Cerro de Jesús

Mountain in Jalapa

Just outside Jalapa you'll find Cerro de Jesús (1885m), the largest mountain in the area. It is dominated by the Jesus Mountain coffee plantation, which boasts 400 hectares of organic coffee. But on the flanks of the mountain you'll also find a small local community, intact primary forest and a gushing 8m waterfall. If you’re up to it, you can hike to the peak.
