Description of the route

The route starts to the right of the restaurant "Cruz del Carmen" on the path that descends through Monteverde, crossing several stretches of road until it reaches the village of Las Carboneras. Once here, it continues to Chinamada and finally heads towards Punta del Hidalgo along a path carved into the rock. From this stretch, you can enjoy rugged landscapes and imposing cliffs battered by the Atlantic Ocean.
