You can easily get to this attraction by public transportation, since it is near Las Palmas. The view is wonderful and there is a cafe near the top where you can have a cup of coffee with a view at day time.

We first drove up to the viewpoint which is nice but we enjoyed the walk around the crater much better. The hike took us less than an hour and we had beautiful views all along the way.

A place worth visiting - probably best viewed from the Pico close by. I’d love to know who lives/works right down in the Caldera itself.

Beautiful gorge with stunning scenery. Very twisty narrow roads that need to be driven with caution.

It's a nice place to visit and the view is really nice, but to be honest, I've expected more. I enjoyed the drive through local roads more than the volcano alone. Also, there were too many people there when we visited.

Take an excursion up to Bandama and you will see this fascinating volcano in the centre part of the island of Grand Canary. Very nice countryside on the way up from Las Palmas town. It takes about 20 minutes to get to the top of...More

Hi. I got off at the stop by the restaurant. When you see the brown sign for the Caldera you’re there - I missed my stop as I was looking to see the Caldera and it isn’t immmediately visible until you get off the bus!
