TENERIFE and PORTO DE LA CRUZ
The population of the island is about 700.000 of which about 210.000
live in the capital city Santa Cruz, situated on the north-west coast of
the island. Tenerife (as well as the other Canarian Islands) is partly
tax-free zone. The main source of livelihood of Tenerife is the tourism
industry: more than four million tourists visit the island every year.
Tourism has very long traditions in Tenerife, the first tourists came
from England in the 1880's! There is some agriculture too: vegetables,
fruit and flowers. The most important cultivated plant is banana
[platano]. A Tenerifean banana is quite different from its distant
cousin the Chiquita banana. A platano is short and plump. The colour of
the fruit flesh is darker yellow and the taste much more delicious.
There can be hundreds of thousands of banana plants on one plantation.
They also make licquer of the bananas on the island. Another important
plant is the grapevine. The rich volcanic soil and mild climate give the
wine its own unique aroma. In Tenerife there are as many as five
"Denomination of Origen (DO)" vineyards: Abona, Tacoronte-Acentejo,
Valle de Guimar, Valle de la Orotava and Ycoden-Daute-Isora. The largest
of these is Tacoronte-Acentejo, area 1.200 hectares. The production in
1997 was 1.553.000 kgs grapes. The most cultivated brands of grape are
the white Listan Blanco, Malvasia and Marmajuelo, the red Listan Negro
and Negramoll. 

There are two airports on the island. The international airport Reina
Sofia (Tenerife Sur TFS) in the south near Playa de las Americas where
most of the international flights land. The other airport Los Rodeos
(Tenerife Norte TFN) is in the north near La Laguna. Los Rodeos serves
mainly domestic flights. The distance from Reina Sofia to Playa de las
Americas is about 20 kms and the trip takes about 20 mins, to Puerto de
la Cruz about 100 km and takes about 90 mins. Tenerife is dominated by
the highest mountain in Spain, the volcano Teide, the often snow covered
summit of which reaches the altitude of 3.717 meters. El Teide is not a
dormant volcano! The last (though minor) eruption took place in the
beginning of this century. The last disasterous eruption happened in the
year 1706. The southern part of the island is very infertile and next
to nothing grows without artificial irrigation. The southern resorts
Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos have been built for tourism
only and there is no local settlement. The prices there are distinctly
higher than in the Capital City or Puerto de la Cruz. But the best
beaches are on the southern coast and the sunshine is best counted on
there. The newcomer among the resorts of Tenerife is the small and
peaceful Los Gigantes on the west coast. In the northern parts of the
island the nature is quite different from the southern nature. The
clouds arriving from north don't always have the strength to clear the
mountain but pour their rain north of the mountain. Due to these showers
the flora is unbelievably rich and breathtakingly beautiful. That is why
Puerto de la Cruz is often called the City of Eternal Spring. The best
time to travel to Tenerife is February. 

Puerto de la Cruz was founded in the beginning of the 17th century.
Originally it was called Puerto de la Orotava. A big harbour was built
there and the city became an important centre of commerce and
navigation. The most important export articles until the 19th century
were sugar and wine. Nowadays the main source of livelihood of Puerto de
la Cruz is tourism. Despite of mass tourism Puerto is still a genuine
Canarian town with about 35.000 natives living there.

The island of Tenerife was born 10 million years ago as a result of an
underwater landslide and a volcanic eruption. The first of the Canary
Islands were born the same way some 20 million years ago. The island was
conquered from the natives, the Guanches, to Spain by Andalusian Alonso
Fernandez Lugo and his troops in the year 1496. The origin of the
Guanches is still a mystery to the anthropologists because they were
tall, blond and blue-eyed. Furthermore there is no proof of their boat
making skills and obviously they couldn't even swim! You can familiarize
yourself with the history of the Guanches in Museo Etnografico in La
Orotava or in Santa Cruz in Museo Arqueologico where you can meet a
Guanche in person - as a mummy. Tenerife is the largest of the Canary
Islands.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCES' HOTELS
a) TENERIFE PLAYA
Few places in the world have the charm of Puerto de la Cruz. Its world
famous Lago Martianez is, even today, the most avant-garde example of
what it means to live in a town which faces the sea. The Tenerife Playa
is in a lovely setting beside Lago Martianez and the beach of the same
name, and next to the shopping centre of Puerto de la Cruz. Rooms with
complete bathroom, direct dialling, telephone, satellite TV and safe. 2
swimming pools (one of which is heated), hairdresser, sauna, massages.
Comfortable lounges. Games Room. Function rooms for holding
conferences, seminars and incentives. Restaurant with buffet service.
Barbecue by swimming pool. Varied entertainment programmes.

b) SAN FELIPE
San Felipe is one of the most emblematic buildings of Puerto de la Cruz.
Its presence dominates the beach and offers views over lake Martianez
and the main promenade. Highlighting the architecture of the building
are its balconies, as well as the spacious, comfortable rooms with wide
terraces with marvellous sea or Teide views, air conditioning,
telephone, piped music, safety deposit box, mini-bar on request,
complete bathroom, satelite TV, and hairdryer. The cuisine is another
selected service with varied, high quality buffets and magnificients
barbecues beside the pool. Hotel San Felipe also offers 3 swimming pools
(one of which is for children and one is heated all year-round), tennis
courts, minigolf, sauna and massage, hairdressing, boutique, parking and
conference rooms with capacity for 200 people for professional meetings,
conferences working sessions or banquets. A varied entertainment
programme is also available.
