The largest and most hospitable island of the archipelago is Tenerife. It can also be called an island of contrasts. On the one hand, there is a progressive infrastructure and rapidly developing tourist centers, and on the other, calm lagoons and paradise beaches. If you are going to travel with children, it will be interesting to visit the local dolphinarium, zoo, botanical garden and oceanarium, which are located in one place called Loro Park. No matter what time of year you come, you will be pleased with warm weather, raging plants and soft, warm waves.
