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.

My advise, get sunblock, a hat, sunglasses, camera, something to drink and around 30000-50000 pesos, depending if you wanna eat or buy fruits on the way. I payed 15000 for the train and 2*10000 for the taxi to and from my hotel. Bought some water...More
