  • Beautiful Viewpoint with a View Over SJDS! From the Beach, the Ascent takes about 1 Hour, which is quite feasible even in the hot Temperatures. Admission costs $2$ pP.

  • We got a ride up to the statue and then walked back to town along the beach. The view from Cristo de a Misericordia was amazing in all directions. Definitely worth the trip!!  more »

  • 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.
