How a Garachico funicular is great Tenerife news.
Indeed, the Garachico Funicular is one more of Tenerife attractions in the pipeline of never ending positive news.
Innovation for more than Tenerife tourists.
Garrachico city center
This ground breaking idea was announced for the first time in 2012.
At this time, it was the brain child of the Garachico town Mayor José
However, nothing has happened this then.
Now in 2016, the idea of the Funicular cable car that can carry 35 people is in the pipeline again.
Will the heavy financial expense be worth it?
A Funicular has been a world proven means of transport for more than a hundred years. It's clean and will pay for more than its costs over time. It will be of benefit for the entire Garachico municipality. Indeed, a plus for all travelers and tourists...
More details that speak for this modern town investment.
- Easy and fast access from La Villa Garachico central to San Pedro and San Juan del Reparo alias La Culata
- A shortcut to continue on foot to El Tanque for camel rides
- To also reach Santiago del Teide by further hiking faster
- To save time for more both bird watching at the Corona as well at at the Chinyero nature reserves
- Improved infrastructure for about 600 inhabitants of San Juan del Reparo for work or leisure in Garachico

Envision the Garachico Funicular
Imagine you hop onto a cable car like the depicted Teide Telerifico. It will take you through vineyards along picturesque farms. Meantime, Tenerife's most quaint town is nested in a tiny bay by the sea. Mind it was the most important of the island in XVII and in XVIII. You will glimpse its latest port the Garachico Marina that can even accommodate two cruise ships.
What kind of funicular for Garachico?
- One like the elevator type funicular of Lisbon?
- Like the Teide cable cab called Teide telerifico?
It doesn't really matter. However, one like the Funicular de Lisboa may not be practical.
Of course, more things to explore in Garachico are always good news for all who have a holiday home in Tenerife which may be close by.
