The Canary Islands are part of Spain.  There are about 4 main islands off the coast of Morocco.  We spent two weeks on Tenerife.  It has a moderate to warm winter climate and is the vacation destination for many Europeans.  The people are friendly, the scenery beautiful and there is much to see and do.  We also visited the Island of Gomera, the last land Columbus touched before arriving in the New World.  On Tenerife there is also a great Zoo called Loro Park.  It has about 200 species of Parrots as well as a marine dolphin show and penguin display.  Across from our timeshare residence was a beautiful botanical gardens.  We also enjoyed the drive to the Mt. Tiede volcano crater.   It was a great place to vacation.
