Description

a overinght standig is possible. Not alowed to stay longer. Not for big mobiles, 23 feet was no problem.

a very grandios view, in daytime many visitors, hard to get a parking place, in evening they leave. in the nicht you stay alone. We feel very save, a police man was there the whole night to save the holy equipement.

Latest Check-Ins

We arrive around 3pm but the parking was full. We came back around 5pm and was better. The gate for the monument closes at 6pm and open at 7.30am. Toilets 5pesos are inside so we have no accès on closing hours. We had a very nice and quite night, alone. We felt very safe, we travel with a Fiat ducato 6mt long, no problems to came up here.

Report Check-In

Stayed in the parking lot. We were there on a Saturday night. Most people leave after sunset. Though there was some buses and I believe people who stayed overnight in the monument.
The noise starts early and the crowds were coming.
We were going to stay down the hill in a big parking lot - but the police said it was safer at the monument. In the morning we went back to the large parking lot- had it to ourselves for hours- while buses and people headed up to the monument. The lot is just up a small incline from the last main vendors at the bottom.

8km of cobbled road to get here so very slow going in our van! Incredible views so very much worth it. We arrived at sunset, and drove all the way to the top and the level spaces. There were still a few coaches and cars but they had all gone by about 10pm. Toilets 5 pesos but open all night and not attended in the evening. It did get windy at night but was not a problem for sleeping, very comfortable temperature. We didn't see any security or police.

I think this is one of the places calling for discretion. I would not dare drugging RV there.... We have 16ft ordinary looking van, did stay on the top level parking lot, had very nice view after sunset and good sleep during the night. We left just after sunrise, before first early birds showed up.

Crowded until sunset. Completely empty just one hour later. Level parking spaces on the top parking lot.

Report Check-In

This is a tourist attraction Cristo Rey (20m tall Jesus statue), allegedly also geographic center of Mexico. Parking didn't seem very level as the whole place is on the mountain, you might be able to look for good parking once all the tourist/worshipers leave. We didn't sleep here, but might be a cool spot.

Really nice place. great view. When we visited, the policeman was also there the whole time, but did not bother us at all.
however, when we visited, the wind picked up
heavily at around 2:30am and made sleeping impossible. we needed to park further down the hill, where we were not so exposed to the wind...
