What to Bring
food and snacks
hiking shoes/ shoes that have grip- I used my spikeless golf shoes
camera and drone if you have one
Most importantly: Friends to enjoy the experience!
The first part of the trail has a marked path that is pretty narrow and muddy. You’ll start slowly going up, you know you’re heading the right direction when you see the rope tied to the trees. Use it to go up to the first flat area where the cross is located. Photo Below:
The second part is a bit trickier because you’ll have to go through a trail surrounded by rocks. Be careful because there many dead ends leading to the cliff. The only part where I was a total damsel in distress was when we had to jump from one rock to another because it was more efficient than going down to the space between them.

Use same trail to go down. Be careful because if its muddy. If you feel like you’re slipping constantly, sit down in the ground and go down like that. That’s what I did. I might be scared of heights but that doesn’t stop me.
Where to Eat
We went to Hacienda Maribó in Adjuntas. The restaurant specializes in Argentinian Food. The place has indoor and outdoor seating with views of the mountains. I recommend that you make reservations.
Main dish: I recommend the Parrillada, there is a half and a double but the half is plenty for two people. All the meat is perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Sides: try the mofongo and tostones.
Starters, the arancini and chorizos. Ask for the guava sauce.
Drink try the mojito.
