Costa Adeje Tenerife holiday guide and tips

Costa Adeje Tenerife holiday guide and tips


In this thing you need to know about
going holiday to the Costa Adeje in Tenerife. If you haven’t booked yet this
is also a great video to see what to expect and if Costa Adeje is actually the
right holiday destination for you or not. Also in this video we’re going to look
at some tips that can save you lots of money, a few small things to watch out
for and the a lot of tips that will make your holiday even better. Costa Adeje has
many different beaches Puerto de Colon beach for me is the least nice it’s
kinda small and very often crowded but I can see the appeal for families with
small children as it is close to many hotels and has everything close by that
you might need for a beach holiday with the kids and small soft waves sheltered
from the ocean. Playa de Torviscas and Playa Fanabe think are much
nicer they also are the bigger beaches in this area with some more upscale sunloungers, Balinese beds and beach clubs. You will find many snack places next to
the beach as well as some things for the kids like a mini golf area and even a
daycare and what I would call like a play care center. My favourite beach in
this area is the Playa del Duque a nice, little and more upscale feeling beach
with some of the most soft and white sand in the area and also closest to
some of the more expensive hotels in this area. So in the Costa Adeje, in general you will
find some of the nicest biggest and most modern and newest hotels out there. I’m
not gonna cover this in this video because it would make it too long
however if you are about to book your hotel but still quickly want a second
opinion know that I visited many of these hotels and you can always write me
a quick email on this email address and I will be glad to figure out with you if
this is really the right hotel for you or not. If you want to go clubbing or partying
in the Costa Adeje you will find some bars that will be open till late but not many
clubs. For the real clubbing and partying nightlife take a walk or a taxi to Playa de Las Americas just next door, especially the Veronica’s area that is
the most active clubbing and nightlife in Tenerife. So one of these things you
should definitely do when you’re staying in the Costa Adeje
is to go to the Siam Waterpark. It’s really closeby and also they have a free bus
service going all over the coast the Costa Adeje. So they come and pick you up
for free. It’s claimed to be one of the best water parks in the world but I
don’t know this but I’ve been to a lot of water parks in Spain and this is
definitely the nicest one I’ve been to. There’s also an other water park I would
not go there, it’s cheaper but it’s a whole different experience. I would say
pay a couple of euros more and go to the Siam Water Park, it’s gonna be a unique
experience great for the entire family. I would definitely advise the Siam Water Park. So one of these things you’re always told when you go to Tenerife is
that you have to up Teide and I would say it’s not any more like this.
Now it’s so busy, there’s so many buses. I would not advise it. If you’re going go
for the sunset or go for the night experience. These are really unique it’s
really amazing views and it’s very peaceful and quiet. So I would definitely
advise if you go up Teide, first of all take warm clothing either if you’re
going in the day or the night time because it can get very cold and either
do like the sunset or the nighttime experience, it’s really amazing. One of
the things I would definitely advise when you go to the Costa Adeje that is
to get a rental car at the airport preferably or in your resort. It’s really
cheap, you can get one for 10 or 15 euros a day if you rent it for an entire
week and this is fully all inclusive so all the insurance like zero access is included. So
one of the reasons I would advise this is especially in the Costa Adeje it can
be quite much uphill that your hotel or your accommodation is. A lot of people
don’t understand this before going there but a lot of the hotels are
quite uphill so if you have a car it’s really easy. Also to go to the bigger
supermarkets, so you can do cheaper shopping or if you want to go
to the other side of the island to see some of the parts there, or the beaches
there, or if you want to drive up Teide… for all of these reasons it’s really
gonna pay off. It’s a really good investment to rent the car for like 10
or 15 euros a day. If you want to rent a car at the Costa Adeje of at the airport you can find all the companies I used on my website www,.checkedholidays.com/cars . Restaurants you will find all over the Costa Adeje and there is a really large choice. With Playa de las Americas just next door and within walking distance, you have an even larger choice
of restaurants. In both these areas, when going to any restaurant are just having
a drink watch out for the upselling, the wrong bill or any extra charges. I have
been traveling all over Spain to hundreds of destinations but in the
Costa Adeje and Playa de las Americas this was the more prolific I have
encountered. Many dishes are advertised very cheap outside but then are served
with special sauces or something without you asking that are billed
separately, in some places the food is cheap but then the drinks are extremely
expensive to compensate and one time while having a coffee I was in a hurry
and I wanted to pay so I wanted to pay directly with the waiter to avoid any
waiting and he wanted to charge me 3 euro 50 cents when I said this is kind
of insane for this place and wanted to see a bill it was only 2 euro 15.
Still the exact same coffee or even better one in Santa Cruz the capital is
only about 1 euro or so. So do be aware of these scammy
type practices. So there’s also three quick things I
want to give you a little bit more of his information and a warning about when
going to the Costa Adeje. This is when traveling in the Costa Adeje you might find a lot of fliers on the street. Just stay away from these.
Most of the time they involve some kind of excursion that is really cheap
but they don’t say you, or sometimes they do mention it very slightly, is that
you will have to go on an sales presentation for like 1 or 2 or 3 hours
where they try to sell you lots of stuff. So stay away from this. The same also
counts for when people approach you on the street and give you a lottery ticket and
suddenly you win something. This is most of the time that you are going
to a timeshare sales presentation so. So stay away from these things, you
don’t have to be dealing with any of this. so when you go to the beach in the Costa Adeje pretty much, at least once on your holiday but most
likely more often, is that you’re going to be approached by people who offer you
free fruit but as soon as you accept it you have either taken too much or you
were supposed to just look at it if you wanted it or anything like this. As soon as
you accept it basically you now owe them money stay away from these kind of things. You don’t have to be dealing
with it. If you are offered any free fruit or any free food just don’t accept it. The Canary Islands and Tenerife in general for many years have this
reputation of having cheap electronics. And this is kind of true but what is
also true that the difference really ain’t that much. It’s all about
sales tax. The sales tax is a little bit lower but really it doesn’t make so much
of a difference. The reason you can find really good deals on Tenerife is because
there’s lots of like kind of sh*tty companies out there who will either sell
you fake brands, or they will play tricks on your credit card, or they will upsell
you things, or get you through this whole kind of confusing sales thing and you
end up buying more than you need. Just don’t deal with it, stay away from any
electronic shops in Tenerife, buy it at home where you have a proper two-year
guarantee at least if you’re from one of the European Union countries you wil have a two-year guarantee which you may or may not get on the things you buy in
Tenerife depending on the shop you buy it in. So do
know that Tenerife is a very nice place but in all my videos I’d like to inform
about the good and the bad things with the end goal of giving a better holiday.

