Tourist Information

The helpful visitor centre is 5km east of El Paso on the LP-3 highway and offers free general information (be sure to pick up the English Caldera de Taburiente Paths map), detailed maps (including a geological map) as well as guides, an informative and excellent exhibition centre, plus a botanical garden. The centre’s 20-minute film (shown occasionally in English) is worth seeing.

You will need a permit to visit the Mirador de al Cumbrecita; you can apply online but much do so at least three days before your visit.
