserve, assigned to the Anaga Massif for its endemic and natural wealth.

Of the good climate: the north and the south
The average temperature of Tenerife is 22º. The promise of being able to sunbathe at any time of the year and place is there.

They may become a little cold. It is also where the Guachinches abound, which are establishments of homemade Canarian food. They tend to be cozy, each one has its own style, but they all have a lot of flavor!
