Getting to the Canary Islands from the United States has always been a bit challenging, and often involves a stopover in Madrid, followed by a transfer to a European-based airline that services Tenerife, the capital of the island chain. Air Europa has just made visiting the islands much easier, with the introduction of weekly direct flights from Miami to Tenerife, starting from just $488 roundtrip.
The Canary Islands boast miles of beaches, unspoiled villages, vineyards, banana plantations, and numerous historical sites. The climate couldn’t be more perfect, with temperatures falling between 65 and 75 degrees year-round. Flights will depart on Saturdays beginning June 30, but book early to secure low rates before the word spreads and seats begin to sell out.
The introductory rate of $488 is based on roundtrip and does not include taxes and fees which can total nearly $300.
The Canary Islands are owned by Spain, and therefore the standard currency is the Euro. Although the exchange rate is much more favorable than it has been in recent years, every Euro spent is still going to cost you around $1.32 USD.
