invigorating climb, nice views

it is a bit of an exercise, but worth it for the views at the top and along the way. only a couple others at the site when we went. very quite, peaceful.

Strenuous?, Yes. Rewarding? You bet, very rewarding. The climb to the light house will take some time and effort but the view of all of Mazatlan will take your breath away. You should take some water, but there is a little snack shop in the light house if you are like us and didn't plan well.

Have been up here many times by foot from the halfway point all the times, and half of the times by bike till couldn't go any higher because of the steps...Air is thin so you must go slow all the way unless you are in top shape and do a lot of running...The 360 views are unsurpassable with the ocean...

The best view of the city by far is from the top of this hill, which also includes the El Faro lighthouse. The hike up the hill is 25-30 minutes at a regular pace, and there's a guy at the top who sell water and Gatorade. See reviews of El Faro lighthouse for directions and more information
