What a great day in Musca valley. I decided no to take a organize tour and do it on my own with my friend using a public bus from Puerto de la Cruz. Very easy to arrange and with Bono card very cheap. From Pto del la Cruz we took bus 325 at 8:40 (3,50€) arriving to Santiago del Teide around 10:00, at 10:30 we took bus 355 (1,10|€) to Nasca village – 5 km of winding scenic route.
Before the descent you can have some refreshment ( I recommend cactus juice) and buy home made products and fruit. From the village where you can book the boat to Los Gigantes (10 €) at the cafes you start your descent about 3 hours. Watch out as some parts can be slippery even on sunny day. The track is interesting and scenic. As the reward we took a swim in crystal clear see before the boat ride . Unfortunately we witnessed the incident when some people with valid ticket were not allowed to board the boat of Masca express as the employees gave the preference to organized tour of about 20 walkers who arrived the last ones! Not fair. The boat trip was max 40 minutes to Los Gigantes from which we took the bus 325 (4.45€) at 17:20 back to Pto de la Cruz. So if you can save 45 -50€ for a organize tour and do it on your own.
