  • The viewpoint with a large statue of Christ of Mercy dominates the Bay of San Juan del Sur, a beautiful postcard that characterizes the tourist destination of Playa par excellence in Nicaragua. At night it looks illuminated and is a reference point from the beach during the day you can climb. Enjoy the Viewpoint of the Christ of Mercy because: LIFE... it's a TRAVEL!

  • 96 steps to the top, so a bit of a hike but not too bad. Fairly steep incline. Much easier to come down! There's a great view of the area from atop of Cristo de La Misericordia. Worthwhile adventure.
  • This statue overlooks the marina of San Juan del Sure, Nicaragua on a very prominent and very steep hill. From the parking area you will huff and puff up 96 steps to reach the top. But don't worry. Jesus will be waiting for you if you have $2 to get through the gate towards the top. Nice view of the city and marina.
