Tenerife Travel Secrets

And... WE ARE LIVE!! Finally, after several months of rebuilding pages, fixing bugs, changing and re-changing the layout... Urgh, the past few weeks have been a real challenge for us. When we thought everything was finalized we had a major issue with the new layout and had our web designer reconfigure everything. But well, we'll save you the details, and finally announce that our new layout is online. But that comes at a price... In the rush of getting everything finalized this week, we decided to fix several pages on the go, meaning that we'll spend the coming days/weeks adjusting the website. In any case, we'd love to hear from you about your first impressions of the new look (don't worry, we know that there are lots of things to fix...).

This week will be devoted to our fantastic partners, who were on board with us and were kind enough to offer some pretty cool prizes to our loyal readers. So here we go... The 6 winners of our prizes are:

NL Andrea, - 1st prize
Daniel Nosti, - 2nd prize
Sole Gonzalez, - 3rd prize
Patrizia Avella, - 4th prize
Artan Toplanaj - 5th prize
Gavin Smith - 6th prize


Congratulations to you all! We'll be in touch with you about the details.

Once again, thanks for your loyalty, and thanks to our fantastic partners. Stay tuned, as this is going to be a great year for Tenerife Travel Secrets.

All the best!

Fabio and Ruth


Y... ¡ESTAMOS ONLINE! Finalmente damos noticias, tras algunos meses de reconstrucción de páginas, errores, cambio y cambio de diseño... y especialmente las últimas semanas que han sido un verdadero desafío para nosotros. Cuando pensamos que todo estaba listo, tuvimos un problema importante con el nuevo diseño y nuestro diseñador web tuvo que reconfigurarlo todo. Pero bueno, guardaremos los detalles y finalmente podemos anunciar que nuestro nuevo diseño finalmente está online. Pero ... eso viene una consecuencia,ya que con las prisas de tener todo finalizado esta semana, decidimos arreglar varias páginas sobre la marcha... lo que significa que pasaremos los próximos días / semanas ajustando la página web. En cualquier caso, te pedimos paciencia y nos encantaría saber de ti, lo que piensas sobre la nueva imagen (no te preocupes, sabemos que hay muchas cosas por arreglar ...).

Esta semana estará dedicada a nuestros fantásticos socios y colaboradores, que nos han apoyado y han sido tan amables de ofrecer algunos premios geniales a nuestros leales lectores. Así que aquí vamos... los 6 ganadores de nuestros premios son:

1- NL Andrea
