Mirador del Cristo de la Misericordia reviews
SJDS's single most visited attraction. And a must-do. Our B&B, Villa Arcadia, is on the hill below the statue. Let me give a few pointers. Taxis from town are $10 or from the Port $20. Taxi prices..... more »
Had been to San Juan del Sur before and could see the Cristo down from the town but had never taken the time to get up there. We finally made it! After a ten minute drive from the center of town... more »
Great view of San Juan del Sur and an excellent spot to watch the sunset. It’s just a short walk from the town but the paved road up is fairly steep. It’s open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, although you can stay later and costs $2 for tourist and $1 for locals. Well worth a visit.
I love it.!! The view is so beautiful. The people friendly, and everything clean!
