San Blas Environmental Reserve, South Tenerife’s Secret Valley

For anyone who wants to see the majesty of a volcanic landscape, but doesn’t want to spend an hour  travelling to Teide National Park; or for anyone who wants to know something of the island’s history, but doesn’t want to miss the sunshine visiting a museum; this is the alternative, and it’s only about 20 minutes from Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos. The San Blas Environmental Reserve, hosted by the Sandos San Blas Hotel, close to Golf del Sur, neatly combines history, geology, and nature study, in an entertaining way.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
