Sendero Rio de la Miel

Reviewed By elkebaby - Gibraltar, null

You’d think from the picture that this place is hard to get to but it isn’t whatsoever. From parking car to reaching destination is an easy 20-30 minute walk along the countryside. There are 3 natural pools, the second is the most beautiful in my opinion which is the one in picture. There is a natural well where you can fill up water bottles and comfortable shoes are recommended, especially if you want to go to the third pool which requires a bit of climbing on rocks (not difficult). This tends to get packed on sunny days and on weekends even more so! Recommendation would be to go around 5pm when the sun is dying down (my favourite time to go) or early in the morning.

When booking train tickets in Spain on the internet, NEVER EVER USE RAIL NINJA AND/OR RUSSIAN TRAINS. THIS IS A SCAM. When you book through Rail Ninja, they divert you to Russian Trains. Russian Trains then tried to sell me tickets at inflated prices and tried the good old "bait and switch" trick where they sold Premium tickets on special, took my money and then emailed me a few days later saying that only Economy tickets were available at the same price or else I have to pay an extra 105 EUROs to upgrade to the Premium tickets that I had already paid for! Russian Trains are SCAMMERS. When I went direct to Renfe (the Spanish national rail company) I got the tickets I wanted with no problems. The trick here is the Rail Ninja web site is actually much easier to use and looks much better than the RENFE site but don't let appearances fool you! Book directly with the rail company and not re-sellers.
