As you leave the airport, follow the signs for Los Cristianos until you are on the TF-1 Motorway. From there, follow the motorway for about 13 kilometers and then take the exit marked “Los Cristianos” – be aware that there are two exits in quick succession – take the second one marked “TF-665 Los Cristianos”. From there, just follow the road into Los Cristianos.
There are four public bus routes that connect Tenerife South Airport with Los Cristianos, though route 40 is the most frequent (every half hour during the day). At night, the number 711 bus connects Santa Cruz with Costa Adeje and stops at both Tenerife South Airport and Costa Adeje on the way. Both the 111 and 343 routes also stop at Tenerife South Airport and Los Cristianos. The journey takes about 35 minutes and costs €3.20. More information and timetables can be found at the public bus website here.
It costs roughly €26 for a taxi from Tenerife South to Los Cristianos and the journey time is around 20 minutes. There isn’t normally a long wait at the airport taxi rank.
By Airport Transfer
A pre-booked airport shuttle transfer costs just €3.29 (which is even cheaper than the public bus) and will bring you to your hotel! A private transfer for up to 4 passengers costs as little as €21.21 – which is less than the cost of a taxi. Larger groups can also be catered to with people-carriers and mini-buses.
