Junta de los Rios is a place of outstanding natural beauty with wonderful river pools and spectacular views.
Junta de los Rios translates as “the joining of the rivers”. It’s the ideal name as the Rio Verde and Rio Negro rivers meet to form waterfalls and clear pools that are ideal for a bathe.
Until recently, the river was relatively unexplored and was used only for people practising adrenaline sports, mainly climbing and barranquismo (canyoning), with specialist groups taking people on guided tours.Although still not on the regular tourist route, over the past few years the area has opened up and become more popular.
The blog post below was originally written for Spain Holiday a few years ago. Since then, the river has become a lot more accessible and popular.
