  • 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.
  • $2 entry. Amazing 360 views. 100% worth it. Decent hike, or just go on the moto
  • Great view of SJdS Bay and surrounding areas. There's a small fee to pay at the entrance, but for the views of the whole area it's worth it. There are restrooms, although I didn't used it.
  • Excellent view and nice short hike to the top. Recommended!
  • This is amazing place , one the best in Nicaragua or even central América
