- IMPORTANT: DUE TO TEMPORARY REPAIR WORKS, ENTRANCE AND EXIT TO THE CAMINITO ARE FROM THE SOUTH EXIT. (No shuttle bus is used so far from the meeting point and the trek returns by the same path, making a total of 6 km walk, but not passing through the north canyon.) The north entrance is expected to open again at the end of January. The meeting point is, as usual, at Hotel La Garganta but the shuttle bus will not be used. However, the most spectacular scenery of the Caminito is still seen during the trek as you pass through the Canal Tunnel and the hanging walkway in both directions.
