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


San José de Los Llanos is located at an altitude of over 1000 m, set in a Canary Island pine forest that was reforested in the middle of the 20th century. 

Reforestation with Canary Island pines was undertaken with the aim of restoring the slopes that had been cleared over the course of history. However, in the humid conditions that are common in this area, the ideal vegetation is actually monteverde. 

This is the reason why the pine forest in this area is mixed, meaning that the pines grow alongside faya (Morella faya), tree heath (Erica arborea) and acebiño (Ilex canariensis). 

This recreational area is located almost outside the limits of the Special Nature Reserve, which is why the landscape also retains its rural features. For example, next to the recreational area you will find the village of San José de Los Llanos, where agriculture still plays an important role.


  • 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.
