  • There is nothing better than to visit la Orotava and La Orotava Valley. The village is quiet and beautiful. It is worth stopping to stroll through its cobbled streets and visit the botanical gardens yn adjoining Park. The Valley of la Orotava is wonderful and if you get sunset conn the sea of clouds, it is absolutely mesmerizing.

  • It is very nice and great views... the island is amazing, always advisable to rent a car because it has thousand sites that see. Inform you a little online before coming to blind and excursions is better to check prices before you meet the first because there is much ready! This site has seen is very tropical as Hawaii but in tiny.

  • I love to go to the Valley of la Orotava, always fresh, green, full of plantations of Canary Island banana, Palm trees, shrubs with flowers. It is much more populated than 20 years ago but still charming, among them La Orotava villages. We ate very well in La Duquesa and very cheap, with which even we knew better, take a delicious barraquito in the village and made nice photos. The people we met were the kindest and lovely, with a great calm and cheerful mood.
