As you leave the airport, follow the signs for Los Cristianos until you are on the TF-1 Motorway. Follow the motorway for about 18 kilometers, past Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, and then take the exit marked “78 – Costa Adeje – La Caleta – Fañabe”. Then take the third exit at the roundabout following the sign marked “La Caleta” and follow the road towards the coast – from here most of the hotels are signposted.
Note that if you are staying closer to Playa Fañabe at the southern end of Costa Adeje, then you should leave the motorway earlier at the exit marked “Salida 76 – Torviscas – Playa Fañabe – cambio de sentido”. Do not take the initial (sharp) right after coming off the motorway, but instead follow the sign for Playa Fañabe. Also note that ‘Adeje’ is the name of the municipal capital which lies a few kilometers inland, so do not follow the signs for ‘Adeje’.
Several public bus routes connect Tenerife South Airport with Costa Adeje Bus Station – including the night-time 711 route between Santa Cruz and Costa Adeje (stopping at the airport on the way). The most frequent route is the number 40 between Tenerife South Airport and Costa Adeje Bus Station which runs every 30 minutes during the day. The 343 and 111 routes also stop at both Tenerife South Airport and Costa Adeje. The journey takes about 40 minutes and costs €3.70. You should note that the Costa Adeje Bus Station is located at the far southern end of Costa Adeje, and is about 3km from the Playa del Duque area, so you will probably have to get a taxi from the bus station to your hotel. More information can be found at the public bus website here.
It costs around €28 for a taxi from Tenerife South to Costa Adeje and the journey time is around 25 minutes. There is not normally a long wait at the airport taxi rank.
By Airport Transfer
A pre-booked airport shuttle transfer costs just €3.29 (cheaper than the public bus) and takes you all the way to your hotel! A private transfer for up to 4 passengers costs as little as €21.21 – which is quite a bit cheaper than a taxi. Vehicles for larger groups can also be pre-booked.
