Use of the recreational areas is permitted during daylight hours only (between sunrise and sunset).


La Tahona is a recreational area bathed by the trade winds on the northern slopes of Tenerife at an altitude of 1100 metres above sea level. 

Here, the abundant misty rain brings moisture and freshness to the area and keeps the temperatures mild in summer and in winter. 

Under these environmental conditions, a “mixed” Canary Island pine forest thrives, the pine trees growing alongside typical monteverde species such as faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis). The dense forest and its understorey make for a very shaded environment. 

However, shrubs and herbs thrive where gaps appear in the forest cover. Examples include corazoncillo (Lotus campylocladus) and jara (Cistus symphytifolius), with colourful flowers that are easy to spot along the edges of the forest paths and tracks. 

Flitting amongst the branches you will see chaffinches, chiffchaffs, blue tits and other species of birds that are common in these natural spaces. 


  • 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.
