  • A place that if you go to San Juan de el Sur you must visit if or if not you forget the camera, the photos from here are spectacular, if you go on foot carried enough water for the journey, it is enough to walk but worth it.

  • Beautiful and peaceful place. The view....you have to go for that view. One word: "amazing", nature is something else!
  • Nice view over SJDS. Short but steep hike from town (~2km). Doable in flip-flops. A man at the gate asked for 60c per person which corresponds to the 2$ tourist price advertised several times during the hike. It won’t be the most spectacular thing you’d have done during your trip but still a fun activity that doesn’t take much time off your day.
