Welcome to Santiago del Teide
This small town, sitting just to the northwest of the national park boundary, as well as on the junctions for Los Gigantes and Garachico, makes a superb base for all of these places. In addition Masca and the Teno mountains are just a few minutes to the northwest and the immediate area is littered with fantastic hiking trails, which are at their best in early spring when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. There’s a small tourist office on the main square beside the church that can provide information on the many fine walking trails in the area. The town is also home to one of the better places to stay in Tenerife.
