  1. My time in La Palma was my favourite ever holiday. Such a beautiful place with welcoming, beautiful people who welcomed me and made me part of their family.
    So sad what’s going on this week – I’ve driven on those roads. Not really a surprise, but still a tragedy. Prayers for the people there. Wish I could be there now.

  2. I don't know how to explain the beauty of La Palma without falling short. We have seen the sunrise in the Roque de los Muchachos over a sea of ​​clouds, we have walked among volcanoes, my children have bathed in a waterfall in the middle of a laurel forest, we have visited its natural pools, its Cueva Bonita and beaches as spectacular as that of Los Nogales. The most beautiful of the wonderful Canary Islands. Let's take care of this Biosphere reserve. Responsable tourism.

  3. I have returned from La Palma and I feel fulfilled having been surrounded by so many beautiful landscapes and the kindness of its people. Walking it is the most beautiful and there are beautiful routes to do it: volcanoes, with a wonderful lunar landscape; the births of Marcos and Cordero, essential; Cubo de la Galga, to be among giant ferns and laurisilva; La Cumbrecita, seeing the Taburiente caldera from above... a true spectacle of nature. There are also small towns like San Andrés with a special charm worthy of a stop and visit. But, we have to go back, go back to see the stars with a specialist and have him tell us about those clear skies, go back to explore the Caldera de Taburiente inside it and go back to visit more corners that in a week has been impossible. Thanks to all the inhabitants who have made us enjoy their island so much. I will be back.

  4. We have spent a week on the island of La Palma at the beginning of May 2021 and IT IS A WONDER OF ISLAND with so many different landscapes, and where you can do a multitude of activities in contact with nature such as trekking along the Marcos y Cordero Route, the Route of the Volcanoes, the Route el Cubo de la Galga, the Caldera de Taburiente, the Mirador de la Cumbrecita, the Roque de los Muchachos, etc…. You can also dive around the entire island, with SPECTACULAR SEA BEDS and a variety of INCREDIBLE SEA FAUNA. Good island, good landscapes, good gastronomy, good desserts, good wines and very good people. Looking forward to returning !!!

  5. I've been to la Palma 8 times. The last time in June 2019. The initial enthusiasm has somewhat evaporated during the last vacation. The many mountain bikers were particularly disturbed on the narrowest hiking trails (especially only downhill with Karacho). E.g. on the Camino Real hiking trail. And the beach of Los Cancajos was always cloudy. That was not so before. A very old gentleman said that the cruise ships have their rubbish ground up in the water, which is understandable. I have now been to Madeira 3 times and slowly the desire to visit La Palma is growing again. Maybe this winter.

  6. Lovely guides both Saray and Jonás. The most interesting and precise indications. Exquisite service. Great value for money.
    We will repeat for sure

  7. I visited this unknown island for the first time in 1983 with my "brother". It was the time of military service and I had to do it in Tenerife, another wonder of nature. At the end of my stay at the Mayor's Office (Plaza Weiler) a fellow palmero invited me to accompany him to his house in Los Llanos de Aridane. Instead of returning to Cantabria, which was the most logical thing to do, I ventured to accompany him. Until today, I conquer his family, today I feel mine, the place and the rest of the inhabitants. Words cannot express the feelings that this island transmits to you. You have to visit her and get into her routine. The rest is done by the environment that catches you. Apart from all the innumerable charming places, which are many more than those known at a tourist level, there are its towns and people who invite you to participate in their quiet life and end up capturing you with their simple charms. Tranquility prevails, peace, tranquility, landscape harmony - people, etc.
    After 38 years, I can say that the appearance of its landscape has barely changed, which you appreciate as the plane approaches and that I have a fabulous family and a very large group of spectacular friends.
    As a recommendation I can invite you to visit the Puerto de Tazacorte natural and gastronomic paradise, El Remo, go down the Esperilla and eat some squid, Los Llanos de Aridane, have breakfast at the kiosk in the square, Las Manchas, eat in El Secadero, El Paso, Fuencaliente., Eat the Salt Garden, etc, etc, etc ……………………… ..
    If paradise existed, it was not far from La Palma Island. Pride of the palm trees as an example of love for the land raises us. It is the Island of simplicity. You don't need flaunting to stand out. The simple and natural is what stands out the most in La Palma
    Too bad about the few flights and hotel rooms that are weighing on the development of this island so rich in everything (water, sun, landscapes, places, locals, customs, celebrations, etc.). Great known to Europeans and so unknown to Spanish
    Do not miss the opportunity to know the Isla Bonita. You can never forget her

