Lagunas de Ruidera, Ruidera
(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Take a walk or bike ride around Lagunas de Ruidera, and then hop in the cool water for a refreshing dip. As you float in the tranquil lakes, gaze up at majestic red bluffs dotted with small evergreens. Explore white water rapids, thundering waterfalls ending in placid aquamarine pools, and underwater caves of emerald water shaded by the rocks. Hike up to the lookout point for views of the oasis and mesas in the distance. Bring along a picnic to enjoy lakeside--locals enjoy the manchego cheese and jamón plentiful in La Mancha. Extend your visit by staying at a shady campsite alongside the rapids, or in one of several antique La Mancha windmills that have been converted to hotels. Plan to see Lagunas de Ruidera and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ruidera family vacation planner.

  • There is not much that can be added to this Natural Park. The visit in low season is highly recommended by the quiet and human because you could dedicate more importantly and less to other things like parking and crowds. It is the visit to the Quebrada del Toro with Esteban and Mariano, very attentive and effective guides that make the visit in an adventure of Speleology.
