  • Recourse in the first week of August with my family, already out of the frenzy of winter break and be able to enjoy more fully the place. We employ in-house eco Los Condores with Juan Carlos and Pamela as guides, both very kind and willing to wait for us, encourage us and attentive to all our needs. The path at the beginning along the course of the River from the place and the rise stopping at each hop that occurs is quite simple. Then is getting more difficult with short climbs but that are not suitable for those who are not accustomed to this type of outputs... The rise continues until you reach the Tabaquillo jump in an ondonada of the mountain which is beautiful. Then you go down and we made climbing over a wall of rock more than 30 meters to finish with a Tyrolean mountains between 80 metres... a unique experience. To take into account the time in this adventure, takes 4-6 hours according to the number of people in the Group and the speed with which it is made, equal worth. Only thing to my point of view as negative is the price that could be a bit less than what they charge!

  • This year we finally did the tabaquillo jump... With Juan Carlos and Pamela (your booth is right next to Isolina (the great Ranger!) For the lovers of trekking and hiking. Also becomes Rappel then pull canopy! The jump is very nice, there are water wells to cool off on the road. Will be about 4/5 hours... go with suitable footwear and clothing that accompany the activity! Recommended 100!
