We arrived in Tenerife this morning and took a taxi tour of the island. The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife boasts a rich variety of scenery and attractions, from lively resorts and volcanic beaches in the south to the lush interior of the Orotava Valley and the stunning lunar landscapes of El Teide National Park, dominated by 12,000 foot snowcapped Mount Teide, Spain's highest mountain. The historic capital, Santa Cruz, is in the north.

Our taxi driver was very informative. He only spoke a little bit of English, but he had a great translator that he spoke into and it automatically spoke the words to us in English. We spent about five hours exploring the island. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. We had a wonderful time and hope you enjoy the pictures.
