To do this in tmux, you do
(that is an 'L'). This assumes you have left Ctrl-B as your activation key.
If you want to use the same keypresses as screen, then add the following to your
set-option -g prefix C-a bind-key C-a last-window
The first sets Ctrl-A as your activation key, the second says Ctrl-A after activation should go to the last window.
Paul's answer is correct, but it seems to leave you without a way to type ^A.
See this thread for details, but essentially you can do this to get a
C-a (^A) if you need one:
bind-key v send-prefix
Now if you type
C-a v you'll get a ^A.
