Flights & getting there

Land

Bus

Plenty of Tenerife’s bright-green TITSA buses come through the area. Bus 110 to Costa Adeje (direct, €9.45, one hour, every 30 minutes) passes through Los Cristianos and Playa de las Américas, and bus 111 (indirect, €9.45) comes and goes from Santa Cruz, travelling via Tenerife Sur Airport (€9.35). Bus 343 also goes from Costa Adeje to Tenerife Sur Airport (€3.70, 45 minutes). The same bus continues on to Tenerife Norte Airport (€12.40). Plenty of other buses run through the two resorts, en route to destinations such as Arona (bus 480), Los Gigantes (bus 473), Puerto de la Cruz (bus 343), El Médano (bus 470) and Las Galletas (bus 467).

The Playa de las América bus station is situated between central Las Américas, San Eugenio and the autovía (highway). There’s no Los Cristianos bus station, as such; the buses stop on Avenida Juan Carlos I, just beyond the crossroad with Avenida Amsterdam, opposite the Valdes Commercial Centre.
