Arriving in Tenerife

Tenerife South (Reina Sofia), located near to Los Cristianos, and Tenerife North (Los Rodeos), situated in close proximity to La Laguna, accept cheap flights to Tenerife. Both airports offer a range of facilities and services, including Wi-Fi connectivity, shops, bars, and restaurants. Once tourists’ flights to Tenerife have touched down, they can catch a bus to downtown. The buses usually run from between 6 a.m. to 12 midnight.
