You don't need to pay a huge amount to get to Mt.Teide. There is one local bus from Puerto Cruz in the North and one from the South. We caught the bus from Puerto at 9.15am in the morning and got off at the first stop in the National Pk. at El Portillo 50 minutes later - cost 7 Euro return! From the cafe, walk up the road 100 metres to the visitor centre where you can get information about walks. Just make sure you are back for the only bus back that sets off from the furthest stop, the Parador at 4pm - reaches El Portillo at around 4.20pm. Going up,you can stay on the bus to the stop for the cable car (cable car ride costs 25 Euro) or stay on the bus to the end of the line, the Parador and Visitor Centre where again you will be able to get info about the various walks and hiking routes. Make sure you have enough water and suitable gear. The return journey to the Parador and back to Puerto costs around 10 Euro 60cents. I think there are some free guided walks from there. The scenery is stunning.
