Wale and dolphins watching in Tenerife
There are few excursions which can match the universal appeal of a boat trip. Imagine it: the sea breeze in your hair, the smell of salt, the sun on your face and the expectation of seeing some exotic marine life. Well in Tenerife this is the reality. Many dolphins and wales can be seen of the coast of Tenerife and the neary by Canary islands. Really having a boat charter trip is something I cannot recommend enough, it is something which people of all ages can enjoy together. Please go to this toursim agent if you would like a boat trip in Tenerife. It is possible to buy direct through their webpage.
There is a wide range of marine animals which can be seen in the warm waters of the Canary islands. Sharks, turtles, jelly fish, sting rays, sea cucumbers are just a few. But don’t worry, it is very unlikely that you will be attacked by a shark when swimming here.
There has also been an increase in eco tourism in the Canary islands
as part of a move to sustain the amazing wildlife which keeps people coming here. This is part of a balancing act to ensure that mass tourism which brings a lot of revenue to the island is not something which damages the wildlife and the quality of life for the local inhabitants.
Another great thing about Tenerife it is an extremely safe place and does not pose any of the dangerous which countries in North Africa have to tourists and holiday makers. This is one of the reasons that so many people come to retire on the peaceful island and who can blame them !?
La Gomera also offers holidays a lot of day trips and it is easy to get a ferry from Los Cristianos. You can drive round the island the entire day and see all that is available on this peaceful island. The people here have their own language which is made from whistling to communicate in the mountains.
Fuertevenura is a offers large amounts of sunshine all year round and it’s beaches cannot be matched by any of the other islands. It is also the longest island and the closest to Africa. It is possible to see the island from Santa Cruz ( the capital of Tenerife)
El Hiero is one of the more remote islands and least commercial. It has amazing scenery and is a very green island. I do not think there any direct flights here, so you will need to take a boat direct from Tenerife

Madrid is the geographical center of Spain, and the best means to travel from Madrid to other cities is by high-speed train because it beats air travel, and it is much more cosy and comfortable than by plane.
The most easy way to get euros is by using an ATM machine. Spain has the most ATM machines; almost at every block in its cities. Remember: always take out money in the currency of the country you are in, if the ATM asks you for currency exchange you will be charged a fee, greater than your bank would typically charge you back home.

The public transportation systems is not great in Spain, and even worse in places such as Tenerife or La Palma. Because of this it is best to plan carefully to avoid missing buss’s, as you never know when the next one might arrive.
