Lots of shade. It was dry when we hiked so some steep spots were a bit slippery with lose dirt and gravel.

Nice walk, short with some stairs. Go early in the day as there is very little shade and is very hot by 10am. Be prepared to pay 10 peso for washroom at the bottom.

Exhilarating hike. The too map ends before the site entrance which adds 300 feet elevation gain through metal and rock steps. Closer to 1.6 miles each way.

Incline the whole way up, made up of stair-like rocks. Lots of shade. Trail gets really busy on weekends. Views at the top are neat! Description here says dogs are allowed but it seems that’s changed - no dogs allowed as of today, 2/8/2020 (there’s security who checks before you start trail).

Good trail for families with a good number of stairs which makes it a good workout. Went on Christmas Eve and the trail was pretty crowded. Views at the top of the lighthouse are amazing!

Worth the effort! A very clear path the whole way, albeit a bit rocky in some places. The last 50 feet down to the beach is down some sharp slippery rocks, but we all made it just fine. Definitely better to wear close toed shoes, bring a hat because there’s no shade at all, and bring 2 bottles of water, and bring your swimsuit! Would definitely do this hike again, the views were unreal. Still worth it, even though we saw no sea lions on this day.

Shaded but be ready for a lot of steps. Get here early to avoid the crowds. Trail etiquette seems to be nonexistent. Cool temple at the top.

Very steep. Pretty easy to climb because it has stairs almost all the way. Gets very crowded after noon. The best time to go is before 9am.

Fun trail. Not very hard but a nice work out. Didn’t see any sea lions, but still rewarding with some stunning views. lose rocks at points but I did it comfortably in trainers and my partner in sandals.

great morning hike. we went to the beach at the end of the trail and found the trail easy to follow, though a bit steep in a couple spots. On the way back we did the side trail to see the sea lions, that part is a bit of a scramble at times with long spines cactus right along side the rough trail. it was worth it though - the views are fantastic and in addition to the sea lions we saw at least 6 whales spouting and coming to the surface. Wear a hat and good hiking shoes and bring plenty of water.

Enjoyed the trail. More like a pilgrimage. Bring 55 pesos with you to check out the pyramid. Well shaded hike.

Great views. But the real treasure is the historical value and spiritual significance to the Maya people that still live in the area today. The ocean is a beautiful site to see from the back side of the castle. PS. Some of the best views are near the wall opposite of “The Castle”

So much fun here! We loved hiking to the top & riding bikes around the jungle. My kids had a blast too

Great trail right out of town. Only negative was having to walk on barely any shoulder road for a bit. Would rate moderate but for the initial climb to lighthouse. Plenty of good foot and hand grabs though.
