Geocaching in Serranía de Ronda
Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which participants use puzzle-solving clues or GPS coordinates to hunt caches hidden in unexpected places.
You will need to create an account, where username, password and email address are required, on this webpage www.geocaching.com to experience the exciting treasure hunting adventure. Once you have joined in, you can browse all the cache listings with the localization and difficulty level.
Caches are containers, with different shapes and sizes, where you can find a paper and a pencil to enter your username and, generally, they contain small trinkets for trading.
When you return the cache to the same coordinates, you need to record your fi nd online. Finally, it is the time to look for a new cache with the help of the world geocache map available on the website.
As it is a unique adventure, it is an ideal activity for families and it is also a new way of discovering places.
