There are lots of activities in the Mijas area and there are always new and exciting options popping up. Here are a few of the less obvious ways to have fun in the area. Why not give them a try while you are staying in one of our Mijas villas or apartments.
Tuk Tuk Spain
If you have ever travelled to India or South East Asia you will be familiar with the crazy vehicle that is a ‘Tuk Tuk’ or an auto rickshaw. These 3 wheel, noisy little mopeds can whizz around tight corners and weave in and out of traffic giving you a thrilling, and sometimes terrifying ride!
The Tuk Tuks in Mijas are of European standard and they offer a more comfortable and less terrifying tour of the village and its wonderful surroundings. These vehicles allow you to go off the usual tourist trail and discover hidden gems. They are also a great option for those with limited mobility as you can just sit back and take in the views without having to walk around the narrow, sometimes steep streets.
The tour guides that work for Tuk Tuk Spain have fantastic local knowledge and they are also happy to help recommend places to eat, drink or visit in the area.
The company are based in Mijas Pueblo and you can make reservation online on their website www.tuktukspain.es.
There are lots of companies offering jeep safaris on the Costa del Sol and these are without a doubt great fun. However, for those who like to get more involved with the action a buggy safari may be more up your street.
Rangers Safari Tours offer buggy safaris in vehicles that seat two people for €140 for 3 hours, or €275 for 6 hours. They will take you on mountain trails, through riverbeds, and through green woodlands. You can stop to take pictures of the beautiful scenery and even stop off at a traditional Spanish Venta for a cold drink.

Canyoning sounds like a pretty terrifying activity, reserved for adrenalin junkies. However, canyoning in the mountains between Mijas and Marbella is a far more relaxing and enjoyable experience than you would expect.
Adventure Spain offer canyon tours for up to eight people. As long as you are able to swim and you are fit enough to walk and climb up moderately steep hills, you will be fine. They can take family groups, stag and hen parties, or corporate groups.
Canyoning is a fantastic way to see parts of the countryside on Mijas Costa that most will not experience. You also get to cool off in the water and get your thrills by leaping into the canyons. This really is a unique experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.
