In this work we estimate, for the first time, the travel time values of the visitors of the Parque Nacional del Teide (Tenerife). With this purpose, we use a novel approach in the recreative demand literature based on the estimation of discrete choice models of transport mode. The estimates obtained show that the visitors evaluate the components of the travel time differently and that the travel time values vary according to the sex and age of the visitors. These results are very useful in the assessment of policies that promote the use of more sustainable transport modes for access to natural sites
