So we got on the "train" and had to stop many times. Eventually, they made us get off the train and left us at a stop somewhere. They said that they wouldn't take us the end even though we paid. We hopped on a "train...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.