  8. A wonderful island where you can disconnect and relax in tune with nature. The change of landscapes from green in the north to black in the south. The clarity of its waters, and the "murky" of its roads. Everything on La Palma is a landscape to admire.

    Tourist information has to improve, for example, when visiting one of the information points they did not inform us about the days or hours of interpretation centers, markets, ... which led us on occasion to have to return twice, or even to make trips in vain. I encourage you to keep improving.

  9. In the autumn of 2000 we were for the first time on La Palma, in the west, in Puerto Naos. We fell in love with the island immediately and will be returning here for the 27th time in May. As retirees, we are lucky enough to be able to come here twice a year and are always looking forward to it. We have now known so many nice people here that some of them have become friends. It is always a great experience to visit Isla Bonita. A tip for those looking for relaxation to switch off or be active here. It is worth it!!

  10. Back in the 80:s I traveled from Barlovento, La Palma to my birth country, Finland, to do my military service there as a teenager.
    However, now in middle age we keep visiting La isla bonita with my dear wife.
    We hope to keep doing it, when health and budget continue to allow us so.
    The island has developed a lot from the 60s…80s as I knew it as a child then.
    Truly a gem in the Atlantic.
    It would be good if the local tourist authorities also targeted good and hard working Nordic people as seasonal visitors.
    I would say that families from Finland, Estonia, and for sure also from St.Petersburg would fit in very well on La Palma.
    Maybe even better than the abundant central Europeans!

  11. I always explore the island by motorcycle. Since 2016 I have been coming to La Palma at least once a year and without it no longer works.
    In the beginning I stayed for a week, but that is clearly not enough. There should be at least two, because there is so much to discover.
    I'm already looking forward to my next soul vacation there 😉

  12. For 22 years I spend my holidays in the cold season like in the Canaries, 15 years ago the first time in La Palma. This island is the most beautiful for me, nature stops there wonderful moments and prospects ready, people are relaxed and there is a strong volcanic energy noticeably, which is first unfamiliar, but then has a revitalizing effect. I need at least two weeks every year La Palma and would like to live there someday

  13. This year is the eighth time the second most beautiful in Hawaii island in the world. After Cacncajos, Bremen Well, focal length Alta, Fuencaliente, and El Paso we return to Los Cacncajos back to the great hotel Hack data San Jorge. Except for some guided u. not guided hikes, we will also enjoy the beach incl. fish restaurant sweaters. A walk to and in Santa Cruz is also one of a rounded holiday.

  14. This year we will spend our main vacation on La Palma for the 21st time and we are really looking forward to it! It is always coming home for us and we hope that it will be like that for a long time! Anyone who thinks they know La Palma after just a one-week vacation simply has no idea! We have already had rainy hiking holidays in the Allgäu, Berchtesgadener Land and Chiemgau and were rewarded with sun again next time! La Palma is also La Isla verde - the green island and nothing comes from nothing, it just has to rain sometimes! For us, La Palma is a must once a year, there is no way around it!

  15. A beautiful island.
    She is very versatile and a great hiking island. Jutta Buckle:
    That's it rains probably normal. The weather is not ordered and then wait a minute nature. Your comment that you can not migrate well on La Palma is a pure lie.
    Isla Bonita I love you!

