It was a challenge to get there...taxi drivers didn't know where it was? Besides that, this was fun. You just have to experience it, go. It's about $10 or so. Let go of the wish that the garbage was not there and walk all the...More

We started by Las Flores, and took the makeshift trolley. It was a long and bumpy ride. It took us as far it goes along the rocks. We had to climb up and over. But in the end, the view is great.
