Let's talk about connectivity. You arrived at Tenerife Airport, South or North. The first thing you should do is go to a Guagua (Bus) station if you want to travel by bus. Yes, Guagua, this is the particular way to call the buses in the Islands.
Transportation to the airport
Nests Hostels also offers a shuttle service from the different airports directly to the hostel. Write to us at this number (also WhatsApp +34 628991703) the standard rate is 55 euros from north to south and from south to north. From north to Puerto Nest 35€.
South Airport and the Nests Hostels
If you arrive at the South Terminal, the closest option is Médano Nest, only 30 minutes away, or El Duque Nest, approximately one hour away.
Guagua 415 and 408 will take you directly to Médano Nest Hostel .
Number 40 is the main connection to Duque Nest Hostel.
The number 40 and then the number 477 (not 473 because it has 40 stops) for Arena Nest Hostel.
North Airport and the Nests Hostels
If you landed at Tenerife North Airport, you are minutes away from Aguere Nest and little else gives Puerto Nest. It is located in the center of La Laguna, an exciting university town, which belongs to the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
To get there Aguere Nest Hostel take bus number 20 which will take you there in only 15 minutes.
For Puerto de la Cruz and Puerto Nest Hostel take the Guagua 30 it is 30 minutes 😉
We are waiting for you, do not delay.
Here you have the official website with the schedules of each airport and the tourist ones, Google Maps usually works very well, just remember that on holidays the buses run less and therefore it is better to be informed.
- Tenerife North Airport [20 Santa Cruz/La Laguna, 30 Puerto de la Cruz, 343 Express Puerto Cruz/Los Cristianos].
- Tenerife South Airport [10 Santa Cruz, 40 Costa Adeje/Los Cristianos, 711 Nocturno, 343 Express, 415 San Isidro/El Fraile/Las Galletas].
The guaguas are quite imposing with a nice green color, so they are not to be missed.
As for payment, you can pay for each trip ( one way or return, by card or cash), or you can buy a "bono-bus" from 10 to 30 euros (daily, weekly or monthly) which is valid on all routes. These passes are not assigned, so you can share them with several people. These passes allow you to save on travel expenses if you plan to visit the whole island by bus. Vouchers can be purchased at any TITSA station (the "Intercambiadores"), at some kiosks and at other establishments that are identified by a sticker on the outside, but are not sold directly on the bus. Of course, if your bus bono is insufficient to pay for the last trip, you can simply pay the difference in cash or card.
If you are not planning to buy a bono-bus, here are some prices for common journeys:
San Isidro - El Medano: 1 euro (10 cent bono-bus)
Puerto de la Cruz - Santa Cruz de Tenerife: 5 euros (3,30 euros with bono-bus)
Puerto de la Cruz - Tenerife South Airport: 13 euros (9,20 euros with bono bus)
Puerto de la Cruz- Playa de las Américas: 13,90 euros (9,15 euros with bono bus)
* Prices are approximate and may vary
You can also buy the titsa card (bono-bus) at the airport.
