There are many ways to have an enjoyable stay in Tolox. On this page you’ll find different forms of Tolox entertainment. Some of them are carried out indoors, others on the exotic narrow streets of the village, and still others are performed in the surrounding environs.
If you’re looking for some outdoor adventure, then you can go hiking, canyoning, mountain biking, horseback riding, burro riding, or (if you’re not faint-hearted) 4x4 riding. The slopes of the Sierra de las Nieves, Cañon de Jorox, or the Rio Grande are among the most frequented sites for this sort of activities. Some hotels, like Cerro de Hijar, can easily organize an excursion for you.
If you prefer to spend your vacation on a more laid-back mode, you may sign up for a brief Spanish class or a short Flamenco dance course. Most of these last for 5 days, so if you don’t plan to stay long, then you might as well try out other activities like touring the archaeological monuments and museums around town.
Some of these monuments and museums include the Murallas del Castillo, El Museo de Artes Populares, Ermita de San Roque, Plaza Alta, and the Ermita de la Virgen de las Nieves. Even a walk down the narrow streets of Tolox can be almost equally enjoyable.
If you come over at the right time, there are various cultural activities you can either watch or take part in. There are annual festivals and fairs held in different months. Among them are the Carnaveles, Ruta a Caballo Sierra de las Nieves, Semana Santa, Romeria de la Virgen de las Nieves, Corpus Cristi, Semana Cultural, Festival Folclorcio Nacional Villa de Tolox, Feria del Carmen, Fiestas y coheta de San Roque, and the Dia de las Mozas.
The town has some well-maintained sports facilities, including the Municipal Pool, Jose Mesa Soccer Court, Sports Centre and the Municipal Gymnasium. That means, you can either watch the locals play or you can play with them. You might also want to check out the Maquinas Deportivas, which were installed for the general public, along the road to the Ermita de San Roque.
