What people are saying about Province of Málaga

The experience at El Caminito del Rey was very transgressive for me to sign up for. Still, I'm so glad I did it because YOU MADE IT even though my left lower leg broke in 3 places almost 2 years ago. I was afraid it wouldn't make it but YEEES....my leg also handled the rigors with glamour. I would have regretted not participating because the experience was absolutely amazing.

Been planning to do it for years and now I've walked it. Very doable and safe. The suspension bridge was a bit scary but that will be because I have some fear of heights. Would recommend to anyone!

Great day out. Good value and best route from Torre del Mar.

It is worth doing this activity, nature to the fullest.

If you have an unforgettable day, I had a great time
