Hi guys! Writing to you from Tenerife as we have left our first hotel here and wanted to give you a review and tell you more about our first days here. We chose to stay in Icod de los Vinos first as we wanted to check out this lovely village and El Drago Milenario, the oldest and the biggest Dracaena drago tree that is located din Parque del Drago.
The park there is spectacular and you have some other activities that you can do there such as visiting the Mariposario, a huge living butterflies exhibition and also Casa del Plátano which is about the history of cultivating and exporting bananas.
We have stayed at Hotel Emblemático San Marcos which is an old restored ‘casa señorial canaria’ from XVIII century where art and relaxation combine perfectly. We have spent two lovely days in one of their suites with a great view to the narrow street. What I liked most about this space was their patio and garden, an oasis of relaxation filled with palm trees, banana trees and so many other exotic plants. Loved also how they’ve kept everything so traditional, including the common areas, the salon and the breakfast area. By the way, the hosts are super nice and they have great breakfast with fresh fruits, sweets, coffee, tea and eggs.
Here are some pictures from this amazing place and if you want to come to Tenerife I truly recommend you to stop by this charming village and stay at Hotel Emblemático San Marcos for a relaxing experience. Hope you like today’s pictures and wish you a great day, as sunny as all days in Tenerife.
