El Mirador Centro Turistico

Viewpoint in La Cruz

Don’t cruise through La Cruz without stopping at this oddly shaped ‘tourist and cultural center’ on the western edge of town. You might stumble across an exhibit or a concert, but the main attraction is the jaw-dropping 180-degree view of Bahía Salinas. You can also peek into Nicaragua from here. The cafe at the back is a fine lunch stop.

Note that opening hours can be inconsistent.
