  • Very nice view of the bay but… 1- you have to work for it, what a climb!!! And 2- $2 for foreigners to get to the view point?!!! It’s a bit steep especially if you are not into the who Jesus thing! Bit of a rip off…
  • Worth the walk! We barely walked for 30-40mintues (pretty calm), and very safe in the morning. Be careful as there are massive ramps to get to the Cristo! You will need to pay 2$ for entrance, but definetly worth the price. Best views from San Juan beach.
