Wonderful to see what has been achieved with a former landfill site. Definitely not to be missed. We did the bus tour and got free entrance but we'll worth the usual 6 euros.

We were very pleasantly surprised when we visited the Palmetum. It is a beautiful, clean and well kept ecological plant park. And compared to some other parks on the island, it was cheap (about 3-4 euros/person). There are many nice look-out points over the sea...More

Hi. We stayed in Costa Adeje,and buses to Santa Cruz are easy.Takes about an hour and cheap enough. Once you get to Santa Cruz terminal, it's 10 minutes walk along the seafront. Enjoy.
