Fodor's Review

Southwest of Puerto Plata, this mountain soars 2,600 feet above sea level and is notable for its huge statue of Christ. Up there also are botanical gardens that, despite efforts, still are not memorable. You can choose to hire a knowledgeable English-speaking guide for $5 per person. A cable car takes you to the top for a spectacular view. The cars usually wait until filled to capacity before going up—which can make them crowded; and should the electricity happen to go off, there is no backup generator. You should visit in the morning, preferably by 9 am; by afternoon, the cloud cover rolls in, and you can see practically nothing. The vendors are particularly tenacious here. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
