Something for the weekend: Isle of Tenerife Rally

This weekend, on Saturday, 17th October, 2015, the annual Rally Isla Tenerife (Isle of Tenerife Rally) takes place. Starting and finishing in Santa Cruz, you can download maps showing all the phases of the rally here (PDF), should you wish to go along and watch, or want to know where roads will be closed or restricted.


If you're looking for something more traditional to do this weekend, on Sunday, 18th October, 2015, there's the Romería de Adeje, the culmination of the town's annual fiestas with an explosion of color, gastronomy and folklore.

And Buenavista del Norte is also in the middle of it's main annual fiestas, the Fiestas de Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios en Buenavista, so you're sure to find something.
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.
