IF you are one of the hundreds who have been left disappointed that the Caminito del Rey has already sold out until January, then fear not.
While the official website has indeed sold out is allocation for 2015, more than half of the entry tickets are managed by the municipalities of Alora and Ardales instead.
This means that local restaurants and hotels can provide entry tickets as part of a package, with the common meal deal costing between €16 and €25.
Since October began, each of the municipalities has 250 daily entries, reducing the share of the official Caminito website to 400 daily, as there is a daily limit of 900.
They previously had just 100 each, with 700 per day allocated through the website.
Jose Sanchez, mayor of Alora, said that making tickets available to hotels and restaurants is a way to ‘empower local businesses’.
Tickets can also be booked directly through the two towns’ tourist offices, via email or phone.
