Cruz de los Misioneros

On the day that we made our second failed attempt of hiking the Barranco del Infierno, we had to quickly come up with a different hike.  We didn’t want something too strenuous, as we had a long hike the day before.  We decided to drive to Tamaimo, which is also in the south west of Tenerife.  We hiked to the Cruz de los Misioneros.  It was a short but steep hike.

After we made it up to the cross, there was a trail going up to the neighboring peak.  We climbed up there and had views of the town of Tamaimo and the mountains on one side & views of the ocean on the other.

Behind my head is the Teide.

We climbed back down & we had enough time in the afternoon for a swim (my only time in the ocean).
