  • Ideal for exploring the sierra and exercise. Reach the Salto del Tabaquillo is the reward at the end of the tour but on the way can enjoy the landscape, the aromas of mountain herbs and the murmur of the water that descends by the bed of the Brook. I did it twice and the first was climbing up the bed of the Brook, option more difficult than the traditional route.

  • The walk to reach the jump isn't very hard but I would not recommend it for very elderly or small children because there is the risk of falls by having to walk through rocks and cross small streams. It takes half an hour from the beginning of the trail to reach the waterfall and the other for the return. The jump is very cute in a nice closed setting. On the wall opposite the waterfall there is a wall that can scale to take pictures of the place. Do not miss this visit which can be guided or own-account.

  • It is a trip that can be done by account itself or well, hiring her. We hired her in the nature reserve. Bear in mind that it is a rather demanding, uphill trekking, skipping stones, crawling through narrow cracks in the mountain, etc. There are 4 or 5 breaks before the jump of Tabaquillo and when you arrive, you can choose to make climbing on the rock wall of the jump. Take shelter beyond that heat, make up always is fresh, and always water and a snack, the bottle can be charged different jumps that are reaching the Tabaquillo. Recommended!
