Situated in the northern heart of the Canary Island of Tenerife is the idyllic town of La Esperanza. A La Esperanza holiday is a favourite option for those travellers looking for a rural location which offers tranquillity yet would like to be able to reach the attractions and sights of Tenerife very easily. As well as coming equipped with all of the mod-cons you would expect in a first-class hotel on the island, a La Esperanza holiday rental house will offer breath-taking views of the surrounding green countryside.
Whilst the emphasis of a La Esperanza holiday is to simply relax and recharge those batteries in the warmth of the sun, there are a range of activities available both in and around the town. Amongst the activities you can indulge in during your stay are swimming, snorkelling, diving, pier fishing, whale watching, mountain climbing, mountain biking, bird watching, go-karting, golf and tennis.
The island of Tenerife has some fantastic places to visit whilst on your La Esperanza holiday and this includes the town of Garachico, the former capital of the island. The town was victim to several volcanic eruptions and had to be substantially rebuilt during the 18th century. The lava that flowed into Garachico has formed many interesting rock pools which are a big draw for visitors to Tenerife. Another of the town's main attractions is the Castillo de San Miguel which dates back to the 16th century. The castle remained mostly unharmed during the time of the volcanic eruptions and now also houses an interesting fossil & rock collection.
It is very likely that the weather will play an important role on your La Esperanza holiday and you will want to know what to expect before you go.
