Chilling at the Chillar

Posted by Katie Margaret Hall on 15 October 2016

The adventure begins with not being able to find the entrance. It's one of those "in the know" scenarios, as it's not signpsoted where to park or access the main entrance to the Rio Chillar hike. It's less than ten minutes from the coastal town of Nerja.

I've stayed at Bambu before but this is my first time as a solo traveller. I knew it would be the perfect spot to flex my solo travelling muscles though, as the warm welcome from the hosts (despite getting lost on the drive by around 30 minutes) and other guests immediately put me at ease.
