Don't go to Spain.  Teide is actually on Tenerife.  It is a volcanic island and the mountain is well worth a visit.  I've been to the top on a number of occasions. It is about 3700 metres high.

Good job I have slow kettle!
La Palma is nice. I've not been to Tenerife, I thought it was more barren rock than that video shows.

At the top the ground is hot and there is a heavy sulfur smell from the lava.
As Jim says, you take a cable car most of the way and then walk the last bit to the top.

Interestingly every time I've been to the top there has always been at least one nun on her knees praying.  Maybe she's looking for the way down Undecided

Indeed not, Tenerife is very vegetated especially the northern half. The drive up to the base of Teide passes through some very wooded areas and can get quite cool in the shade. Over the rest of the northern parts banana plantations abound, making them one of Tenerife's major exports (mostly to mainland Spain, you won't see many in the UK) in their economy banana's are very important alongside tourism.  
If you want unending sun then, visit the brash "boozy Brit's on holiday" southern Playas de las Americas. For something more refined try Puerto De la Cruz, which was once very popular but, the weather is a bit unpredictable, a lot of rain being not uncommon. Since the building up of the south Puerto has become sadly rather un-kept and shabby -not unlike some of the south coast seaside towns of Sussex- But I'd still sooner go to Puerto than Playas de las Americas any day.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
