  • Hire a guide responsible for climbing. When I went up, began to blow so much that it felt like I was going to drop her off. The view is beautiful to see the immensity of the Caribbean Sea < 3

  • Special ascent of about three hours, slowly, through the dry forest to reach the highest peak of Providence, from where you can see both sides of the island. The combination between forest very well protected and the sea of colors is special, take the time to contemplate. Although you could climb without a guide, we prefer to hire one local who was one of the settlers begins where the road. Off we went to the beach manzanillo to finish with a good fish.

  • Worth the walk which isn't difficult at all, except much dirty shoes, since you see that there are days when there is a lot mud and puddles of water that is required to pass. Bring water, sunscreen and good shoes, the view from the top is amazing, the wind helps to compensate for the heat. You can see the entire island surrounded by the sea and the different colors, contrasting with so much green. Don't forget to do it!
