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).
