North Tenerife South Tenerife Comparison  

As a rough generalisation the Northern resorts are more popular with the Germans and the Southern resorts more popular with the Brit's. 

The South tends to be more drier,sunnier, arid and warmer than the North.

The North has more rain and clouds, this makes the country side greener and more lush.

As you travel around Tenerife, the mountains create several micro climates, giving rise to different plant species in these different areas, based on different rainfall, cloud cover and heights above sea level.
