Wonderful views of the city and surroundings from here. Gets busier at sunset but not overcrowded. There’s the option to get a tuktuk or car to the top but you can equally walk through a nice park up the stairs to get there instead.

Hiked to the top this wk. Well maintained walk way to the top. Not a “forest trail” with natural terrain. Can also hire a tuk tuk to go to the top. Their standard rate is Q10 each way. That’s total and not per person. Various...More

Until 5 p.m. it is safe to go to the cross. There are a couple of security guards, because of incidents in the past. Beautiful view. If you want you can go by car, but it is not a very difficult walk. There are some...More

For such a short walk it is great to have a fantastic view of the city. We walked up in the morning and never once felt threatened. It is an easy stone path to follow and there were people running and walking up and down...More

This is a nice, easy hike over the city. You do need to be ready for some steeper steps to hike up/down to/from the viewpoint, unless you drive up as an alternative. Nice photo opportunity!

A bit of a climb (you can take taxi also) for a nice view over the city of Antigua. On a clear weather you can get some nice pictures of the city and vulcano Aqua.

Awesome views of the city and volcanoes. Watch your footing as some areas are a little steep. Some market stalls set up here too for souvenirs.

Beautiful views of the volcanos!! I took a taxi from my hotel up to the hill as was limited on time in Antigua. I went up at 7.45am just before the market vendors set up so hardly anyone there and couldn’t have asked for better...More

Took a little tuk tuk thing up to the top. Worth it. Was about 5 bucks total. It's always busy. Got there around 9:00 in the morning & there was already a bunch of people there. Easy to get too.
