If you want some peace and quiet and a stroll around some lovely gardens/park/waterfalls then please make the effort to visit Parque Tauro and Risco Bello water garden. For some reason they are not widely publicised and as it is a fairly steep walk up from the town you might want to take a taxi or car. The Tauro garden... More

Lovely park, planted up the hill with steep paths leading up to a larger park area. Lots of plants & good views over the town.

a peaceful and green park, ideal for joggers but not too many, a quaint english church at one end, a lovely cafe , ideal for a quite walk around the various levels.

The peaceful heart of Puerto with wide open spaces, teamroom/bar by a secluded pond, and splendid water features. It's not for those with reduced mobility - it's a long, steep climb. Get a taxi at least to get there - it's not expensive - and it's all downhill after that.

We enjoyed an uphill stroll through the park. It was quiet and clean and peaceful with good views back down to the coast. There is a terrace café at the top with good (of course) coffee and more lovely views. Pleasant way to spend an hour or so if you like walking.

This was a good local park with a small cafe and toilets. Collect the key if you need to use them. Lots of runners about so if you are just wandering about beware.

We walked around Parque Taoro wherein is the English Church (Iglesias Anglicana) and a memorial garden to the air disaster of 1980. The park is laid out with walks and trees but there is no grass or under planting so there are large areas of bare red earth. At a couple of spots are what geologists call 'Aa'. These are... More

I love this park, it is large and there is the difference in altitude providing wonderful views. I like to sit in Risco Bello cafe and enjoy a glass of their lovely mango juice rather than have their lovely sweet cakes and coffee. And on top there is the All Saints Anglican Church, gorgeous building with wonderful stained glass windows.... More
