I loved it!! Wear comfortable shoes and fresh clothes as they have to do a climbing hike, it makes everyone is not difficult if tiring hahaha. The roads to get there are very good all well signposted.

If you have a 4x4 vehicle and you like the adventure you can follow the route on the same route passing through beautiful places and if you are lucky to see a family of guanscos run. However, the conditions of the route change and it becomes a narrow footprint, by which it must be climbed carefully, until reaching the highest point of 3100 meters.
If you like mountain and nature, don't forget to visit it. The way to get there is pure stone so think about it if you go by car (you can, but I recommend going slowly). The hill is small, but seeing so many colors is very very nice. If you're going to raise it, very carefully, the stones are small and slide.
