Tenerife weather

Tenerife is nice to visit all year round – though it’s cooler and wetter from November to March. There are microclimates in the mountains, where the weather can change from hour to hour. The south of Tenerife is said to have more settled weather – at least according to the people who live there. People who live in the north will protest that their weather is often just as nice.
