Infrared view of Los Cancajos on the bottom and color at the top from a cliffside path looking northward. Los Cancajos is La Palma's eastside tourist lodging center. Here's the Trip Advisor guide to lodging. Most of the eastside hotels, condos, and aparthotels were located in this area. It's about a five minute drive from the airport. The area is carved into the hillside, so has steep streets and offers dramatic views of the ocean eastward. Further north up the shore (and in the distance in the color shot) is Santa Cruz de la Palma, the capital. Many of the people staying in our hotel walked into Santa Cruz, but we chose to drive.