to the Costa Adeje. Well this depends a little bit, but most of the
time people will travel to the South Airport. There’s also the North Airport
on Tenerife, where you depending on the country you’re traveling from, you might
find cheaper flights going there so both are an option. Do know the North is a
little bit further driving so you will pay a little bit more on transport
as well. But the one in the south is normally the closest one so in this case
I’m going to talk about traveling from the South. A bus traveling from the South
Airport will normally cost four euros and we’ll get you there in 30 minutes.
But do know that this is just to the main bus stop. A lot of the hotels are
far away from the main bus stop, so I would definitely not advise this because
you will have to do a lot of walking or take another bus. A better option I
think, is to take a shuttle bus. They will actually drop you off at your reception.
These are five euros, so just one euro more and normally the driving time is
more or less the same. I would especially advise this if you’re traveling to Costa Adeje with small children or people who are not that good at walking.
So do also know that the taxi is also an option at 25 euros in the daytime or 32
euros in the night time or the weekend. The bus ticket you can just buy on the
bus it’s very easy but the shuttles you have to book before online because
there’s no option to book them in the airport. The taxis I would advise
them to book online, not to be stuck in a traffic jam and just have the meter run
up, so you have a locked-in price. If you book online, all the companies I used
while traveling to Tenerife and when I travel to Tenerife still use you can
find on my website Checkedholidays.com/links . So when should you be visiting the Costa
Adeje? Well know that this area basically has two different types of climates. One
is wintertime, it’s November December January February March and people in
Europe have this understanding that this is the best weather they have on Tenerife
but it’s not true, it is still great weather however. It’s one of the only
places in Europe where you can find this great weather in these days and this is
also why it is that popular. The average temperature here is going to be a high
of 21 degrees and the low of 15 degrees but do know that there’s gonna be plenty
of days where it’s going to be much hotter than that as well. Rain there’s
only gonna be five days a month so really not that much. It’s about one day
a week. And the sea temperature is 19 degrees, so not really warm but plenty
good for taking a dip. So when are the hottest summer months in the Costa Adeje? Well these are May, June, July, August and September. These are typical
summer beach holiday months. The average temperature is gonna be on the high 25
degrees and on the low 19 degrees. So most of the
time is gonna be much hotter than this as well you’re pretty much guaranteed
not to see any rain if you’re only coming for a week or two weeks because
it’s only gonna rain one day a month and sea temperature is going to be around 22
degrees which normally for most people is a plenty nice temperature to take
some swims. So two exceptions to the rule are basically April and October.
This isn’t quite
winter and this isn’t quite summer, it’s somewhere in between.
Together with March and November normally you can find in these four
months March, April, October, November the best deals on Tenerife. So
if you’re looking at traveling on a budget, have a look specifically at these
months as long as you’re traveling outside of the Easter or other holidays
you can find the best deals here. If you are not 100% sure if this i the right holiday
