Tourism

Tourism is the driving force behind the economy, which also has other sources of income such as port activity - fundamental for both commerce and the services sector -, agriculture, livestock, fishing and, to a lesser extent the industrial sector, limited in practise to small processing centres for goods.
Tenerife receives more than 5,000,000 tourists a year; so the hospitality industry and the services sector generate more than 60% of its GDP.
The statistics for tourism receivers that can be consulted in “Downloads” list the following tourist areas on the island:
Zone 1: Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Zone 2: La Laguna, Bajamar, Punta Hidalgo and Tacoronte
Zone 3: Puerto de la Cruz and rest of the north
Zone 4: The South
