In it you can learn a little more about the formation of the Canary Islands, acquiring some more knowledge about the destination that you are going to visit on vacation. A visit that you can realize completely free, with movie rooms in different languages.
Enjoy the traditional festivals
If you want to get involved in the culture of the Canary Islands, and get to know our festivals a little more, you can do it without any problem in the multitude of Romerías on Tenerife that take place throughout the year. The only thing that we recommend in these parties is that if possible, rent a traditional costume, to mix even more in the culture and integrate fully in this fiesta so typical of the islands.
It is also common that in these parties, people exchange traditional Canarian food or you can visit some carriages in which sometimes wine or food is distributed.
If you like to see the religious buildings of the places you visit, you will not have any problem in this regard. In Puerto de la Cruz you will like to visit the Church of the Peña de Francia, or the Hermitage of San Telmo. Also other places in the north of Tenerife, as the university city of San Cristóbal de La Laguna. We recommend the visit of the Cathedral which iss located in its historic quarter.
Hiking through the beautiful landscapes of northern Tenerife is probably one of the most enriching activities you can do for free in Tenerife.
You can always choose to hire an expert guide to accompany you during the tour and to know in detail every corner of the path. This would be something highly recommended if you are going to make complex trails. However, the great majority of the best trails of Tenerife are perfectly qualified for realizing them without any problem and without getting lost, as long as you follow the indications that you will find along the way.
In some places where there are a lot of trails in your environment, you can find information points for hikers to expand any information you need, as in the Cruz del Carmen.
On the other hand, there are trekking routes especially beautiful to do between January and February, as are the paths of Los Almendros en Flor in Santiago del Teide. They are fully recommended and every year a multitude of islanders and tourists see the beauty that impregnates the nature with the flowering of these almond trees.
Enjoy the art
In the district of Ranilla of Puerto de la Cruz
If art is something that you are passionate about, you have to pay a careful visit to the Ranilla district of Puerto de la Cruz, where, as we have already said, art permeates all its streets, mixing with the urban environment and embellishing it.
Tenerife Espacio de las Artes
If you visit the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, you have at your disposal the TEA (Tenerife Space of the Arts), where in addition to being able to see a picturesque building, also in many occasions there are artistic exhibitions whose entry is sometimes free.
The sun is an element that will be present with total security during your trip to Tenerife, and therefore, you will want to take a bath on one of the wonderful beaches or swimming pools that we have in Tenerife. Obviously, enjoying the beaches or natural pools, is something for which you will not have to spend anything, only if you prefer to visit Lake Martiánez in Puerto de la Cruz or the Maritime Park in the capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
However, with the multitude of additional options that you have to enjoy the ocean and the good weather, you will not need to go to any Maritime Park to return from your vacation a little more tanned.

These resources are public and free for the enjoyment of anyone who wants to be impressed by the beauty of our flora, fauna and volcanic orography, giving rise to a wide range of possibilities and experiences that you can live for free.
