Los Gemelos, Santa Cruz

(140+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Following a short hike at Los Gemelos, you'll have the opportunity to gaze upon the beauty of two ancient lava craters. The trail, which also has a side path, continues for up to 723 m (2,372 ft). It takes you through lush green vegetation, which fills the craters today. Watch for an abundance of tortoises crawling in the craters. Because the path crosses a variety of terrain, be sure to wear good shoes. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Santa Cruz holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Los Gemelos and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
