A short drive from Guaro, into the Sierra de las Nieves, takes you to Tolox. Looking down on the village is the Hotel Cerro de Hijar, run by three Spaniards. Good, fresh, quite sophisticated food served in a simple, relaxed restaurant. Tel.+34 952 11 21 11
I haven’t stayed there for a few years, but it’s a favourite place to go hiking and then stop off for a coffee, or cold beer or something to eat.
You can buy maps of the Natural park here too.
