We hired a Tuk Tuk to take us up the mountain to see the Cerro de la Cruz. It was a nice lookout. The most disappointing part was the Tuk Tuk driver who ripped us off. One should verify the price before hiring a driver....More

We took a tuk-tuk up (but be sure to barter over the price) and walked down. It was a fun Sunday afternoon activity. The view was great and the path down was a well maintained cement sidewalk.

Amazing views. El Fuego erupted while we were there. Go first thing as it usually gets cloudy in afternoon

It is a steady hike up, but not very long and so worth the view of the city! The volcano is a wonderful backdrop for pictures of Antigua.

From the Cerro de la Cruz you have an amazing view all around Antigua and the volcanos. It is an easy walk, you do not need any hiking shoes at all. Go there when the sky is clear, so you get amazing shots from there!...More

You can hike up the 309+ stairs or get a car to the top. Either way there are great views over the city and if you are lucky Agua volcano.

Thrilling panorama of Antigua Guatemala. Just 2 minutes from the Central Square by foot. Parking is available as well as an opportunity to buy some souvenirs as well as cold beverages.

Great view. It’s kind of removed from the main town area. Be careful this is an easy place to get mugged as it’s isolated. Do not go alone at dusk or dawn. Take Uber It’s way cheaper then a taxi or a Tuk Tuk.

Not that tough a hike up, it's mainly stairs and if you get tired along the way there are benches to take a rest on. The view at the top is 100% worth it. You can see Agua Volcano if you stand in the middle...More
