Camino real is a great hike from Barichara to Guane, 5.1 miles, mostly down, clean, safe, well marked. About half an hour before the end there is a house where cold drinks are sold, just when you most need them! Views from the valley are...More

This quiet path leaves Barichara from the Mirador street, slightly below Santa Barbara, West of the village. Although it may be slippery by rainy weather, the path is paved and rather smooth, going mainly downhill with only two short uphill sections. It is an easy...More

This is a great hike! It takes several hours and meanders on a well-marked trail past farms and through the mountains, ending at the town of Guane. The town itself is worth a visit. Wear good hiking or walking shoes, bring water and a hat...More

5km mostly downhill hike to Guane. Bring good shoes since the beginning might be slippery and make sure do not step between the rocks paving the trail.

The walk is great and quite easy. Leave early before the sun get at her highest point, cause it can get hot around Barichara. Food in the town down is not that great (inexpensive though) so maybe pack yourself a sandwich.

I recommend you to do a more interesting trail, passing by 6 small towns: Cabrera, Barichara, Guane, Villa Nueva, Jordán y Los Santos. It's a beautiful trekking that you can make in 3 to 4 days. You don't need to reserve any place, nor pay...More

Hey Erika. Well, for starters, there is no "downtown" in Barichara. It is a charming little village. You can walk from one end to the other in about 10 minutes. Therefore, the head of the Camino Real trail should be no more... More
