Caldera de Bandama Reviews
The explorer stayed here for a week and the museum has made this it's raison d'etre. Worth a visit if you an hour to spend more »
Worth the winding drive up the mountain in order to experience the views of the volcanic crater. Views of the small towns below were also worth noting. Public bathrooms were closed. more »
There are two trails. The first one is downhill, through the gate close to the cafe. It takes approx 1,5 h to go down and back. Full of lizards, nice flora and views. It's ok. The second trail goes around the 'caldera' and is much much longer but the view is awesome since it goes always atop of the ridge. This one can end with the ascend to the peak.
Amazing time going there by motorcykle, to bad it was raining But it was Good anyways. Id say the ride there were actually Better then the siting itself. Oh Well, you Will enjoy it!
