Puerto De La Cruz
What’s the weather like in Puerto de la Cruz in January?
One of the Canary Islands’ original holiday destinations, Puerto de la Cruz sits on the northern coast of Tenerife. The city has a subtropical climate, with long hot summers and short, mild winters. Although January is the winter season in Puerto de la Cruz, you can still expect a good amount of warm and sunny weather. With only the odd short rain shower to worry about, the resort’s a great place to escape the chilly UK weather at this time of year.
In January, the temperature in Puerto de la Cruz reaches an average high of 21ºC in the peak of the afternoon, perfect for sightseeing and exploring. At night, temperatures only dip to 16ºC, so it’s still pleasant for evenings out at the local bars and restaurants, although you might need a light jumper or cardigan. Less than 30mm of rain’s expected across nine wet days, so showers are light and short-lived. If you want to take a dip in the sea, it’s only a few degrees cooler in January compared to summer, at 20ºC.
