Natasha guided us to this incredible place. She is a very pleasant lady and is extremely knowledgeable about El Torcal. We were not prepared for the weather (even though she told us the day before to bring warm clothing) thinking that since it was hot in Malaga how cold could it be 1 hour away. When we got there temperatures were in the 40's and very windy which makes it colder. She patiently waited for the store to open so we could buy sweaters and gloves. During the tour she explained every detail of the Torcal, how it was formed, the types of plants that grow there, the different animals that live there etc.. Natasha was very careful on taking on thru safe trails. This is an experience you cannot miss if you are a nature lover and appreciate the evolution of earth.
