Cerro Uchumachi Walk
Cerro Uchumachi Walk information
For pretty views head uphill toward Hotel Esmeralda and on up to El Calvario , an easy 20-minute hike. At El Calvario the Stations of the Cross lead to a grassy knoll and chapel. There are two good trailheads from El Calvario. The one to the left leads to the cascadas , a trio of waterfalls 5km (or two hours walk) beyond the chapel.
The trail to the right leads to Cerro Uchumachi , which affords terrific valley views. Bring a guide or travel in a group – no incidents have occurred in recent years, but play it safe.
