Rock climbing in Peñón de Ifach, Spain

We were rained out, so I can't honestly review my experience with Penon de Ifach. It will have to wait until another time. However, weather is beyond Jorge's control and he went out of his way to make sure I was informed the entire time on the possibility of needing to cancel well before my trip. In addition, he handled all previous logistics excellently and provided that nature did not intervene I have no doubt this would have been a phenomenal experience. Jorge also made sure that my deposit was refunded with expediency shortly after cancellation. I would recommend using this service to seek adventure in the beauty of Spain, as they clearly use highly trained and professional individuals to make sure that your safety is of main priority.

Rock climbing in Peñón de Ifach, Spain

I just spent 4 days climbing in Costa Blanca with My guide, Ruben Sanchez.  I have been climbing for 25+years, and have worked with a lot of guides around the world.  Climbing with Ruben was truly one of the best guided experiences I have ever had. He has a  rare combination of easy going, encouraging personality mixed with very safe and competent climbing/guiding skills. I told him what I wanted to accomplish during our time together, and he more than met my expectations.  I was challenged,  but always felt safe, and I had a great time.  The bonus was working on my Spanish for 4 days (he was incredibly patient with me!). I would HIGHLY recommend Ruben as a guide to anyone looking to climb in Spain.  Thank you so much for making the connection for me!
