Rio Chillar, a hidden gem

After spending the whole summer in Spain I'm now ready 
to do some blogging again, I think. 
Always love to come back to Spain. You may think it could be boring to always stay at the same place, see the same people, eat at the same restaurants and visit the same beach........ and honestly it sometimes is!
But it is also very exiting to read books about this lovely country and then plan excursions. I simply love the mountains behind the Costa and each year we visit a new place. And this year we ended up in the river!

The route cuts through the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama Natural Park, offering plenty of shade, crystal clear river pools and guarantees a brilliant day out for the whole family. The walk starts easy and will sometimes be a bit of challenge, but most people will handle it. Most important is good shoes (beach shoes with rubber sole is not good enough, I tried!) , sunscreen, water and a snack.
Be aware: In summer it could be busy especially in weekends when locals find their way, and when there has been rainfall in the mountains.
There is no better way to cool off on a hot summer's day.
