What’s the weather like in Los Cristianos in December?
Even though it’s the wettest month of the year, the Los Cristianos weather in December is still very mild and pleasant. Los Cristianos benefits from having a warm Atlantic climate that makes the Canary Islands, and Tenerife in particular, so popular with tourists. In December you can still enjoy the fine beaches of this amazing resort.
Tenerife can be affected by the trade winds that reach the Canary Islands in December and the cooler winter months. Los Cristianos is on the south coast of the island. Resorts here are generally warmer and drier than towns in the north, because the huge Mount Teide in the centre of the island protects it from north east winds and rain.
You’ll need to bring a sweater and light jacket if you visit this month, but showers tend to be light and can pass quickly. The weather in Los Cristianos in December has an average of 139mm of rainfall. The warm winter temperatures and sunshine help to dry any water. The average daytime temperature is 14°C, with chillier days around the 10°C mark. You can still expect an average of ten hours of sunshine this month, which is fantastic for winter. The wind speed is only 13mph on average, making walks along the beaches, promenades and even in the hills enjoyable in December.
