Although it may be a bit different, and I wouldn't suggest it for senior travelers, the trip up to Magic Mountain was quite memorable. Road conditions were abysmal, and the hike... read more

Although it may be a bit different, and I wouldn't suggest it for senior travelers, the trip up to Magic Mountain was quite memorable. Road conditions were abysmal, and the hike up to the point was carefully navigated with the aid of ropes, but the holy grail was definitely the panorama that awaited us when we reached the places selected...

The trip up Magic Mountain was tortuous and can only be done in a 4x4 vehicle. The views were spectacular and our guide highlighted the points of interest. as we were on a round the Island trip this was the starting point and well worth the cost of the trip alone.

Not all ATV tours visit this location. You will miss out if you don't get the spectacular photo from the peak

Well worth the hike....wear good tennis shoes! The walk is not for the faint at heart. Once you get to the top you will definitely want lots of pictures....
