Contrary to most resorts in the Canary Islands, we would recommend a visit to Cruz de Tejeda during the spring rather than the summer, as this is when the flowering almond trees all around the city are in their full bloom and temperatures are more comfortable for walking. No matter what time of year you do decide to visit this place, be sure to bring a jacket for the evenings as it tends to get quite cool at the high altitudes! We would also recommend a midweek visit if possible as it can get crowded with locals on the weekends.
One of the best things to do in this region is to hike up to the iconic landmark of Roque Nublo. The journey can be made on foot from the town of Tejeda. Other notable hikes in and around Tejeda include the hamlet of La Culata where you will pass through many fields and a visit to the town of Cruz de Tejeda itself, where you can stop off in any one of the town’s vibrant bars and restaurants.
The accommodation in Cruz de Tejeda is fairly limited simply due to the fact that it is situated in such an isolated location. Small apartments and villas are the main options and can help you cultivate your own slice of paradise up in the mountains. The resort has the largest selection of bars and restaurants in the area, with many Spanish classic on offer as well as some international cuisine too.
