Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Do your self a favor. Dont enter and pay the S/5 entry fee to see some very lame rides and kitchy souvenire shops. Rather stop outside on the street and enjoy the same view for free.

Hazte un favor. No ingrese y pague la tarifa de entrada S/5 para ver algunos paseos muy cojadores y tiendas de recuerdos kitsch. Más bien, deténgase afuera en la calle y disfrute de la misma vista de forma gratuita.

Basically a tourist trap rip off. You can get the same view from the street and not pay 5 sol. Use the AllTrails app to do a pleasant walk/hike from city centre to the view point entrance. Go past the entrance on you loop back to town and you will get a better view from the street.

I went to this lookout as part of a city bus tour, and there's good news and bad news. The good news: it's a reasonably nice lookout and the view is quite attractive.

Unfortunately, the enterprising owners have decided that it is no longer going to be free (it used to be) - they're now charging everyone a ridiculous amount just for the privilege of looking at some mountains. This type of pay-per-play tourism reeks, and sets a terrible example for Arequipa tourism as a whole (there are plenty of free and lovely views of the mountains around this city). It's such a tragedy that such a nice lookout has been ruined by greed. Save your money, folks - you won't feel good about spending it here. Arequipa has some worthy attractions, but this shameful money-grab cannot be recommended.

You not only have a great view of the city and the volcanos behind it, also the upstream green valley and the hills around Arquipa do present themselves in best layout (maybe it was due to the season). After a couple of minutes even the last clouds lifted off El Misti

We visited this place in a clear blue-sky, mild-temperature day. The view of the city and its 3 volcanoes was breath-taking. Highly recommended. A taxi from downtown Arequipa to tehe Mirador was not even $4,00

This is my view from my/our flat. Every morning, w/o fail so far, i open the blinds at 6 am, and declare--it is going to be another sunny day. We do take the CU students at San Pablo for this view every year.

Clear views of the mountains and surrounding farmland. The first stop on our tour so luckily we didn't walk it like some of the others.

The viewpoint is located on the edge of Arequipa about an hour walk from the Plaza de Armas and does give great views across the countryside to the volcanoes that dominate the backdrop to the city. To be honest you don’t need to go as far as the Mirador as the main road on the approach acts a bit like a Malecon and offers the same views. If you don’t fancy the trek out here just head to the Mirador de Yanahuara which is within the city, about 20 minutes walk from the Plaza de Armas, also give great views of the volcanoes and is backed by the very pretty Plaza de Yanahuara where you can grab a shady seat to sample the traditional cheese ice-cream of Arequipa.

I have been going to Carmen Alto for years while out dog walking, it's been a good resting spot and the view is lovely. However, new owners have closed it off and are charging an entry fee and have also turned it into a multi event space: bar, restaurant, private function rental. I will not be going again.
