Tenerife north, Canary Islands – November Weather
What’s the weather like in Tenerife in November?
While the month of November is still a great time to plan a holiday to Tenerife North, visitors should be prepared for some cooler spells and plan on spending more time inside as the rainfall amounts begin to creep upward yet again.
While it has been possible up to this point to continue to swim in the Atlantic Ocean while on holiday, that is not the case as much anymore. Sea temperatures this time of the year begin to fall to an average of 19°C (66°F). This is significantly cooler than what they had been just a month earlier in October. For hardy vacationers, temperatures such as these may not be a deterrent, but many swimmers may want to stay out of the water or wear a wetsuit.
On land, temperatures are sill very warm despite getting deeper into the year. Average afternoon highs are 24°C (75°F). These conditions mean that visitors will still be comfortable with the outdoor activities the northern half of the island offers. In fact, temperatures will still be warm enough to leave jackets in the room during the daytime hours and only bring them out at night. Average overnight lows fall to 18°C (64°F). This may be cool enough for some to need a light jacket once the sun goes down.
Rainfall amounts will also creep upwards at this time of the year with the northern part of the island averaging approximately 30mm of rain for the month. Much of this rain will fall primarily over the course of 7 days of the month. As winter begins to approach, much of the rain on the northern half of the island occurs at night leaving the days dry. In fact, the region will continue to receive up to 8 hours of sunlight per day which is definitely better than elsewhere in Europe at this time of the year.
Tenerife Hotels in November
If visitors are looking for a hotel that gives you options to explore Tenerife North’s capital city, the Hotel Contemporaneo is a logical option. This modern hotel is located on a significant street within Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Its parking is less than ideal so it’s best for travelers who are not renting a car and there are numerous taxi options if you forego the rental car. If you book here, bring your earplugs if you don’t enjoy the nightlife because it’s located on a major street, it could be a little too loud here.
Parque de la Cruz
If visitors are traveling with a family and are looking for something slightly different than a standard hotel, Parque las Flores in Puerto de la Cruz may be the answer. These apartments are all on one level and family owned. Close to all the major attractions, these apartments allow some level of privacy as well as full kitchens.
Hotel Pelinar is another good option for visitors in Puerto de la Cruz. This two-star hotel is an affordable option for those looking to stay on a budget. It is located in the heart of the city and just minutes away from both the airport and some of the world’s best beaches. It offers 73 fully equipped rooms with all amenities to make anyone feel at home.
Bars and Restaurants
Those looking for an outstanding restaurant in Puerto de la Cruz, need to check out Bodega Julian. Ranked as one of the best restaurants in the city, it offers fabulous food for a very reasonable price. The lamb comes highly recommended and the service is second to none.
For a more high-end meal, try Bambi Gourmet. The restaurant is also located in Puerto de la Cruz and offers Romanian dishes combined with international and local flares. The menu includes a nice mixture of both fish and meat as well as a children’s menu.
In Santa Cruz de Tenerife, one of the hottest nightspots is Magic Bar. With live music and a fun atmosphere, visitors can’t go wrong stopping here for a drink
Things to Do in Tenerife in November
Day of the Dead
Several religious holidays occur in the month of November. All Saints Day and Day of the Dead are observed at the beginning of the month. These holidays involve locals visiting the graves of their departed loved ones and leaving them gifts.
Fiesta de San Andres
On November 29th, the island celebrates the Fiesta de San Andres. This festival is celebrated in unique ways including sledding in the streets. Despite the lack of snow, and children making as much noise as possible in the streets. It’ll be a hard festival to avoid.
Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria
With Christmas just around the corner and rain more likely in November, now is a great time to take a trip to the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Candelaria. This basilica is located near the ocean and filled with beautiful paintings and statues. There is a trail of statues that lead from the sea to the church, making for a lovely walk. Wandering around the grounds of the church can take an afternoon but there are numerous cafes nearby to take a hiatus and admire the scenery.
Thanksgiving Travel In An Electric Vehicle
Thanksgiving can be a frenzied time for travel. Extreme weather can trigger rerouting and postponements. We watch the clock tick ahead as we sit idly in highway traffic jams. Long gas lines for those driving an internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle make everyone a little crazy. Waits at airports for rescheduled flights are really frustrating.
This Thanksgiving, more drivers than ever are choosing to travel via electric vehicle (EV) to their holiday destination. To learn what’s influencing traveler behavior for the holidays, Cars.com conducted a nationwide survey regarding consumers’ Thanksgiving plans. The 2022 Thanksgiving survey offers a whole bunch of interesting insights into how travelers — including those driving EVs — are planning for upcoming pilgrimages this holiday.
Let’s zoom in on the survey findings that relate particularly to EV drivers. This data helps us to understand the evolution of EV usage and driver attitudes as all-electric transportation becomes more and more common.
