Cerro de la Cruz – Things to Do in Antigua, Guatemala

Cerro de la Cruz is located a three minute drive or a 15 minute walk from Central Antigua up a very steep hill.

This is considered to be the best place to see Antigua from a bird’s eye view.

Free things to do in Antigua

It is rare that you can do something that is fun for free in Antigua. Especially getting an amazing view of this small city that is surrounded by volcanoes.


Perfect view of the entire city. It’s really quite small. It’s said that Antigua is ten blocks squared.


And what an imposing Volcano view


NOTE: Cerro de la Cruz can be a very lonely. It is also a place with a lot of people being robbed and women raped.

I’m not saying this to scare you off, but make sure you go during the day, and never alone.
