We had a great day on cerro Bernardo. We took the cable cart up which was reasonably priced and good fun and had a picnic at the top looking over the city before walking down. Very enjoyable.

Save yourself 150 pesos and enjoy the nice walk up. The trail starts at the big monument and takes about 35-40 mins to get to the top. Once there you can enjoy a nice cold beer and coffee at the cafe.
