The Caminito del Rey was built in 1905 to allow workers to access the hydroelectric power plants at Chorro Falls and Gaitanejo Falls and became famous for its stunning views and sheer drops. It fell into disrepair and was closed in the 1980s, though that didn’t stop adventure seekers from trying to walk it, with several deaths ensuring. The path was restored and reopened in 2015, and visitors can either hike it alone or with a guide, taking about 4 to 5 hours in total. Visitor numbers are limited to 100 per half-hour timeslot, to avoid overcrowding, and tickets sell out up to a month in advance, so book online to avoid disappointment!
