  • 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.
  • 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.
  • $2 entry. Amazing 360 views. 100% worth it. Decent hike, or just go on the moto
  • Wonderful view of the bay and city.
