Caught the circular route bus from near our hotel at Rubicon Marina. Bus also stops in Playa Blanca near harbour. Route to top not too steep but fantastic views (see photos). Several paths back down again not too difficult & able to access bus back.

Although quite a steep climb, at the top we had fantastic 360 degree views. Definitely worth getting up early to see the sunrise over Playa Blanca.

This mountain extinct volcanoe looks stunning from below, but even better from the top. My daughter and I made the climb which took around 25 minutes but it was well worth it. You can walk through the centre of the crater and from the top...More

I jogged from our villa in Calle Irlanda to the roundabout at the end of Calle Rusia (suggested starting point of Dave in another review). From there it’s a fairly gentle incline around the back of the mountain on a narrow but well defined path....More
