For a walk in the forest choose another place as this is a place for tour groups mainly coming from Teneriffe. There are pic nic tables and bathrooms. There is a short walk aound the forest if you are short of time.
You can park here and start your hiking trips here. It is not a place to stay but a place to start.

This is one of the classic places to start a walk up to Alto Garajonay through the laurisilva forest as there’s a small visitor centre, cafe, toilets, a children’s play area, parking and several signposted walks starting from here. It’s also the site of an ephemeral lake, though despite the moisture and damp throughout the cloud forest it’s clear it rarely if ever floods. Not such an exciting place to start from though if the whole of the Garajonay park is wreathed in thick low cloud, and even less so when the Cafe is closed for what’s obviously extensive refurbishment. Our whole large group pined for the cafes con leche on which we’d set our hearts - and the dulces - and spent a few minutes checking out the information boards in the small visitors centre, then set off into the clouds. Probably a fine place for a leisurely start on a sunny day, but NB there’s a reason why the vegetation is so lush at the top of the island!

Its a place to start hikes from, but actually spending time there...no. Don't get its why so many busses stop here.

We were only here for a short time as part of an island tour. This wax myrtle and tree heather forest is unique to La Gomera, and is truly luxurious. There is a nice trail which is both well signposted and informative.
