Tenerife is an island where you can breathe happiness, just like in the rest of the Canary Islands. Staying only a few days in Tenerife will be enough to prove it.
But what makes Tenerife and the Canary Islands such a special place with a quality of life so high? Below we show you the main factors.
The people of Tenerife
One of the fundamental factors that makes Tenerife a place with such a good quality of life, is its people.
The people of Tenerife are characterized by being very affectionate with everyone, including with strangers. It is quite common for older people to treat the younger ones with the term “mi niño” or “mi niña”, which means “my child”, treating you as if you were like their child.
If you come from certain places where the treatment is often distant until people do not know each other better, you may be shocked by this attitude and manner of speaking. Or even some people may get annoyed. In any case, please think that it is simply the way for people fromTenerife to be pleasant and make people happy. It is the natural way in which people are usually treated here.
Close contact with any person is the norm, common in all the Canary Islands, but especially in the smaller towns. This is influenced perhaps by a greater contact with the nature and very low levels of stress.
Taking things easy
If you come from a big city, you should be warned in advance to know that we here take things much more calm.
This is something that you can see in certain situations and depending on the people you meet on your trip, maybe driving or queuing in a small supermarket. Although this can cause you to become impatient, being accustomed to the speed with which you live in other parts of the world is also a positive thing. People here, as a rule, like to take things more patiently, and not be so watchful of the clock.
The weather is probably the best known factor of the Canary Islands and Tenerife why the quality of life here is so high.
In Tenerife we are accustomed to live in a constant spring, since both in winter as in summer and in the intermediate stations, we usually have very pleasant temperatures 365 days a year. This does not mean that we wont have from time to time a week where the cold makes more presence, such as when the Teide is snowy, or perhaps some heat wave, with very high temperatures, but this are usually exceptions.

The proximity of the beaches
In any place on the island where you are, you will be able to access some quality beach in less than half an hour (unless you are visiting Teide National Park, there it will take you an hour).
This, combined with the fact that almost every day of the year we enjoy pleasant temperatures, makes possible that a bath in the sea is possible almost any time we are not working.
The benefits, both for the physical health as for the psychological health, of the baths in the sea are well known. After enjoying a time on one of our beaches and swimming a little in the ocean, you will feel phenomenal.
You can get all the information about the best beaches in the north of Tenerife in the category of the blog where we talk about each one of them.
Contact with the nature
But apart from the beaches, nature is an element present everywhere you go. Especially in the north of Tenerife you will have at your disposal a great number of trails and recreational areas full of vegetation of all kinds. Here the green will be the predominant color, so that you can live all the sensations that the direct contact with the nature produces, something that perhaps in the place where you come from, will be more difficult.

Every month we have something to celebrate
Also in Tenerife, every month we have an event in villages or a popular fiesta that is the perfect excuse to meet friends and family and have fun. Either in one of the pilgrimages of Tenerife, a summer party, or gastronomic events to enjoy the excellent gastronomy of the Canary Islands.
A cosmopolitan island
Finally, we love to live with people from other countries and cultures. We have been accustomed for decades to feel the presence of millions of tourists who visit us every year, and we try to integrate them without any problem in our culture and to let them know all the benefits of Tenerife.
The coexistence between Tinerfeños and tourists becomes much more latent in the main tourist cities, among which is Puerto de la Cruz, where our newly renovated Ambassador Apartments are located.
Puerto de la Cruz is a city that is in constant movement and especially in the last years in a process of modernization that has been increasing, reason for which more and more tourists are visiting us.
We invite you to get to know the Ambassador Apartments a little better. If you are planning a trip to Tenerife, and you think Puerto de la Cruz is the ideal place to feel the happiness that is lived in Tenerife, our team will strive to make you in your future holidays on the island very happy so that you always remember them very positively.
Book your days of happiness in Puerto de la Cruz for your future holidays on the island of Tenerife. We would love to get to know you.
