Travel information

Participants will most likely reach the island by plane. Tenerife offers two international airports, one at the north of the island, and the other one at the south.

The North Airport (TFN) is the most convenient for arriving at the venue, and is well served by flights from Mainland Spain. From TFN, a relatively short taxi ride (25 km) will bring you to the hotel. There is also a bus service (TITSA 102) passing through the airport every half hour.

The South Airport (TFS) is better served by direct flights from Northern Europe and other international cities. The distance from south airport to Puerto de la Cruz is about 90 km. Frequent and inexpensive local buses can take you to Santa Cruz, the island main city (67 km). From there, a taxi or a second bus can bring you to the hotel in Puerto de la Cruz (37km).
