By Car

As you leave the airport, follow the signs for “TF-1 Granadilla – Santa Cruz, La laguna” onto the northbound TF-1 motorway. Continue on the TF-1 Motorway for about 53km, then take the exit for the TF-2. This exit is very easy to miss, but it is the next exit after “El Chorillo El Tablero”. Follow the signs onto the TF-2 (Aeropuerto Norte) and then continue on the TF-2 and follow the signs for “TF-5 La Laguna Aeropuerto Norte”. Once on the TF-5, you can just follow the signs to Puerto de La Cruz.

By Bus

The 343 bus route from Costa Adeje stops at Tenerife South Airport and is the only direct bus route to Puerto de la Cruz. The journey takes about 1 hour and 25 minutes and costs €13.55. Alternatively, you could catch a 711 (nocturnal) or 111 bus to Santa Cruz, and then a 102, 103 or 104 bus from there to Puerto de la Cruz. More information and timetables can be found at the public bus website here.

By Taxi

It costs between €100 – €120 for a taxi from Tenerife South to Puerto de la Cruz and the journey time is around 70 minutes. There isn’t normally a long wait at the airport taxi rank.

By Airport Transfer

A pre-booked airport shuttle transfer costs as little as €13.49 (which is even cheaper than the public bus) with the added bonus that it will take you all the way to your hotel! A private transfer for up to 4 passengers costs as little as €78.41 – which is quite a bit less than the cost of a taxi. Larger groups can also be catered to with people-carriers and mini-buses available. Click here for more information or to book.

    Hi, on 19.10.2022 – Wednesday – I’m going from Tenerife to London. I’m staying at Puerto de la Cruz and flying from Reina Sofia Airport to UK. My flight is at 11.15am, so I should be at the airport at 9.15am. At what time should I leave my apartment at Puerto then? The travel by taxi takes about 1h 15min, but are there any traffic jams at that time? How much time should I take for the trip to don’t be late for the plane?

      Hi, I would allow a little longer than 75 minutes just in case there are traffic issues in the La Laguna/Santa Cruz area. I’d imagine that if you leave at about 07:40, you will have plenty of time.

      Hi, I spoke to the transfer company, and they have now added Best Semiramis Hotel, so you should be able to book your transfer.
