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


Llano de Los Viejos Recreational Area is located at an altitude of 800 metres, surrounded by the laurel forest of Monte de Las Mercedes, one of the most representative ecosystems of Anaga Rural Park.

The forest is always verdant thanks to the moisture provided by the winds, and is rich in biodiversity. The most common plant species include laurel (Laurus novocanariensis), til (Ocotea foetens) and viñatigo (Persea indica). As for the fauna, this area is home to several of the Canary Islands’ endemic birds, such as the laurel pigeon and Bolle’s pigeon.

Vehicle access is via a short stone-paved track from the asphalt road. 

There are waymarked walking routes that start and finish here.


  • 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.
