Distance

Hi

Can anyone help?

My husband and i are off to Puerto de la Cruz. We are travelling by taxi from Tenerife South airport. Now would it be quicker and cheaper to taxi to los cristianos and grab another taxi onto Puerto de la Cruz. maybe we are mad but looking at the maps it's around 60 miles from the airport to our destination, but 41 miles via los cristianos. how odd can anyone help?

Hi Pamela

Although the journey is longer to do the trip along the east coast it is quicker as it is motorway for most of the tri. To do it via LC is more scenic but will take longer as some of the route is not motorway. Whatever route you choose is not going to be cheap by taxi {I would estimate 120 Euros each way depending on the time you arrive in Tenerife}

I do nott think you will make a saving whatever route you choose it is just the situation of arrivng at Puerto 20/30 mins quicker ding the east coast run

Hope this helps

Sparhawk is quite correct .

In this case the shortest route is not the quickest .

The motorway around the island s east coast takes about 1 hour 20 mins to reach Puerto The other route, is shorter, but takes the equivalent of B roads , and while being more scenic, takes longer .

Hi

Thank you for your real help

I reported the person with the stupid comment.

I thought this site was for genuine help and not stupid comments

Unlike other social network sites.

Oooh Pamela B - I think you have misunderstood Sylla's post!

She is a highly respected DE on this forum and was being jovial rather than stupid! Please do not upset her!
