“Worth the walk!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Sightseeing in Cerro de la Cruz is a must when you visit Antigua. A 20 minute walk form La Plaza, you have a view of the whole town.

“Great hike, amazing views”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I was talked into taking this hike and it was well worth it. I was not in great shape but with patience from my friends and the anticipation of great views, I made it! Antigua and the volcano looked amazing.

“Best views of Antigua!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This is absolutely worth the walk. Best to go on a clear day to get a breathtaking view of Antigua and the surrounding volcanoes.

“A lovely view of Antigua and the VOlcanoes in the Distance”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The food here is good..not world class, but good, not too may menu options. We take visitors for the views which on a clear day are astounding. The property is large and though there are wheelchair ramps for your own wheelchair the distance from the entrance to the actual restaurant so wheel chair users must have someone strong to push them. Also anyone with trouble walking or angina might find it too long a walk. Gorgeous views for the modestly fit though..be sure to go into the chapel to stand behind the altar to feel you are atop the trees. Heavenly.

“Great view of Antigua”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Easy walk, lovely view and definitely worth seeing. I'd heard warnings about safety and the strenuous walk but found neither.
