Applying for Spanish nationality
Those who wish to apply will have to have been legally and demonstrably resident in Spain for a continuous period of ten years, and must show what is called good citizenship and integration, which obviously includes being able to understand and speak Spanish. 

Tenerife Tourism: British visitor arrivals up by over 20 percent
The latest figures from the Tenerife Tourism Corporation indicate that over 800,000 visitors from the UK travelled to Tenerife between January to May 2016, representing an increase of 20.8% on the previous year. These statistics are all the more remarkable considering that 2015 saw a total of 1,765,216 visitors from the UK market, which already represented an uplift of 4.8% on the previous year.

Forest fire alert, advice and instructions to the public, for current heatwave
In addition to the Canarian Government’s forest fire risk alert, the Tenerife Cabildo has issued its own ban on all fires in the mountains and other areas at risk, e.g. forests, from 8am. The ban will remain in place while the heatwave lasts and the Government’s alert is in place.

Tenerife’s Virgen del Carmen summer fiesta season 2016
It’s midsummer, and Tenerife is pretty much on holiday from now through July and August, and over these next two months or so throughout the island there is a series of fiestas honouring the Virgen del Carmen – the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel who is the patron saint of fishermen. 

Ricky Martin to perform in Los Cristianos in September
As part of the Son Atlántico 2016 festival, Ricky Martin – world famous double-grammy award winner with multiple platinum sales – has confirmed that he will be giving a concert in Los Cristianos as part of his One World Tour. The concert will be held in the Antonio Domínguez stadium at 8.30pm on Saturday, 10 September, and tickets are expected to sell out quickly after they go on sale.

Rock Of Ages And Monster Fun In Garachico
Maybe the marina wasn’t floating as many boats as predicted but four years on from its opening it was a welcoming sight as the Buenavista bus brought me into Garachico. Icod de Los Vinos was still emerging from early morning low cloud but the coast was bathed in sunshine. Some 200 berths were supposed to kick start the local economy with pleasure craft and excursion boats, Garachico is resilient and has always come through in the past, this might take a little longer.
