The quickest way to get to Los Cristianos. You will always need to combine two modes of transport to get to Los Cristianos. You need to get to the island by ferry or plane and then carry on to Los Cristianos by car or public transport.
The easiest way to get to Los Cristianos is to fly and then hire a car. We hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions then please don?t hesitate to get in touch using our forum. From the mainland it is really easy to come by plane as there are flights every day from various different companies. Iberia and Vueling fly every day. When going to Los Cristianos, it is easier to fly into the south airport, the Reina Sofia. This is because Los Cristianos is only 20 minutes way, on the other hand the north airport, Los Rodeos, is 55 minutes away. When booking a flight, make sure that it arrives in the Southern airport. This can be difficult if coming from the mainland, as most flights from Spain arrive in the northern airport. The southern airport is used more by companies from England, Germany, Italy and France. If you don?t want to hire a car you can catch the bus (known as a guagua in the canaries) but it takes longer and the service isn?t the best. A transfer by bus from the airport to Los Cristianos takes around 30 minutes and costs 1.90?.
Another option is to take a taxi. When you come out of the arrivals gate carry on straight ahead to the end of the passage way. There is a taxi rank there. There are always loads of taxis waiting for fares. A trip to Los Cristianos costs 25? - 30?. The best thing of the service is that the taxi driver will leave you right outside you door. From the northern airport it is a bit more complicated. If you take a bus you will have to change buses and it can be a bit complicated. Firstly you need to take the number 104 to Santa Cruz. It takes about 20 minutes and costs 1, 40?. From the Santa Cruz stop you will need to catch the 111 or the 110. The latter is a direct bus and therefore quicker; it takes about 60 minutes and will cost 7, 80 ?. The 111 costs the same but takes about 80 minutes. All in all you can estimate that with changes the whole trip will take about 3 hours. A taxi from the northern airport in Tenerife to Los Cristianos costs about 90?. It is very expensive unless you are travelling in a group and can share the cost. To arrive by boat from the mainland, the Armas Company offers a route from Huelva, you will spend the night at sea, but you can bring the car. There is only one trip a week each way. The boat leaves Huelva on Saturdays and Tenerife on Fridays. As you can see it is a lot easier to come by plane as you can choose your departure and arrival dates and it is not as restrictive as when coming by boat. You can book your ticket either for the plane of boat with us at Costasur. So there it is, we would recommend that whenever possible you fly to the southern airport in Tenerife and from there get a taxi to los Cristianos.
