From Mogán, the GC-200 winds off to the northwest, travelling 26km through some spectacularly craggy mountains to Aldea de San Nicolás, though the final approach is sadly blighted by the surrounding sea of plastic greenhouses. Stop for a glass of fresh papaya juice at Las Cañadas, around 8km from Mogán on your left-hand side. This is an agreeably quirky restaurant and bar with stunning views plus the added appeal of turtles, a chameleon and a small museum with old agricultural equipment, radios and the like. You can also buy local honey and the largest avocados you have ever seen (when in season).
The winding road continues through Los Azulejos, a colourful rock formation created by different-coloured minerals of brilliant greens, yellows and ochres. To avoid a head-on collision, take your photos from the signposted Fuente de los Azulejos Mirador lookout, where you'll find a fabulous juice stand.
