Our recommendation if you are travelling with minors, or if you are looking for a soft adventure expirience is  Las Maravillas del Guejar (If you go on holidays or Sunday, you will find many people).

Some details about ARENALES: A trekking of  1:30 hours to reach the first waterfall. More experienced hikers can reach two more waterfalls. It is the least crowded trail of the region's attractions and the most recommended by Frontera Travel. This day get ready for a late lunch, type 2:30 pm. We'll bring you a good snack for the road.

 

Some details about MARAVILLAS DEL GUEJAR: It is the most popular destination in the area and traditionally the most visited. By car you reach the first pool and you do not need physical preparation.
