You can taste them directly in old winery cellars, or enjoy for dirt cheap in typical bodeguitas and toscas all around the island. Not only the food and eating out cost less - outside of tourist areas it's only about 7 euros for a 3-course delicious, home-cooked meal plus local wine that's less than 10 bucks ; but gas and most merchandise are significantly cheaper too. So owning a beautiful home overlooking the ocean without carrying a high 6-figure mortgage is very doable : Plus, investing in real-estate here, in one of the most stable political environments, along with the other pluses awesome weather, attractions galore, natural disasters-free area , yields increasing value to any property.
Without a doubt, when living in Tenerife work takes second place to enjoying life. Immediately after relocating to Tenerife this was quite an annoyance for us workaholics, but we've adjusted well ;.
Santa Cruz Neighborhoods
Siesta or Yoga Iberico as they like to call it is between pm, when most businesses close and streets become quiet as people like to have a nap after lunch. Local fiestas with fascinating music, dance and fireworks are frequently held in all villages around the island. Tenerife living means enjoying a perfect climate, much more sunshine than on Canada's West coast, lots of volcanic black sand beaches, clear air, plenty of fresh local food, a low-stress lifestyle Living by the ocean is very calming; lying on the sun-drenched black sand, listening to the waves and feeling the fresh and salty breeze relaxes the little grey cells pretty fast.
Barefoot walks on the beach give the feet a wonderful reflexotherapy massage The many health benefits of sea water are innumerable; no wonder thalassotherapy is well-documented for centuries.
Moving to Tenerife
Going to some of the luxury spas here got us hooked on the famous volcanic lava therapy and the rejuvenating full-body Aloe Vera wraps - offered along with some novel healing treatments and exotic massages. The bottom line is this. Tenerife's sunny days brightened our moods big time. As a result, we smile more, feel happier, sleep better, are more active and productive; in short, we're just getting more out of life :. From exploring the breathtaking Teide National Park, visiting vintage wineries and centuries-old churches hidden on narrow, cobbled streets, to having a splash in the lava rock pools, to visiting the neighboring islands, swimming with dolphins, horse riding, whale trips, Jeep safaris and exhilarating km downhill bike rides, to the more adrenaline-pumping thrills like paragliding, zip line stunts, rock climbing, walking inside lava tubes, there is so much to do and see here As well-established holiday spots, these Spanish islands are far away not only geographically from the old continent's social unrest, stemmed from the complicated birth of the European Union; so the Canaries are quite safe.
Tenerife's crime rate is very low and there aren't any "no-go" places. Beyond a couple of heavily packed tourist areas in the South where loud music, party goers, late-night drinking and even occasional pickpockets may be annoying, the island is quiet and peaceful. Interestingly, unlike everywhere in North America, owning a car here is not a must.
Another plus to moving to Tenerife are the top-quality medical services available for a very reasonable fee we pay here for private insurance half of what we used to pay in Canada as self-employed, and the coverage is more extensive. It reflects a rich history witnessing the mysterious Guanches arrived from Africa in the first century B. Here you can find everything, from lavish aristocratic Canarian mansions, neo-gothic churches and several fascinating museums hosting contemporary art exhibits, military artifacts, a fertility goddess and even some remarkable Guanche mummies , to world-class theaters, fine restaurants, European-style cafes and nightspots, high-end shopping malls and much, much more.
People often ask… if you wanted a warmer, sunnier climate, why didn't you choose the Caribbeans or Hawaii like other North Americans making a living on the net and unbound geographically? First, because Tenerife is not humid and hurricane-battered like the Caribbeans. Plus, unlike Hawaii, Tenerife is not isolated in the middle of the ocean, thousands of miles away from anywhere; in fact, there are only km miles to the closest continental coast, which may have some advantages Learn more about Kindle MatchBook.
