InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Tenerife

Hello to all Americans in Tenerife! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Tenerife? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Tenerife which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Tenerife has more to offer than just tourist resorts. The popular destination is a Spanish city known for its natural beauty and ecological diversity, the Carnival of Santa Cruz, Tenerife’s wine, UNESCO World Heritage Site La Laguna city, and much more! With the tram services in Santa Cruz and an extensive bus network as well as toll-free motorways and roads, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of the villages, which are away from Tenerife’s center.

Although Tenerife has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Tenerife, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
