Short but slightly strenuous hike . End result is the gorgeous panoramic views of Antigua. You can literally spend the entire evening on top of this hill.

Take a brief, yet strenuous hike to admire the panoramic views of Antigua. You can walk alone of use the free guide service offered by the tourist police.

A nice walk from the city center. The Cerro de la Cruz gives a very nice panoramic view of Antigua as well as a good view of the Volcan de Agua

Lovely views of Antigua and the surrounding mountains from the hill just outside of town. Robberies happen, so climb in a large group or get a police escort.

Beautiful views of Antigua and the Volcano Agua. Assaults and muggings of tourists is common as the day wears on, so take a police escort with you. The "tip" you give them is totally worth not getting stabbed and robbed.
