Lagarto Backpackers Hostel
Camino del Guincho, 108 - La Laguna
Valle Guerra - Tejina, Tenerife (to print our funny-social map !)

How to get to Lagarto Backpackers:


1. Take Highway del Norte and get off at Exit GUAMASA-VALLE GUERRA (Exit #14).

2. Continue bound for VALLE GUERRA (approximately 5Km. drive).

3. Once you arrive in VALLE GUERRA follow the signs that read TEJINA, and before arriving to Tejina pay attention to a sign that reads CALLE PALENZUELA.


5. Continue towards LA BARRANQUERA beach (approximately 1,5Km. drive), and before arriving to the beach you shall see a sign that reads LAGARTO BACKPACKERS on the right hand side of the road (remember to print our funny-social map : click here).

6. Our little street is right in front of a company name AGROTINERFE.

IMPORTANT: no matter what, don't forget to follow the road bound for LA BARRANQUERA. We are on a small street in front of a company called AGROTINERFE.


BY TAXI : Ask the taxi driver to take you to La Barranquera beach, between Tejina and Valle Guerra, and 600mts before reaching the beach look out for a sign that signals to our location!
Remind the taxi driver that our street is in front of a the company named AGROTINERFE.
Maybe you can give him our funny-social map : click here.


BY BUS (called GUAGUA):

Tip : if you buy a BONO (prepaid bus card) you can have discounted fares

1. From La Laguna main Bus Station (Intercambiador de la Laguna) get line L-51 POR TEGUESTE or L-57 POR TACORONTE. The line 51 is faster than 57 line.

2. The bus takes approximately 30 minutes, and you will have to get off at LA HERRENA bus stop (between Tejina and Valle Guerra).
IMPORTANT : ask bus driver where to get off, write down the name of the bus stop 'LA HERREA' or just ask for the TERRERO DE LUCHA bus stop, between Tejina and Valle Guerra.

3. Once off the bus you need to walk down the hill straight towards the ocean (La Barranquera beach), and LAGARTO BACKPACKERS is approximately 15 minutes walk on this road.

4. IMPORTANT: no matter what, don't forget to follow the road bound for LA BARRANQUERA. We are on a small street, on the right side you can see our indication 'LAGARTO'. Remember that we have free parking.

5. If you are very tired give us a call and we will come pick you up at the bus station at LA HERREA! The ride is free! Remember we are your home in Tenerife!

6. IF YOU FEEL YOU'RE GETTING LOST CALL US AND WE WILL HELP YOU !!!! We speak fluent English, Spanish, Italian.

Located Near

We are just 600m from La Barranquera beach and very closed to Jover and Bajamar, natural beaches and known surfing zones.
From the garden is possible to see Teide Volcano, Spain's greatest mountain.
Actually we're in a perfect position to visit the North part of Tenerife : Macizo de Anaga, La Laguna, Puerto de la Cruz, Santa Cruz, Punta Hidalgo and many other places. And remember, here is always SPRING !!!
