An awesome day route in nature! The hike to Cascada del Chorrón passes through a beautiful waterfall, a cave, and an amazing viewpoint. Additionally, there are countless animals along the route 🙂

Length: 11 KM
Time: about 5 hours
The first half of the route includes an uphill climb, however, you will spot the waterfall in the first part of your walk. Once you reach to the top, expect amazing 360 degrees view over the entire area. On a clear day you might be able to see the coast!
On the way back/down watch your step because in some areas it can get pretty steep. In addition, there are areas with a lot of vegetation so watch out where you place your feet.
The village of Villamayor is small but very cute. Before or after the hike you can have a quick stroll in the area or have a coffee/beer in one of the bars!
