DescriptionRio Verde is just beautiful! Crystal clear green/blue water with lots of small waterfalls.
Rio Verde is a river in the province of Granada. It is born in the eastern part of the Natural Park of the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama, in the municipality of Otívar, as the confluence of several streams between the ravine of Mina Rica and the ravine of Chorreras. On its route, of about 20 km, it crosses the border between Otívar and Lentegí, and crosses Jete and Almuñecar until it empties into the Mediterranean Sea. Río Verde, owes its name to the color of its waters, and is characterized by its fertile fertile plain, with subtropical crops and fruit trees, which contrast with the pine forests and herbaceous plants typical of the flora of this mountain range. In its route you can see an endemism of Iberian fauna such as the mountain goat and predatory species such as the golden eagle or the Bonelli’s eagle, among others.
Almuñécar is a town on Spain’s south coast. It’s known for beaches like Velilla, San Cristobal and Del Mar. By the coast, San Miguel Castle is a centuries-old Arab fort. The Rocks of San Cristobal extend offshore. Subtropical plants fill El Majuelo Botanical Park, by the remains of a Roman fish-salting factory. In the vaults of an old Roman palace, the Archaeological Museum has Roman pottery and Egyptian artifacts.
