A visit to the Caminito del Rey on Saturday the 15th of May 2021 was a bit dismal to be honest and today I note that on the official website the “Caminito del Rey is closed until further notice”
I can’t get anyone to answer the phone and they aren’t responding to messages on their social networks.
The lamentable state of the “Interpretation centre” that has never been opened also drew my negative attention. Such a shame. The enormous car park goes unused whilst many people are forced to park illegally along the side of the road close the the kiosko bar making the road dangerous to all.
Of course I would recommend the Caminito del Rey but the organisation of this site has been terrible of late. Surely they must have some idea as to when tickets will be available again and could very easily publish this across the social networks and website.…
Oh! and to top it all I was informed by the hotel Posada del Conde that their bar and restaurant was closed untill further notice or at least until September!
Remember that most of the hotels in the area of the Caminito del Rey can help you with the entry permits for the Caminito del Rey.
With the restricted access (half normal capacity) and the difficulty in getting a permit on the online reservation system why not stay in a local hotel, help the local economy and take the hassle out of getting a ticket.

In a statement, the company recalls that autumn is “an ideal time” to enjoy the almost three kilometers of hanging walkways attached to the rocks of the gorge, due to the gentle drop in temperature.
October also brings a change in the opening hours of the Caminito del Rey, which will open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., from Tuesday to Sunday.
