The national park is large with many access points. One of the an advance notice needs to be given as only 18 cars can fit. Otherwise taxi from entry point. At roque de los muchachos there is sufficient parking, no advance notice and great views. Well recommended for stop and views but not long walks with smaller children. Our daughter... More

Definitely worth visiting if you book your parking space at visitor's Centre (we booked at 11am for a 2-4pm arrival the same day). There is only one hike appropriate for children starting at Cumbrecitas, all others are too long or strenuous. The pathways were sometimes slippery and a bit scary for inexperienced hikers, but the view was worth it. There... More

We visited Caldera de Taburiente National Park as a part of a full day trip. It was an interesting visit to the visitor's centre but I mostly enjoyed a short hike to Mirador de las Chozas; it was easy enough for also those not in great shape to take this hike and enjoy the beauty of the nature. Next time... More

I love this national Parc a lot. There are so many walks you can do over here. You can walk in the caldera or on the cliffs. Be aware that the weather can change quick, so choose a good day. I went there when there were no clouds at all. It should be on your bucket list of La Palma!

Beautiful park where you can do several walks. We only walked to Lomo de los Chozas but it was wonderful experience. If you are going to La Cumbrecita by car you need to obtain the permit first.

Went here a few times, great walks of various lengths. We drove down the bottom across the dry river bed and up the other side - fascinating

If you like hikes through untouched landscapes with dramatic views you will like this. If you are lucky you will spot wild goats. Crows are more common, and they are used to people, so hold you food tight.

Car park in the edge of the caldera in spectacular location, stating point for well marked out walks, 2 hours to 6 hours.. To visit you can reserve - for free - a space in the small 18 space car park on the Spanish National Parks service website, or through the visitor centre on the main road east of El... More

The visitors centre is on the main road and you must stop and look at the exhibition inside, if you are going to the top then these are the last loos. If you want to go into the park and view the caldera or do some walks then you can do either of the following. Book a parking space at... More