  16. We were in March 2019 for the first time in La Palma. We wanted to hike a week and La Palma was recommended to us for it. My conclusion, never again, I can NOT recommend hiking enthusiasts unless he loves to walk in the rain. duration of rain a week makes no temper, my most bad tester walking holiday after 30 years. Island, hosts and people very endearing.

  17. In August 1989, we had spent for the first time our vacation on La Palma and had fallen in love with the island after 3 weeks. Our first Feriendomiezil was the Apartmento Montebrena in Brena Baja from where we explored from the island. We have in the years run from time to time elsewhere
    usual, while the island very well met. For 10 years, we are now at the Finca Milflores in LaPunta as good as home.
    Thanks to all hikers who have accompanied us in these 30 years on the Isla Bonita. It was an honour !!!!
    On April 24, we will come with friends for 5 weeks after La Palma and then we will celebrate our anniversary 30 years La Palma.

  18. In August 1989, we were the first time on La Palma. The Apartmentos Montebrena in Brena Baja we learned the Isla Bonita know and love .Meanwhile have passed 30 years and we were every year at least 1 time on the island. La Palma has already become a second home for us. We have a lot of friends for La Palma can begeister during this long period. Today (10 years) we spend our vacation in the dream Finca Milflores In LaPunta. Thanks to all who have supported us in these 30 years with walking tours !!!!!!
    On April 24, we start again with friends on our beloved Isla Bonita, because 30 years La Palma must finally be celebrated.

  19. Hello, since 2000, I am regularly in stock Palma for hiking. Overall, already 14 times I have visited this beautiful island. Now I was from 8.1. here until 22/01/2019. For three years I come in January because it is a little more bearable with the mountain bikers this month.
    Unfortunately, I can not see that is anything done against the destruction of the trails by mountain bikers.
    It is simply crying, some paths are not had because the oh-so-cool stand only on the brake.
    I very much hope that at last time something happens z.Bsp. Fines are imposed, or wheels are collared and so the black sheep are converted, because there are certainly mountain bikers who drive only on designated routes.
    Please do finally something that I continue to come forth can go hiking here. Many Thanks !

  20. Stunning island, spectacular scenery and taken care of environment. We have gone several times and hope to return. La Palma has it all: endless trails, hot valleys and cool mountains. A sea of ​​clouds envelops its peaks and forests of pine and laurel forest slopes.
    Colors, flavors and brutal feelings for the more adventurous.
    The most important thing is that it is not overcrowded like other islands and is what makes it even more charming.

  21. We were the first time on La Palma in 1986 and fell in love with this island. But then it took another 10 years until we were back on the island. we spent our vacation in April and November on Isla Bonita ten years.
    Es ist immer ein Traum den Urlaub auf der schönsten Insel Europas zu verbringen. Mittlerweile wohnen wir im wunderschönen Ostallgäu bei Füssen und genießen in dieser traumhaften Landschaft unseren Ruhestand. Diese Berge und die vielen Seen ohne Meer hat sehr viel Ähnlichkeit mit La Palma. Ich denke das wir in absehbarer Zeit die Insel wieder besuchen werden. Ich kann jedem der die Natur liebt diese wunderschöne Insel nur empfehlen. Es ist keine reine Badeinsel. Diese wunderschöne Insel muss man Erwandern und mit dem Bike oder Auto erkunden. Viel Spaß für alle die auf diese Trauminsel reisen. Sehr höfliche und liebenswerte Menschen.

