All reviews the bus nice walk every hour san gil nice morning wear good walking shoes downhill hike bring water great hike small town an ice cream follow the path beautiful scenery the main square leave early return trip both ways
Make sure to start early in the morning rather than being hit by the heat and don’t forget a hat and water. Even if you will have two spots on the way where you can buy juices and water. I’d recommend to start from Barichara...More
It was an exhilarating walk for a 65 year old with a bad knee. I hired a local guide to accompany me. Carlos proved to be well acquainted with the area and a solid shoulder to lean on on the steepest downhills.
I was rewarded...More
A truly beautiful walk between Barichara and Guane; it took me about 2 hours at a good pace, stopping to take photos because the view is just spectacular. I would avoid going in the heat of the day as this made it a bit harder...More
This is a beautiful walk. Wear hiking boots or trainers. It's not difficult at all but there are rocks which you can slip on. Most of it is downhill or straight. A very small part up hill. It is easy. Not always clearly sign posted...More
Nice quite walk with nice views. Not too much to do in Guane except visiting the museum and the view from the “mirador”. The walk is not easy due to the rocks the path is made of. Make sure to have walking boots!
Colombia keeps on blowing my mind due to the spectacular scenery that you meet almost anywhere you go in the country. As we set out on the Barichara to Guani walk we were first informed that the walk would take us 30 minutes. We arrived...More
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

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 that a few minutes walk from wherever you are. If you are not staying in Barichara and are getting the bus to town, it is about 5 blocks to the northwest of the bus stop. We walked the trail and got the bus back to the square in Barichara. It takes approximately 90-120 minutes to walk downhill to Guane. Some great views with local birds and goats. Once in Guane, buy your bus tickets back to Barichara at the bus terminal at the far corner of the town square.

We (my husband and me) did the walk through Camino Real twice the day after day. Actually Camino Real isn't crowded indeed but you can meet some hikers during your trip. There are both couple nad solo hikers (especially women). Each time we were walking Camino Real we feel very safe and comfortable. Camino Real (in direction to Guane ) is easy, well signed way going down. Getting to Guane from Barichara took us about 1,5 hour with really many stops to admire landscape, birds, nature. The whole way is incredible peaceful and picturesque and we loved it so much to do it again the next day :) Or if you have any threats of walking alone you can always ask about some company at your hotel/hostel.
All the best
