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.

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.

This has one of the ultimate views overlooking the town of Antigua. Great views of surrounding volcanoes. Excellent food at reasonable prices at the restaurant overlooking this superb vista.

It’s easy to get to and the reward is outstanding. Even if the weather is bad, you can still see the city and the outlines of the surrounding volcanoes and it is a nice 20 minute walk up some maintained stairs.

It’s so easy to get to this beautiful view that it would be silly not to go if you’re visiting Antigua.

Go early in the morning before the clouds and rain come for the rainy season. They say it isn’t safe to walk at night. There are some vendors at the top of the hill that sell snacks and souvenirs. It is a bit of a...More
