The drive up through the forest is gorgeous. Crossed from East Coast in the pouring rain and went through the tunnel into glorious sunshine. The rainbows in the Caldera below were spectacular. The Cumbercita is a view point so you don't need to venture very far from there. Book at space at the tourist office or online and you can... More

If you only do one thing while on La Palma, make it the visit to the Caldera where the views are spectacular.

Amazing walks into the heart of the crater. Note some walks need a good head for heights, but all paths are quite wide and there is a 2 km short walk to a view point suitable for all of the family, not recommended in the rain when it can become slippery, remember to book the parking on line or at...

As we hadn't booked in advance online to park at the mirador la Cumbercita (just 12 spaces per day) we parked at the visitor centre and took a taxi up (flat rate 8 euros per taxi, share with other walkers if you can). Be warned - if you don't enjoy fairground rides then you may not feel well as the... More

Fantastic views even for non walkers and great information available. Best to book in advance as limited parking. Due to age factor and that we were only going for a quick look we were kindly given an hour's entry which was sufficient for our limited needs. A much clearer day than our previous visit in 2009. Such clear air, so... More

You can bookkv a free parking slot (only 18 are available) at the end of the road from the information centre on the LP3 or take a 9 euro taxi to the same spot. There are 3 different walks from the viewpoint so plan ahead and check the weather forecast because the view inside a cloud is somewhat limited. In... More

Words cannot discribe the variety you come across in this park. We went in with a guide. (available in at least spanish, english, german and dutch). The guide knows so much about the park, your experience will definitely be less enjoyable without one.

Amazing journey up the mountain. If you get a day with good visibility it must be stunning. We had bad visibility but even then it was worth a trip. The nature around is speechless.

This was a NICE experience but not awesome.It is so large that when you are on an organised trip you only see a small fraction.I Spoke to a park ranger who said you need to walk for hours to really appreciate it.The short walk we did was similar to walking a simple levada on Madeira.The views were OK.
