A lookout place with a great view over San Cristobal. You can see all of the most important monuments, churches, temples and almost the whole city from there. Excellent location for making the best photos. Open from 9:00 to 2:00 and from 4:00 to 7:00 For more information, contact Nolberto or Romeo at SolMaya Language & Arts School.

A few flights of stairs to climb, but worth the effort. Nice view of the city and Iglesia de Guadalupe at the other end of town.

Nice to get above the city to see it, but the views are limited and there are better places in the town that give better views with less hassle.

didn't count the steps, but it was worth the effort to scale the hill and get the view of the city laid out below. sunset is the best time- the colors are amazing- and then head for cocktail hour.

The mirador gives you some nice views from San Cristobal and the surrounding area. It's worth the 15-minute walk from the main square.

Not much to see, it's great for pictures, ask for directions. The surroundings seem a little unsafe.
