This is well worth the short hike up from the center of Antigua. Although the hill is teaming with tourists, the view is great and you can shoot a bunch of iconic photos of Antigua and the Agua Volcano.

The trek was torture on me...but the payoff was worth it. The view once you climbed to the cross of Antigua and the countryside was magnificent!

You don't want to go too early or too late at night. It was recommended to us by a local friend that you go between the hours of noon and three- otherwise, you really do take a risk with people waiting on the path for...More

If you are just going to get a good view of the volcano, it may well be pointless. The day we went, it was cloudy and so there wasn’t really much to see. There erca few stalls selling souvenirs nd refreshments.

A must-see if you visit Antigua. Great place to just spend a little while (or a long while) with friends enjoying the view and/or shopping from local vendors. I just wish they'd keep it a little bit cleaner.

The best views of the city! The volcano agua is the best thing in the world, Antigua looks like a post card you have to check it out!

Stunning view, definitely would recommend. It’s a bit of a journey up if you’re walking, we took a car. There was a small table selling local trinkets and textiles if that’s what you’re interested in.

My husband and I visited to see the views of the city. We took our private car but otherwise you can take a tuk tuk up to the top. The charge is minimal less than q10 depending on vehicle size. The views were well worth...More
