  • This viewpoint is simply unmissable. The panoramic view from the Cristo de la Misericordia is stunning on San Juan del Sur and its surroundings. All beautiful, easy to get to location, but not as easy to access as it is done by a ramp with a reasonable degree of inclination. This is the only drawback, since your access may be the inhibitor people of reduced mobility, which is a shame and regrettable, because no one should be deprived of visit and enjoy these splendid views. Not shocking that pay, if only symbolically, to enter the premises where the Christ on top of a small chapel, but that this money was used in the restoration and conservation of the enclosure and to building a ramp for persons with disabilities. All the way until you reach the top is accompanied by magnificent views of the Bay and mountains of San Juan, being the "climax" of course the viewpoint, from where one can enjoy the whole town, the magnificent beach of yellow sand to the top of the green mountains and their villages, the vast ocean and the coy and captives of beaches around the city. Who view this viewpoint will never forget the panorama.
