Re: Caminito del Rey

They seem to have added the agency and business links now on the reservation front page. As it is still all in Spanish this is a bit confusing for non Spanish speakers untill the other languages get installed.... A new page opens and towards the bottom look for “CAMINITO DEL REY (WEB)” click on “Com...

Re: Caminito del Rey

Thanks for that extra info, I'll update the pages... I have wallked the path 8 times since it opened (last time last week) and I turned around 5 times previously without issue at the suspension bridge.... I have a feeling that this not turning around business is a way to get people to pay for the bu...

Re: Caminito del Rey

Hi, in the Frequent questions bit on the website there is this..... The actual website is not badly put together really and all the info is there in Spanish and English.... the big issue is with the booking portal and the lack of information given out by the Malaga council.....

Re: Caminito del Rey

Hi all, just to clarify... The Caminito won't close.... The job to run it was put out to tender and the Malaga council decided a couple of days ago who won the project.... There were 8 companies who put in a tender and the winner put over 300,000 euros a year as its offer.... Sando (the company that...

Re: Processionary Caterpillars

This year in Grazalema they are at plague proportions, (even after chemical sparaying by airplane 3 years ago)... The chemicals used were organophoshates and diesal oil... It destroyed everything apart from the hibernating caterpillars in the ground from previous years so now we have a plague again....

Re: Caminito del Rey

Hi Gerry, you don't need big old hiking boots.... Good walking shoes/tennis are fine... The two boardwalks are fairly level and the forest path inbetween them is a well made path... It's not like hiking in rugged mountain terrain.. Looks like all the places are filled now right up to the end of this...

Re: Caminito del Rey

I'm trying to find out why they are only giving permits to enter from the Ardales side and not from El chorro side... The nice people at the diputación of malage won't tell me over the phone.... Also It seems very odd that every weekend is fully booked within a few hours of the system opening... Met...

Re: Caminito del Rey

You are welcome... :) @ashtondav.... Really are you sure that they turned up at one of the entry points and got instant access? If so that's really interesting as I have had a lot of emails from people who have tried that and didn't get in and were turned away... Some thoughts here.. http://www.cami...
