  • A nice hike that's easily accessible from town. We only had one full day on San Cristobal to explore (wish we had more, there's plenty to do here!) and spent part of the afternoon walking up to Cerro....  more »
  • The hike wasn't long and wasn't difficult as there is proper path going up and hence there is no need for hiking shoes. Great views from the viewing platform. Highly recommended.  more »
