  • You can see across the Bay from this place, you can breathe fresh air and feels the breeze of the sea from there up, you can't go to San Juan South without visiting the Cristo de la Misericordia

  • 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.
