Best transportation for a week?

Hi! I have a bunch of questions but the first is how to get to our hotel from Tenerife Norte airport! We are staying at Mare Nostrum resort and titsa's website indicates that it would require 3 buses! With a BABY and luggage that is not an option. How much would a cab be? Are we likely to want to rent a car while we are on the island for a week? We intend to do lots of hiking and walking to explore things.

Hi Debbie

In that situation I would not mess around, go for a taxi, OK it is not going to be cheap 90/120 Euros each way {or rent a car for the week and drive to the south}

I think if I were you I would get the taxi from the airport to the south then once you are settled in hire a car for trips out and if you are planning hiking talk to Cyberhiker on this forum as he can advise as to best walks ect.

Hope this helps

One bus from Tenerife north takes you straight to the bus station in P.D.L.A and a taxi from there to your hotel will only be a few euros , a taxi will cost in excess of 100 euros, I personally would never consider using a car in Tenerife as the bus service is second to none and very cheap when used in conjunction with a bono bus pass , hope this helps and enjoy yor holiday

Hi, bus 342 leaves Las Americas at 9.15 for the cable car station. The only bus back leaves at 15.15.

We always use the local buses, they are very good value for money with a BONO discount card, run on time and very clean. You can travel to all parts of the island.

Take care at Mt. Teide, as the air is very thin, you, or your baby can burn in the sun very quickly, it can also be cold.

I too think that the buses are absolutely fantastic on Tenerife. However, with a baby and planning to go hiking and walking it would be ludicrous to do anything other than hire a car. In which case you should hire it from the North Airport as I can see no reason for getting a taxi at over 100 euros to the south and then hiring a car. I (and lots of other people would recommend this company, Autoreisen) www.arcarhire.com/car-hire/car-hire.php
