We took a cab up to Los Brecitos and hiked down to the Parking lot. We took a detour to see the Cascada de Los Colores. It is a wonderful hike with a great variety of views. The first half to the Zona de Acampada...More

This was actually near the end of a 6 hour hike and a lot of people seemed to miss that the coloured fall was to the left of the river facing upstream and stayed by the bigger fall to the right...The water was not running...More

My favourite walk on La Palma during a 7 day holiday. Great views as you walk along the barranco. You will see the stream contained within gradually turn from yellow to orange . As there can be a bit of stepping in and out of...More

It was rather difficult to find the trail description in the internet so the best way is to go to a visitor's center. The trail takes 2,5 hours one way, but is much faster and more pleasant if you don't follow the marks but go...More

This is a lovely but difficult walk through the streams, with lots of clambering over rocks, but again well worth the effort, but you do need to be fairly fit & well equipped, some precipitous views, not for the faint hearted.

La Catarata De Colores: 4hours - 14km long, at 300m altitude. Stunning canyoning (and a bit of bouldering if you want to) through Barranco De Las Angustias surrounded by 1000m walls to reach a colourful waterfall. This is a great way to see the inside...More

A lovely place to stay for a quiet break, well positioned and excellently equipped. Would certainly visit again.

We did this walk from the Barranco de Angustias parking area. We followed the waymarks to the cascada, which does include a lot of up and down hill climbing. The waterfall was slightly smaller than we expected but we were glad we saw it. The...More

The signs make you go up and down on a rather unnecessary detour, and always rejoins the river bed. I guess the river must be pretty big when it rains, but there wasn't much water when I was there so it was much easier to...More

Walk from the Barranco de Augustias parking is waymarked and fairly well maintained. We walked mostly along the barranco, but then followed the path along the edge. It is a bit of a scramble. To get to the waterfall you need to cross at Dos...More

A 7 year old can do the hike. We hiked from the Cascada down to the Parking lot and it took us two hours. I think when you go from the parking lot up to the Cascada it'll take you about three hours. So in total it's going to... More
