At the moment, visits are on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 to 15 and only a maximum of 200 people (100 from 9 to 12 and another 100 from 12 to 15) per day can enter. Each person has the possibility to walk on the trails enabled, but must respect the protocol of using a chinstrap and not picnicking or drinking mate.
