Presa del Llano (This is the starting point to El Peñon de la Bufa )

On this occasion we'll visit Presa del LLano to enjoy the lake, which is the eco tourist park's main attraction. We'll hike around the lake and across the bridge to its island, and go into the woods that surround it. It'll be a 3 to 4 hour activity with not much elevation gain.

We'll stop for breakfast at "Barbacoa Don Chava" on our way to Villa del Carbón, the place specializes in Barbacoa (Mexican lamb stew) and they also serve regular Mexican antojitos, quesadillas, etc.

At the end of the hike, we can enjoy a boat ride in the lake

Adequate footwear - Hiking boots or shoes or at least sneakers.
Please bring with you:
• 1 Lt water
• Sunblock
• Waterproof jacket and trousers in case it rains.
• Recommended light fabric shirts
• Hat & sunglasses
• Trekking poles (recommended)

Arturo, our guide, knows the path well and will lead the way since trails in Mexico are not always marked. Any questions please post below!

IMPORTANT: We are carpooling! If you can bring your own car, please post this in the activity wall and indicate how many people you could take with you. If you need a ride please post a message too so that others can offer a lift. If you are getting a ride, please collaborate with gas, tolls and car-wash.
