Driving by car from Málaga.
There are two routes from Málaga. The route recommended by Google Maps (see below) is to drive down the coast on the motorway (N-340) to Marbella, though two options exist, the free Autovia (A-7) or the toll Autopista (AP-7). A few kilometres past Marbella take the San Pedro de Alcantara exit, at which point you follow the signs for Ronda (A-376).
This route is very scenic, but the stretch from San Pedro has been described as one of the more challenging roads in Southern Spain. Generally the road seems safe, and driving at the recommended speed limit whilst slowing for the tight corners will see you arrive safely. The entire trip from Málaga should take around 1.5 hours if traffic isn’t congested.
The other approach is to head inland from Málaga instead of taking the coast road. This particular route has recently been upgraded in places and sometimes takes just over an hour.
From Malaga follow the signs for the N-340 but take the A-7 until you see signs for the A-357 Guadalhorce /Churriana. Keep on the A-357 until you reach Cartama, then follow the signs for the A-367 towards Campillos.
