We decided to go to this nature reserve having found it on Trip Advisor as being near to our villa, "Tenerife South's hidden gem" and lovely according to previous reviews. It was signposted from the road but the sign posts later disappeared so we parked at the hotel and went in to ask at reception. The receptionist was incredibly rude... More

A great experience and a lovely morning walk through the local nature reserve there in San Blas. We started with a short walk through a historical tunnel experiencing life from time gone by. It has small senarios of life, set up as you walk through the tunnel using all your senses to see, smell, hear, feel etc how life used... More

To understand the history of this island a visit to the reserve and it's museum is a must. An interesting and informative visit that showed how the island developed through a little bit of living history.

We took this tour because we were staying at Sandos San Blas and this was moments from the hotel and would take around 2 hours or so. We were not interested in full/half day tours and this was comparatively a lot cheaper too (Eur 14 approx.). This is a hidden gem and a must do if you are visiting South... More

I wonder how many people stay at the San Blast and miss this exceptional gem. It a weird and wonderful semi desert world, moon like, beautiful and bizarre at the same time. I trekked around it at lunchtime, so it was completely quiet, adding to the ambience, and used a map provided by the hotel. It is an amazing mini... More

We took a tour of the reserve from our hotel, the sandos san blas, which also included an interactive museum type experience which was done well. The reserve itself, just moments from the hotel, was picturesque and we'll worth the visit.

We really enjoyed all aspects of this tour, from the initial surprisingly 'Universal Studios' type experience inside the hotel through the walk and back inside for more detailed information shown as short films. Caution though, the paths outside are very steep and slippery in places. While the young guide dashed on ahead, some of us 'silvertops' in the group took... More
