"Packing List" Canary Islands Packing List Tip by marquinius

Canary Islands What to Pack: 26 reviews and 12 photos

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: hiking boots are a MUST. Leave the brogues at home and bring some sensible shoes or sandals for the evenings. Bring a poncho (yes, it rains) AND some warm clothing, because up in the mountains it can be cold. In short: you will have to bring everything ranging between warm and sunny and cold and freezing rain or snow.

Miscellaneous: You can either stay in a hotel (OK, but very 'tourist'), or rent a 'casita'. Casita Rurales are small cottages, mostly in the smaller villgas and right between the local houses.