The survey indicated that having a confluence of charging stations and EVs on the road on Thanksgiving trips was quite high — 86%. EV drivers have been reduced to no range anxiety if they can depend on a network of charging stations along their route. As a Tesla Model Y driver with over 300 miles of range, I know I can travel along I-95 in Florida with relative ease due to the frequency of proprietary Tesla Superchargers. At the moment, there are more than 35,000 Supercharger stalls worldwide. The Tesla gives me a boost of assurance on out-of-town trips.
49% said that having charging stations along their route is very convenient. For those who are not Tesla EV drivers, the Biden-Harris administration has announced that federal officials have approved plans to expand a network of available electric vehicle charging stations by every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. That gives those governments access to a $5 billion share of money to deploy plug-in charging systems for the US and its fast-growing fleet of electric vehicles.
18% say they plan to take their EV on their Thanksgiving trip. EVs continue to see steady adoption and integration into consumers’ lives. While that seems like a small overall percentage, 10 years ago that number seemed a mere pipe dream. What will the percentage be driving an EV to their destination on Thanksgiving 2032?
Of those planning to drive to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving, 66% told survey staffer that range anxiety affects their travel distance. I’m starting to think of “range anxiety” as a press relations term rather than an accurate way to describe the necessary planning and analysis inherent in longer EV trips. Hey, I remember my dad laying out the maps on the floor ahead of time, planning routes and bathroom breaks for his young family. Perhaps better phrasing than “range anxiety” would allude to a JD Power study in which many EV owners cite out-of-service chargers as a major concern — even as more chargers are installed across the country. Forbes suggests that charging companies could sell Thanksgiving Fast Passes which provide short waits for dependable Thanksgiving supercharging.
55% said that they are traveling 51-100 miles in their EV. The dilemma about a 300-mile EV range being a deal breaker is mythologized and can be easily refuted. 65% of all drivers (EV and ICE) plan to travel within 50 miles of home. Rather than a lengthy cross-country trip involving several overnight stops, most EV and ICE drivers will enjoy a Thanksgiving visit and return home the same day. Thanksgiving is all about the comfort of tradition, and traveling by EV within the 100-mile range means reaching out to friends and family during the holiday season — but also having shorter overall travel time, possibly commuting with small children, and maybe even bringing along the family pet.
14% said they are traveling more than 100 miles in their EV. As my colleague Jennifer Sensiba wrote recently, EV travel for short and longer distances is absolutely manageable if one plans ahead, maps out routes, identifies chargers, and recognizes that longer travel in an EV requires a reflective mindset. A “road warrior trip” is possible and, with the right attitude and road trip plan, fun.
62% of all drivers in the survey indicated that they prefer to drive rather than fly when exceeding 100 miles. 92% of those who reconsidered Thanksgiving travel decisions due to flight disruptions are now planning to travel by car. With so many airlines being called out for their heat-trapping condensation trails, climate crisis realization seems to be taking place. In fact, 80% of all drivers said they are traveling by car for Thanksgiving. As Cars.com concluded, not only is driving typically more affordable than flying, but it also allows travelers to have more control over the trips. While traffic is often a wild card, at least the departure time and stops along the route can be anticipated with relative accuracy.
58% of respondents said they don’t typically travel for Thanksgiving at all. Indeed, 24% cite higher costs as the reason for not traveling. Perhaps Facetime and Zoom chats suffice and replace stressful Thanksgiving travel and family renewals today for a good number of people. Then again, saving money on holiday travel can come down to making the trip as efficient as possible. Hopping in an EV is a very efficient means of travel.
Final Thoughts about Driving an EV for Thanksgiving — and Life
One of the unsung benefits of driving an EV to Thanksgiving dinner and sharing in the food, family, and fun is that EV charging costs a whole lot less than buying gas. With complaints about inflationary groceries and other items’ costs post-Covid, an EV offers opportunities for locally sourced electricity at prices well below the cost of filling up at a gas station. Fuel efficiency reigns in an EV.
What other thanks should we as EV drivers give during this season? We’re grateful for our EVs because…
- The rapid acceleration gives us the ability to adjust quickly in unexpected driving situations.
- Having the newest tech means that we are driving the most efficient and capable vehicles on the road.
- Because many new people are now starting to appreciate the gift of all-electric transportation, more consumers means different models and options every year.
- An EV’s smooth and quiet drive is relaxing and soothing.
- Being able to charge at home the majority of the time is really convenient.
- Our EV has fewer maintenance costs than those ICE vehicles we owned years ago with all their moving parts.
- We find great solace in driving a zero emissions vehicle as individuals who are very concerned about the climate crisis.
- We breath with relief knowing that, even when charging an EV with electricity made only from coal — the dirtiest electricity source — the EV has better emissions than the average new compact ICE vehicle.
Thanksgiving is a joyous time. Let’s continue to reveal our own strategies for creating safe and happy EV road trips. In that way, we’ll continue to learn from each other and grow together as a community of EV drivers.
