RECOMMENDATIONS TO MAKE THE CAMINITO DEL REY

Here are some tips so you do not miss anything when making the Caminito del Rey and enjoy it.

The first thing to keep in mind is that to make the Caminito del Rey it is necessary to have an entrance to access it. It is a visit controlled by security and to avoid crowds. If you stay at our Hotel Antequera 4 * we will manage your ticket in less than 24 hours and we also have a special Caminito del Rey promotion that includes accommodation, entrance, breakfast, lunch and spa circuit.

When preparing this experience you have to think about what you should carry in your backpack. It is important to bring water or energy drink, something to eat such as chocolates, fruit or nuts, choose a suitable clothing for the weather (especially a comfortable shoe) and we recommend you wearing sunscreen and / or a hat to protect yourself from the sun (especially in summer time).

If you have vertigo or reduced mobility, we do not recommend doing this activity that, as we indicated, although it is not dangerous because the road is well equipped, if it requires a certain skill and the height makes it counterproductive for people who suffer in the heights.

For the return after making the Caminito del Rey it is very important to take into account that the route is linear, not circular, which means that you must ensure the return to the starting point by your own means. It is simple, there is a shuttle bus service between the north (Ardales) and south (El Chorro, Álora) or vice versa that makes it easier for visitors to move to their starting point. For more information about schedules and routes, see the attached document or question at our reception, where our staff will be happy to help you and answer all your questions.

Once you enter the walkway you will not find spaces for eating, so you should either have lunch before or after starting the road, or take food to take it during the tour. This you can plan according to the time you are going to make the visit. And although it seems like a trivial warning, we also like to remind our clients that there are no bathroom areas during the tour.

Finally, it seems important to remind you of some prohibitions to consider:
Access to children under 8 years of age is not allowed, nor can children be held in their arms, so if they do not have the age or ability to travel, it is not recommended that they come ... they should wait a few years to enjoy it!

Backpacks or bags should not be too bulky and you can not use sticks of selfies because it hampers the transit of visitors, especially at certain points of the route. Therefore, you can not enter with baby carriages, baby carriers, wheelchairs or with any accessory that could hinder a possible evacuation.

You can not do the route with flip flops, barefoot or of course with heels. Keep in mind the difficulty and danger of the journey!

It is also not allowed to use umbrellas, so if you are going to visit during the rainy season, it is advisable to bring a rain jacket.

You can not light fires, smoke any type of substance or drink alcoholic beverages during the tour.

For the safety of visitors, the Caminito del Rey has rules such as not leaving the authorized route, heed the security warnings, not to enter the tunnels of the canals, not to go with animals and not to bathe in the river and in its pools.
And of course there are basic rules for the conservation of this space, such as not tearing up plants, not painting, not damaging rocks and other geological elements ... In general, it is about having a bit of common sense and enjoying the experience without damaging a space so unique that it has taken thousands of years to acquire that aspect that makes it unique.

And if you have any questions, you can ask at the entrance, look for it in the Caminito del Rey's official website or contact the organization so they can inform you more accurately.
