How to go to Garachico
From Tenerife South airport by rental car to Garachico :
There are two ways to reach Garachico if you arrive at the Airport South of Tenerife. The mountain Route, direction west, which leads over 1170 meters of altitude, or the stretch of highway, direction east, which almost circle the island. For both routes it takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes and both are easy to find. I find the scenic mountain route more beautiful, but it is also more curvaceous ...
When you leave the airport and you choose the highway route, you first go direction "Santa Cruz", determined as about 20 minutes, then comes the exit "Autopista Norte", there you leave the southern highway and you will be leaded to the northern highway towards "Puerto de la Cruz". You drive this highway till the end, when, after "Puerto de la Cruz", it coverts into a road. Continua direction "San Juan
de la Rambla" and than "Icod de los Vinos". After "Icod de los Vinos" stay on the same road now towards "Buenavista". After a long tunnel, with oval holes, you have reached Garachico. Just drive the same road along the coast until you see, after a left turn you will see a small square with 4 big laurel trees at your left. There You leave the road, and between 2 bars: "Proha Norte" and "Bar Bahía" there is already the street Calle Perez Zamora, as you will find on the right side the number 9. Here I am waiting for you to show you your apartment which lies just around the corner.

Once arrived, usually the 'Directo 101' is already waiting and ready to go to "Puerto de La Cruz". You take this line again till the last stop: the bus station (estación de la guagua) of "Puerto de la Cruz". Then change to line 363, which runs through Garachico to Buenavista. Tell the bus driver you want to leave in Garachico, at 'la parada La Fast', at the old harbour. From there you just cross the road.
