Wonderful views and good information boards. It took a while to get there through some amazing pine forest, but we had booked a coveted slot in the car park at El Mirador de Cumbrecita for an hour, so we wanted to make the most of it. We had a gentle walk down one of the tracks, educating ourselves as much... More

Fantastic place for 2 days hiking/trekking exploration. During December (after Christmas) this place was basicaly empty. Also camping located within Caldera is really nice and well organized.

I parked at La Cumbrecita having booked it online (for free) the day before. One of the trails, the one to the park camping, was closes so I climbed the Pica Bejenadro and then did the Lomo des Chozas. Both lovely walks, the former being a pretty strenuous ascent. This was a fabulous day. I'd say though that having previously... More

The contrasts on this little island are amazing, in an hour you will be thousands of feet up, the climate will be colder and it is hard to believe you are on the same island, deep green, radiant blue and mist suddenly rolling in. Huge trees and towering mountains, magic.

I did two hikes in the park. The hike on the top rim of the crater would have been excellent if the skies had been clear and blue; but we had brown due to dust/sand from the Sahara desert -- so visibility was poor. You need good quality hiking shoes as the trails are loose pebbles on hard packed dirt... More

Make car park reservations to go see Cumbrecita via internet or via the visitor center in El Paso. The small hike to the "balcony" is nice and good for kids too.

Don't bother going unless you have booked on the Internet. Only 16 parking places so you need to book. Otherwise you can park at the Tourism Centre just off the LP3, and then you need to walk or take a taxi to the upper parking area

The Caldera dominates much of the island, and havin come all the way from the Uk it would be a mistake not to either venture into the caldera or walk on its side. We were part of a group travelling with Ramblers Holidays and had a guided walk which took up much of the day and took us to the... More
