We did the amigos trail as well. I believe it shows in my recording. Personally go to the clouded forest it’s nicer and not as creepy. Hahaha yes this is a free hike!! But it’s not well maintained and I was a little freaked out about insects! Only due to it being a little wet and we had a scorpion and a snake in our rooms the night following lol.

Nothing special: a wide yet steep forest track. It starts from the Belmar hotel. You can not miss it nor get lost. The view must be good from the top but in August, I got only clouds and rain. It’s a good workout for trail running though : quite steep but you can run all the way, and you can go on your own without worrying about anything else but the odd dog. Beware of slippery mud in the way down.
