You can find the charming little town of Icod de Los Vinos perched deep into the hills of the famous Mount Teide in the region of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the north of the island. The resort serves more as a day-trip rather than a longer, full holiday destination due to the fairly limited amount of things to do. However, it does still have some fantastic reasons to visit including a ‘Dragon Tree’, a number of parks to relax in and some caves to explore.
Low cost holidays to Icod de Los Vinos are very readily available and the island can be reached from most regional airports.

Icod de Los Vinos enjoys its busiest time during the summer period - from Spring until Autumn but doesn’t get overwhelmingly busy at any point in the year as it is not a tourist resort. Temperatures reach at least the high 20s on most days throughout this period making it a very reliable destination when it comes to the climate. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from Autumn to Spring but not massively as this place is an affordable choice all year round.
The ‘Dragon Tree’ in this resort (‘Drago Milenario’ as it is locally known) is the centerpiece of this town and definitely worth a visit. It is estimated to be around 500 to 600 years old with its branches reaching a staggering 17 metres into the sky! It is a very majestic part of the town and it is surrounded by immaculate gardens that are well worth the entrance fee themselves. If the outside temperatures start to get a bit too hot, why not travel down into the caves underneath Icod? Cueva del Viento is a great attraction and the giant tunnels built by the island’s volcanic past are the largest of their kind in the whole of Europe!
Despite its relatively small size, this resort actually features a fairly impressive range of accommodation. Anything from classic hotels to budget-friendly hostels to homely apartments and villas are available here - pretty much all budgets and preferences are catered for. The local cuisine is very traditional and the town has an abundance of cheese and wine shops to check out. Meat and fish are the speciality of many restaurants in this area so don’t miss out on some tasty grub!
