Will You Have to Pay to Visit Teide National Park?

A bit of a hornet’s nest has been stirred up after it was announced there could be some ‘charges’ introduced for visiting Teide National Park from 2016.

The catalyst for this is the fact that the Tenerife Cabildo (government) take control of management of the park from 2016.

What exactly these charges will be is still being debated and there are bound to be a lot of tweaks before any charges are actually implemented, depending on the response to some proposal and also, hopefully, when the powers that be actually stop to think about logistics.

However, this is how things currently stand.

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.
