    What a beautiful place and the views of town were beautiful. We really enjoyed our time there. Sunset was beautiful and looking out into the ocean was very nice.  more »

    Access is street of ballast in a part, paving stone on another, 96 steps to reach the Christ, a beautiful view, is worth $1 entry.

    The Christ is spectacular, but I recognize that access should be in pretty good shape, if not, you do not get. The last section may have more than 45% of inclination, and not accessible by car. It is worth climbing that Yes, the views are magnificent, and the Christ impresses.

    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!

    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.
