La Caldera is located in the upper reaches of the Orotava Valley, at over 1200 m above sea level, in the midst of dense woodland, bathed by the trade winds. 

Although the Canary Island pine is the most abundant species here, it grows alongside other typical monteverde tree species. 

In some areas there are also stone pines, maritime pines and Aleppo pines, which were planted in the mid-20th century. Today the forestry services are gradually replacing these and other exotic pines with native pines and other native monteverde species. 

Nevertheless, the volcanic crater of La Caldera is striking, as it remains bare amidst all the vegetation. According to the older inhabitants of the island, no trees have ever grown there, perhaps because it is an area that is frequently flooded. 


  • Enjoy the local plant and animal life without disturbing it. Be curious but from a safe and respectful distance.
  • Follow the rules and instructions on the signs to avoid disturbance to people and animals.
  • Keep the environment clean and leave no litter behind. Rubbish and cigarette butts must be disposed of in the designated containers.
  • Travel in small groups to keep noise pollution and the impact on the environment to a minimum.  
  • Use the water in the toilets and taps responsibly. Water is a scarce and precious commodity on our island.
