Nice, short hike to the highest point in Providencia. The path is easy and on the way to the top you can see (and hear) frogs, blue lizards, yellow lizards and iguanas. It takes about 3 hours to get to the top and back .

We heard you must have a guid to find the way up but that's not correct. It's really only one way up. We walked fast, 1 hour up and 30 min down.

An amazing 360 view of all Providencia and Santa Catalina. Still worth it on rainy days. Try to enjoy not only the peak but also all the way to it. You can go without a guide but it is better to do it with people...More

Walked up the well-marked trail from Bottom House, it is about 3km one-way and not too difficult. Hiked down via a jungle trail to Freshwater Bay, only recommend this trail for dedicated hikers, it's very steep and easy to get lost.

As others have indicated, it took us about 90 minutes to ascend and 60 minutes to descend. You need to be in decent physical shape to do the hike, that said, there's nothing particularly difficult about the hike, it's just very energy intensive and the...More

The peak is the tallest mountain in the island of Providencia. The hike is about 14k (with return), and getting up will take you around 90 minutes or less if you are in good physical condition. It is a challenging walk, and the rocks can...More

Hi, looks like there is no other possible way to get up to the Peak other than to hike? AT this time I cannot do any hiking or walking long distances, so this is a bit disappointing. What about a cart or scooter or ATV just to do this? Is this allowed? thank you.

Hi, some people have mentioned horse riding, but for what I could see it wouldn't be possible as there are some parts where the vegetation gets on the way. But it's absolutely impossible for any motorized transportation to... More

Hola, espero que te hayas repuesto de la aventura!!!! Me encantaría hacerla también pero quisiera saber si es muy exigente. Somos dos personas de 64 y 56 años con exceso de peso y sin actividad física habitual. Te parece que es posible ( yendo con una persona local) que podamos hacerlo??? No tenemos problemas de salud, solo nos juega en contra la edad y el peso. Gracias por responder. Saludos
