Last Minute Holidays In Tenerife Guide
A Guide To Last Minute Tenerife
With year round flights from across the UK, and a huge range of hotels across the island, last minute holidays to Tenerife can be an excellent way to save money. Although being one of the most popular Canary Islands, booking early can sometimes be a better option to avoid disappointment.
Whether you're looking at leaving tomorrow, in the next 24 hours, or within the next week or two, you'll generally find sunny weather year-round, making it an ideal destination for a last minute getaway in the sunshine, often better weather than mainland Spain.
Tour operators like Jet2holidays and TUI have some great offers, or you can check companies like loveholidays and On The Beach if you don't mind Ryanair being an option. You'll fly into Tenerife South airport and if you've not had time to book an airport transfer, you can jump in a taxi from outside the terminal building.
Popular Resorts For A Last Minute Holiday
Playa De Las Americas
As one of the largest resorts on the island, Playa de las Americas is a good option for a late bargain break. There are lots of cheap hotels and self catering apartments in the area too, like the Sol Tenerife and the Gara Suites. In fact, being so close to loads of supermarkets, bars and restaurants can be ideal for a self catering holiday. If you like late nights and lively nightlife, this is also the area for you.
The Costa Adeje has some big hotels, with plenty of amenities likes kids clubs, multiple restaurants, swimming pools and extensive entertainment programmes, but they can also be pricier, often being a higher standard than other areas like Los Cristianos and Las Americas. Sometimes these hotels are keen to fill rooms at the last minute, but don't always count on it. Sometimes it can be better to book in advance, paying a low deposit to secure the price. Costa Adeje is also home to some great beaches too.
With more average rainfall and a longer airport transfers, the northern resorts of Playa de la Arena, Puerto de la Cruz and even Santa Cruz de Tenerife, aren't as popular for Brits, but can be a lot cheaper with last minute deals. Just be mindful that, especially from November to February, you might not get as much sunshine as Tenerife south.
Things To Do
It's often better to book things to do in advance to make sure you get on the trip you want, but in Tenerife, you can actually book a lot of things the day before or even on the same day.
If you're looking for things to do at the last minute, Siam Park water park is an exciting day out. It's often better to book ahead of time for the best prices, but you can also buy tickets from attractions and excursions operators throughout the resorts. Your hotel may also be able to help you book tickets. Alternatively you can pay full price at the gate, but as it's one of the most popular water parks in the world, expect a queue when you arrive in the morning.
Amongst the many tours and day trips available in Tenerife, there are quite a few boat trips, heading out to sea to go dolphin and whale watching. These can also be booked in advance, but can be booked when you arrive.
Mount Teide National Park
For something a little more unusual, head up into Mount Teide National Park to visit the incredible lava fields that sit below the volcano. You can even take a cable car up to near the top for spectacular views of the surrounding area.
