Hiking: trekk along the cliffs of Maro and Cerro Gordo with snorkeling

And a final reward: experience a secret cove!

Hiking in Maro, Málaga

Imagine this: a beautiful summer trail surrounded by natural beauty, passing by cliffs and through a Mediterranean forest. On the way there will be stories, anecdotes, a visit to a Moorish watchtower and trails of all kinds. 

At the end of the trekk, we’ll enter a cove through a secret access point, have an eco-picnic with locally produced snacks, and there will be some time for you to snorkel around in crystalline waters featuring a beautiful seabed, with colorful fish and Mediterranean corals.

Qué, ¿hay ganas o no?

Y es que esta experiencia de barranquismo en Río Verde, en pleno Parque Natural de la Sierra de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama (cerquita de la frontera entre Málaga y Granada), además de ser una de las más buscadas, es la que más disfrutamos nosotros.

Y no es para menos; todo lo que hemos puesto en esa lista de ahí arriba es verdad. Mira->

Material de calidad

Y homologado. Te damos todo lo necesario para que vivas esta experiencia a tope y de forma segura.

Un guía...
que es más que eso

Queremos que entiendas la zona como lo hacemos nosotros. ¿Guía o amigo? Al final ya veremos 😉

Fotos y vídeos muy cañeros

Fotos y vídeos muy cañeros Desde el primer momento te grabamos vídeos y echamos fotos que puedas llevarte como recuerdo. Con una GoPro.

Ecopicnic final

Cuando acabemos, cervecita y productos de proximidad para recuperar energías… Con el subidón de haber superado el reto.

As you can see, this experience has everything you could ask for: a pleasant circular route, dream-like views, stories, aromatic plants, diving in a virgin cove and a great snack before we go home.

Don’t miss any details: here’s what you’ll get! 

Here's what you can expect on the hiking trek around Maro Cerro Gordo + snorkeling

We will pick you up in Nerja, at the meeting point, which we will tell you about once you make the reservation. Once there, we’ll head together in our vehicle to the starting point of our adventure, in the Cliffs of Maro and Cerro Gordo Natural Park.

From there we begin our adventure of non-stop entertainment. We will stop often because the views are amazing. The combination of Mediterranean forest with steep cliffs, as well as defensive watchtowers of Arab origin offer a fascinating history that the guide will describe in a dynamic and entertaining way. 

And the road itself… man, what a road! We’ll stop to take pictures, smell aromatic plants, enjoy the landscape with its beautiful contrasts between forest, sea and cliffs and enjoy, plain and simple, the feeling of freedom.

Finally, the route ends in a natural cove whose access is unknown to almost everyone. We’ll spend half an hour there, enough for you to sunbathe, swim, dive (if conditions allow it) … and eat, because we also make a picnic with fresh locally sourced snacks.

At the end, we will hike back to the van, and from there we will return to the initial meeting point, unless you want to be dropped off at a local fish market to buy the best fresh seafood available in the area.

Later that day (or the following day at the latest) we will send you a link with all the photos and videos we have taken during the experience, which there will be plenty of. You’ve been warned.

This is what previous adventurers say about the experience

Very small groups, a dynamically guided hiking route that has it all and some snorkeling in a secret virgin cove at the end. Can you ask for more? We don’t think so, and these folks agree:

What we need from you for this snorkeling hiking trail

It's rather easy, but still necessary. Read carefully:

You have to be minimally fit

because although the experience is low-medium difficulty, you should be able to move with some agility.

You should bring sports shoes, swimsuit, towel

sunscreen, headgear and anything else you think you might need in the cove.

If you rather bring your own food and drinks for the final ecopicnic

no problem.

If you also rather bring your own snorkeling gear, no problem.

However, we normally provide it for you.

You should arrive at the meeting point in Nerja at the indicated time

(in the summer, at 16:30h; rest of the year, in the morning, at 08:30h).

Below are some additional details also included in the experience, but they weren't exciting enough to list above

Environmental permit from the Junta de Andalucía

You need a special permit to enter this area of the Natural Park. Not just anyone can enter. Well, we do have it 😉

Civil liability and accident insurance

You have to have it, by law; not that we doubt your skill in descending rivers. Well, we also include it.

Who is behind all this?

Nature guides who like to create global awareness

Frequently Asked Questions (yes, there are some)

Sports shoes, backpack, swimsuit, towel, sun hat, sunscreen and only if you want to (because it is included), food and drink for the ecopicnic. We especially recommend you the drink, because we will give you a half liter bottle that is also made of plastic. In short: if you can bring your own drink, all the better (and if it’s in a sustainable container, that would be peeeeerfect). 

We’ll lend it to you, but if you prefer to bring your own, that’s fine with us.

No, you do it on your own, but the guide will tell you where to see more fish and corals.

If you go in your own car, there’s no reason why you couldn’t.

Nope: you will have to arrive at the meeting point in Nerja in the morning and leave from there at the end of the activity. In order to go from the meeting point to the Natural Park and back we do it in our van (although you can follow us with your car so you can stay in the cove at the end). We do offer, however, transportation from Málaga, but only upon request and at an additional cost. 

The bus company ALSA has daily tickets with multiple schedules from both cities to the bus station of Nerja (and vice versa).

We will only snorkel if the weather allows it.

We only organize this experience upon request. In the warm months (May to November) the schedule is Monday and Wednesday at 16:30h. The rest of the year, upon request and at 08:30h in the morning. 

Yes, 10 people more or less. We like to create a group feeling and get to know our adventurers, and that is impossible when there’s too many people. There is also the option to make the experience completely private; you just have to ask us.

If you let us know at least 5 days in advance, yes: the full amount. And in case it is due to a medical reason, if you give us proof of cancellation, we will refund the money even if you don’t let us know 5 days in advance.

Of course. We will make you a voucher with it, so you can surprise whoever you want.

Come on, all that’s left is to say yes: do you feel like going on a jaw-dropping hiking route, with a great ending in a secret cove on the Andalusian coast?
