Tripadvisor has loads of info, very good site which relies on everybody contributing. Have a nice holiday

Most of the places are nice. Just stay away from scratch card people. I recommend the bars and cafes along the beach at playa fanabe, espcially otellos (garlic chicken). Yum.

people on the street give you them, your garenteed to win something big. They take you to a time share place and try to make you buy.

Stay away from the blokes offering sun glasses and watches. They annoyed the crap out of me during my stay but I guess you get used to them. They peddle the beach by day, then outside all the shops and restaurants at night.

Apart from that, you'll have an awesome time! Siam park and the boat trips to Los Gigantes are great!

Day time is fine!

Watch your pockets at night and learn to be rude to people pestering you to enter bars or sell you stuff at night time!

just one more question as i went to turkey last year and you had to barter on prices is it the same here?

i got back from tenerife in april the scratch card people werent there but the looky looky men were (sunglasses sellers) also asked us if we wanted to buy some cocaine :O definately go to siam park

Siam Park, Mount Teide, And Los Gigantes are alll Good. I am going to Tenerife again In August.

would never dream of going to playa again. the amount of hassle you get walking along the prom from chavs selling scratchies, african immigrants selling t-shirts, fake gold etc was so annoying.

I'm off to Costa Adeje in a few weeks, cant wait

I'd take some of the info on trip advisor with a huge pinch of salt, its not that accurate. Especially if the reviews are made by american tourists.

Whats that Sea World place in Tenerife called - and is it any good ?

[COLOR="Blue"]does anybody know how much a taxi is from pdla or is it cheaper to book a trip with bus there including the entrance fee[/COLOR]

We were there a year ago this month - and had a great time. We bought all our tickets for the parks etc in Los Cristianos (is that spelt right!) as much cheaper - your hotel will try flog u these tickets making out they are saving u loads of money but they are not.

I actually had one of the best days ever at that Siam Park - was absolutely fantastic and loads of free buses run picking you up and taking u to the park - and back again. Never had so many wedges in my life haha! But went on everything. If your like me - and a big scardey cat, just grin and bare it as you will have so much fun on them rides! Go early though as by lunch time the park is heaving

We also went parascending at Los Cristianos, was quite pricey for the two of (going up together). Think the cost was 80 euros for the two of us but that included a ride on that mental banana boat!!!

We loved it......but yes like a lot of posters have said, the street pedlars are so insistent, and one even followed us for a good 20 mins cause my plonker of a husband stopped to have a look:lol:

You will have fantastic weather,, but its not as cheap as it used to be, but then not many places are:thumbsup:

Hi Chris, we just happened tobe at Los Cristionos that day and the guys selling the tickets were much cheaper. There are plenty of buses going to Siam Park - loads, so dont worry about a bus not showing up!!
