If we had to choose one item that goes absolutely everywhere with us, most of us would say our mobile phone. We may try to delude ourselves but we’re just as addicted to it on holiday, whether it’s taking photos to remember every moment or enlisting the help of Google Maps to stop us from getting lost, the truth is that we rarely do anything without our phone nearby. So why not use it to our advantage by downloading some fabulous apps that will help us get to know Tenerife so much better?
We’re going on holiday, fantastic! But…we have to pack the cases. We know it will all be worth it but if only there was a way to make the packing process a bit more enjoyable. Well it just so happens that there is, in the shape of a great app called Packpoint. By downloading Packpoint we can avoid that horrible feeling that we’ve forgotten to pack something important. Just introduce your destination, how many days you’re going for and the type of holiday you’re hoping to have (sun and swim, walking in nature, sporty, etc.) and depending on the weather forecast expected in the holiday destination, the app suggests a list of clothes and accessories to take along with you. You can then modify the list to add or remove items, saving your finished list and with the peace of mind that you won’t leave anything behind.
We’re sure that you’re already well aware of the fact that the best place to stay in Tenerife is in Baobab Suites. Did you also know, however, that the hotel has its own app?. You’ll discover recommendations for restaurants, beaches, things to do and the weather forecast for during your stay. Want to learn more about Tenerife’s history and culture?

It’s likely that you may have been recommended to visit a guachinche to experience authentic Canarian cuisine in rustic surroundings. Finding a real one can be an arduous task for non-locals as you might ask yourself: how can I distinguish an authentic guachinche from a normal restaurant? Download Guachapp and you won’t have that dilemma anymore. You can search by location, map or places near you to discover the best guachinches nearby. It also says what their signature dish is and their overall rating.
Fancy discovering the island but don’t really know where to start? The Tenerife tourism board has created an app in several languages to help you. The best thing is that you can listen to the audio guides and learn facts about the most important monuments and landscapes that in most cases, even Canarians don’t know. In total there are 28 audioguides to listen to.
When we think of Tenerife the image that pops to mind most of the time is a sun and sea holiday but with the Tenerife Rural app we can discover that there is so much more to the largest island in the Canaries. Want to know about typical Canarian products like the many different wines, cheeses or honeys that are produced in Tenerife? Curious about where the best farmer’s markets are to get the freshest fruit and vegetables? If so, what are you waiting for to download this app? All this information and much more in the palm of your hand.
You might not know this, but Tenerife is also home to some of the best hiking sceneries you can imagine so, even if just for one day, leave your bikini in the hotel and get walking! Don’t know where to go? With this app that won’t be an issue any longer as you’ll be able to see a variety of hiking trails in the south of the island. You can compare the length and difficulty of the trails and see approximately how long they take to complete, along with a short description of what makes each trail unique.
Having fun is the most important thing on holiday, but we always need to take care. In such a privileged holiday destination as this, where we’re blessed with sun almost every day of the year, we have to be more careful than ever when it comes to sun exposure. With Solare we can check ultraviolet radiation levels in real time. It also tells us how long we can be outside with no sun cream on according to the temperature and our skin type.
Now you know, to make the most of your stay in Tenerife while discovering hiking trails, guachinches and how to protect your skin from the sun, all you have to do is connect your mobile device to the free Baobab WIFI and download these great apps.
