  • So I read all the reviews on here saying that it’s super steep, that there are 100 stairs and even one that described a ‘river like pool of water’ they had to wade through. I am overweight and out of ...  more »
  • Right before I left I wanted to hike the hill and visit the platform. Unfortunately it was closed and therefore I could not reach the top. I was pretty disappointed since that was my last chance to ha...  more »
  • My spouse and I visited on the honeymoon and we arrive at our own car, so the foods up was not difficult. Once reaching the top, must pay $2 to enter, price I consider overrated taking into account the conditions of the place, podriam improve the conditions or lower the price, plus there is also $1 tip to the guard of the private residence for to watch the cars. Once at the top, there is a spectacular view of the Bay and the mountains, so I highly recommend visiting.

  • Wonderful Experience ! The view from here is amazing ! Totally worth it. The entrance is not expensive at all, just be sure to bring water if you are walking since its a very steep climb. Cars can get here as well, which makes it much faster to arrive.
  • Super nice view over the beach and San Juan. Entrance fee is only two dollars. Definitely worth it!
  • Great view of San Juan del Sur. Cant wait to go back.
  • The view at the top is worth the trip up.
  • The views from Christ of the Mercy are absolutely spectacular. It is a long and hot walk up to the statue from San Juan del Sur but well worth it. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes and bring plenty of water. If you don’t feel like walking it you can always take a taxi to the top. The cost for the mirador is $2 per adult and $1 per child.
