Nice bit of exercise! I walked up solo on a Sunday afternoon. Just walk north on 1a Avenida, start up the hill, then turn left on the walking path. Online maps work fine. Perfectly safe for a woman alone on a Sunday afternoon, as there...More

Cool spot to go and see. Easy 15 minute walk to the top by stairs. The entrance is at the very north east of town, safe to walk to and bring your phone, no problems. I went in the afternoon and for the sunrise.

This place provides a nice view of Antigua, Volcano De Agua, and the surrounding towns! Its absolutely free, and the walk up isn't too strenuous or long. Overall, a good place to visit at the start of your trip.
