Recommendations and information:

What to wear– Tenerife is mostly sunny , the temperature during the winter is 23 degrees Celsius usually during the day (in the shadow). During the night the temperature drops to about 16-18 degrees and it can get chilly so make sure you bring some warm clothes also. On the mountain (the island`s highest peak is 3718m) it can be very cold (it drops to 0 sometimes) so it`s good to have something warm to wear if we take a trip there. The water temperature varies between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius in the winter. It can get quite windy sometimes, but it barely rains.

What to bring: There is nothing you can`t find on the island. So everything can be bought or rented here.
