Tenerife has always been such a beautiful place on my list to visit. I would especially enjoy seeing the Dragon tree! I love anything to do with old trees and being 1000, that would complete my dream to visit this place. It truly looks like a photographer's dream with such beautiful scenery.

Thanks a lot Janine. Yes you are absolutely right, Tenerife has so many photogenic places. Especially the 100 year old tree is a very popular photo motive :)

This place looks beautiful! I hadn't even heard of it before I don't think. I especially like the pic of Bodegon Plaza - it looks like the perfect spot to grab lunch. Adding this to my list!

Thanks a lot Christie. You are absolutely right, Tenerife is beautiful. Many just visit the south coast for beach& sun but the north coast holds some hidden gems like Garachico :)

Tenerife... oh I've had this on my bucket list for a very long time. It is beautiful as can be. I love that there is also a laid back vibe to it so you can enjoy and relax!

I'd love to visit Tenerife. I have a friend who used to live there (before I knew her) and she always told great stories from her time there. It looks beautiful too. Even with the gloomy weather :)

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Thanks a lot Kristine. I can imagine why she only has good stories to be told ;) People are so kind, the food is amazing, infinite hiking options, and the weather is (almost) always sunny :)

Even with the overcast weather, it still looks beautiful here. I too am curious about that wooden sculpture of a giant lizard that may or may not be about to attack the plaza!
You write your articles in English and Spanish too, that's dedication!

Thanks a lot :) I loooved the wooden lizard on the plaza. it was some kind of urban art project. a really nice contrast with the plaza in colonial style. do you speak spanish as well?

C.J. Haughey • 3 years ago

It looks awesome, love dfscovering random art like that while travelling!
Ah, unfortunately not yet. I'm for South America in October though so I have my training wheels on with duolingo! :)

That dragon tree is awesome! What a cool spot. I am loving those balconies and natural swimming pools.

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Thanks a lot Jennifer. The dragon tree is one of the major attractions of Tenerife

I am very intrigued by the dragon tree. What does dragon sap taste like? Can you compare it to anything?

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Thanks a lot Suzanne. It tasted a bit like resin... if you ever tried that :) They said that it is really healthy.

It never rained in Tenerife island for two months? Wow, that is a long time. Swimming in the natural pools in Garachico sounds amazing on a nice day of course without the rain :-) I love road trips especially to new places though sounds like yours was a bit of an adventure :-)

Paulina On the road • 3 years ago

Thanks a lot Mel. Yes, for me as well, being from a rather rainy country (Luxembourg) it was rather strange to see no clouds during 2 months haha
