Just about everyone will add that it's an amazing view, but try to go on a clear day! Clouds will definitely cover up the volcano. Also, if you don't bring water, don't worry; there are vendors up there to buy. The hike is a bit...More

Short walk up a nice path to this lovely view point. It was the first thing we did in Antigua and was a great introduction to the little city. It's a must do!

Visited this place as part of my Antigua day tour. If not the best part, your trip to antigua is wasted witout visiting this spot. Amazing view of the city from the north with the Agua Volcan at the south. Beautiful nature around you.
