This trip is about 140 km long and will take the most of a day but don't worry we will make sure that there are a few good breaks along the way. The market in San Mateo closes at 14:00, so you have to leave in the morning from home to get the most out of the trip.
We drive towards Las Palmas on the highway and pass the airport, then we turn to Telde where we drive through the town and follow the road to Valsequillo and San Mateo.
All the way from Telde we will pass through interesting and beautiful green areas with a lots of flowers and trees. Especially the big "Weeping willows" and "gum trees" (those we know as houseplants at home) which stand along the streets throughout the trip.
When we have come through "Las Vegas" - yes we are going far way around - then we will see the many almond trees that are recognizable by the black strain.
The tour continues through a few small towns and soon we can see San Mateo down on the right hand side.
In the local restaurants you can enjoy a lunch or just quench your thirst, and on the square to the halls - on the other side of the road, there are often various events or dancing to live music and we are all welcome to have a dance.
Our next stop is at the vantage point "Bandama" where we can see the volcano crater, where apparantly there still lives a hermit, and from Bandama you can see the all over Las Palmas including the golf course " Bandama" and on a clear day you can see all the way to Fuerteventura.
