So why are Canary Islands a perfect destination?
Short Flight time. For most European cities 3-4 hours of flight time, easy to get around with daily bus operations to and from South Airport. Many low cost carriers like RyanAir, Norwegian Air or EasyJet fly there nowadays.
Affordable accommodation. Assuming you are booking well in advance, there are plenty of options. Particularly popular are apartments and studios with fully equipped kitchen. It is easy to find grocery stores around the corner and the food is inexpensive.
Exciting tours. Have a look around in Playa de Las Americas – you may find numerous private companies who will take you on a tour around the island. Prices vary depending on the operator, but generally are rather low for guided tours.
Easy to explore on your own. It is easy to rent a car if you are over 24 and have had a valid license for at least 2 years. The roads are in perfect condition and the traffic is not too tight.
