Peak Season vs Low Season

Peak Season: April to October.
Low Season: November to March.

  • Spring (March-May) and autumn (September-early November) are the sweet spots. The weather is pleasantly mild during these shoulder seasons, avoiding the scorching summer heat and the cooler winter temperatures. This also means there's a good balance between manageable crowds and comfortable weather. If lower prices and even fewer crowds are a priority, consider the low season. However, be aware that some facilities might have reduced hours or be closed altogether, and the opening hours are shorter (10am to 2:50pm) compared to peak season (10am to 5:20pm). Just remember that the Caminito del Rey is completely closed on Mondays and some holidays, so plan accordingly!

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Aim for a weekday visit if you can. The Caminito del Rey is a popular spot, and weekends, especially during peak season, can get crowded. With more people on the narrow walkways, you might have to wait and navigate around others, slowing down your exploration. Weekdays offer a smoother experience, allowing you to enjoy the scenic views at your own pace.
  • Weekends provide a livelier atmosphere in the town of El Chorro, offering more open restaurants and shops. For families visiting with children, weekends offer access to a playground and additional town activities.
