This popular attraction in Puerto Plata is normally just visited for the Cristo Redentor located at the top. However, the whole area surrounding the statue is a national park tasked with preserving the natural significance of the region.

Visitors to the site will find a variety of ways to explore the area. The two most popular are simply hiking through the forest and mountains, and taking a cable car up the mountain right to the statue. Both give a different kind of view and have their benefits.