  22. Kommen seit 2001 jährlich 1 bis 2 mal auf die Insel. Haben hierbei immer die Ferienhäuser bewußt gewechselt, um jedesmal neue Eindrücke von der Unterkunft mitzunehmen. Wir wurden bisher nie enttäuscht. Besonders nette Gastgeber findet man in den Unterkünften des “Tourismus Rural”. Von der Insel ganz zu schweigen. Überwältigende Natur, gutes Wetter und Menschen, die sich im Gegensatz zu unserem hektischem Alltag noch ein wenig Ruhe bewahren konnten. Hier läßt es keine Wünsche offen, eben nicht umsonst eine der schönsten Inseln auf unserem Kontinent. Es ist wie schon bei den anderen Betrachtern empfunden, man steigt aus dem Flieger und denkt man ist zu Haus angekommen. Wir hoffen, daß wir dieses Glück, einige Wochen im Jahr auf der Insel verweilen zu können, noch lange haben.

  23. Buenos días. Mi visita a La Palma ha superado mis expectativas. En cuanto a lugares, naturaleza, clima, cultura etc… Sus lugares tan pictóricos son impresionantes. Los Nacientes de Marcos y Cordero una ruta que no se pueden perder, La caldera, los Volcanes y un largo etc. He quedado maravillada de la Isla bonita. Tan solo hay una cosa que no me ha satisfecho. Canarias tiene algo especial para mi y para muchos de la Península, y ese algo es que no hay IVA, sino IGIC, pero a algunos restaurantes o cafeterías eso les debe de dar igual. En estos 15 días, hemos tomado café en varios restaurantes, y cada uno nos ha cobrado el café al precio que le ha dado la gana, y la verdad es q es mucho más caro el café en la isla que en Madrid. En el mismo restaurante, nos cobraron el café el primer día a 0.60 céntimos y el segundo día a 1.30 céntimos. En otras cafeterías nos han cobrado el café a 1.80 cada café y eso me parece un poco abusivo. Así, lo único que van a conseguir, es que el turismo Español, deje de visitar las islas y que se quede sólo en turismo extranjero. He vivido en Canarias, en Lanzarte, en Tenerife varios meses por motivo de trabajo, y estoy enamorada de las Islas Canarias, pero desde hace unos años, están abusando de los precios y va a ser imposible seguir visitandolas. Entiendo que la vida suba, pero razonablemente sobretodo como bien he dicho al principio, porque no hay un impuesto muy elevado, a diferencia de la Península.
    Otherwise, I'm delighted with the island, and everything I have ever visited.
    A real pleasure to have gone to La Palma, a pity that there are people who want to get rich in two days and then a bad reputation for exorbitant prices. A shame to see so many wonders marred by occasional abuse.

  24. We have gone twice on La Palma.
    I can only say, here we would like to live mainly.
    One of the most beautiful spot on this
    Globe.
    Air calculated, very nice
    Islanders simply fantastic

  25. Hello:
    In the month of June contract a Pack of 5 days, I loved the treatment and the professionalism of the guides. I hope to return next year.

  26. Also we get into our second home for 20 years
    Puerto Naos and now have many friends on the island. You can really fall in love with the island! Recently, we went there twice. In the spring of 2 weeks and in the autumn 6 - 10 weeks. It's easy to be here wonderful! Hopefully we can experience a few years still.

  27. For over 20 years we spend our holidays in La Palma. It is the best relaxation from the stress of everyday life for us. We always stay in the facility Alexsandra in El Paso.
    Also this year we have already booked again in June and September.
    One can say that La Palma has become our second home.

  28. I was now for the second time on La Palma and we have now been able to drive around the whole island in two visits, incl. Up going to Rocce de Muchachos. The diversity of nature is indescribable, just this spring, when everything blooms in purple, yellow and white, interspersed with orange nasturtiums, which sprawls along the way. What remains now? Of course, to wander the island, in all their diversity, sometimes lazing on the beach and eat well at the Carpe Diem, Tazacorte!
    I'm looking forward to my next visit, the next weather and the next impressions!
    Hasta la vista, La Palma!

  29. We come now are 29 years on the Isla Bonita.Zuletzt from 03.01.-31.01.2018.Wir go and visit the Finca Milflores in la Punta whole on 700m Höhe.Die island is a dream for all seasons.
