Puerto de la Cruz is on the northern coast of Tenerife, the windward side of the mountains facing the cloud bearing trade winds. Consequently, the weather in Puerto de la Cruz is cloudier than the leeward south of the island. Rainfall is, however, low and mainly falls in the winter months between November and February.
There can be persistent clouds between May and July, locally referred to as the 'donkey's belly. However, the weather from late July through August and September usually is warm and sunny. The other good time is during the winter months of January, February and March when the weather is sunny. The evenings in winter can be pretty cool, so you may need a light jacket or cardigan.
The weather of Puerto de la Cruz may suit you if you wish to avoid the south's searing heat and intense sun, as the climate is cooler as a rule.
