30 Mar 2013

Customer Travel Tip: Visit the beaches, as well as the mountains in the center of the island, the mix is what makes the Canarian islands most beautiful. If you have time, travel to one of the other islands by ferry (you might see dolphins)

Liked: Such nice weather even in March. Very friendly and helpful people and beautiful beaches. Good public transportation (but be careful with schedules, they might not be correct)

Disliked: Many tourists, it's probably even worse in summer. The eastern coastline is very industrialized.
