How long is the El Questro Gorge Walk?

The El Questro Gorge Walk is 7.2 km long. Although more challenging, this is a fun walk through the narrow gorge with steep rock walls. It takes hikers anywhere between 3 to 5 hours to complete. For those wanting to avoid boulder climbing, there is the option to return after reaching the halfway pool. If you have the time and the upper body strength, it's definitely worth continuing all the way to the El Questro Waterfall and plunge pool.
