  • Beautiful views, reach is tiring, uphill. Since the end of the beach, after a few buildings there is a door, and from there the road is only rise up to Christ. When you arrive you charge to enter, $3 per person or cordoba in equivalence.

  • Amazing panoramic views of the San Juan del Sur Bay and surrounding areas. We took a taxi to the top of the mountain and walked all the way down to the beach. Best to go about an hour before sunset. T...  more »
  • It's a nice little hike to get to the top but you'll be rewarded with stunning views of the town and ocean. Be sure to go up at sunset.  more »

  • Great sunset view of Pacific Ocean and San Juan del Sur harbor! A very steep hike that you need good physical fit to climb that 50 degree uphill. Drive a car up is easier. 100 Cordoba for entrance.
  • A short hike up a steep paved hill. 2 dollar entry fee for foreign tourists. Great view of the bay and sjds. Be sure to bring some water with you.
  • Incredible view from the top. They have a mini church underneath the statute with history of all other statues around the world. You can walk, drive or even ATV up to the top. I recommend atv. They say it's $1 to get in as a local or $2 as a foreign, but just grab a local and say they are your guide to get in for free
  • $2 entrance fee for an awesome view of all San Juan and nearby beaches. You can drive to a very close parking and walk up. Below the statue there is a mini-chapel. Totally worth seeing.
  • If your in san juan you cant miss this. The cost is 2 dollars or 60 cords for tourists and less for locals. The view is beautiful the walk up can be steep so granny might need a hand but there is stares and it is doable for most people. Definetly check it out!
