Hubby and I have had two holidays in Tenerife but we have come to love the island very much. An added bonus is we have family living on the island but feel sure we would return to Tenerife even if our family wasn't there. The Canarian people are friendly, the shop workers are helpful too. The islanders love you to try to converse in Spanish even if it's only a few words you can speak in their language.
Above is a photograph of another inhabitant you will find at the Monkey Park and yes you can touch him and feed him too as he wanders about the enclosure.
