La Cumbrecita

Immigrants from Switzerland and Austria built this village in the 1930s, and its wooden chalets wouldn't look out of place in the Alps. La Cumbrecita is surrounded by tree-filled slopes, and well-marked trails lace the area. The peace extends right into La Cumbrecita, which is a car-free zone in the daytime (many residents use golf carts to get around). Two clean rivers, the Almbach and the Río del Medio, run close to the village; both have small cascades and balnearios (bathing spots). The village has a mild microclimate, with warm but not roasting summers; snow is a frequent sight in winter, which puts the finishing touches to La Cumbrecita's alpine look. The village has no main square and isn't laid out on a grid. Instead, two roads run through it, neither with street numbers; the lower Paseo Bajo has several restaurants and hotels along it.
