Things to do in Tenerife in December 2020

In Tenerife, as in the rest of Spain, the festive period is a little different from elsewhere. For example, the big family meal is on Christmas Eve (Nochebuena) rather than Christmas Day. And New Year's Eve is called Nochevieja with locals seeing out the old year as much as seeing the new one in.

The Fería Regional de Artesanía de Canarias, held in Santa Cruz de Tenerife's Recinto Ferial de Tenerife, offers an early opportunity to start Christmas shopping with a number of fashion designers, jewellery makers, and potters selling wares made on the island.

If you want to stay fit rather than get fat over the festive period, you can enter the K42 Canarias Anaga Marathon with races at K42, K21, K12, and KVertical levels.

To keep kids out of your hair during Christmas, take them to Santa Cruz de Tenerife's PIT (Parque Infantil y Juvenil de Tenerife) with attractions including indoor football and inflatables.
