And when you get to the end of the trail, theres's a fantastic view of the downtown and Ciudad Vieja.

Besides the great views, the area around the lighthouse also seems to be home for a colony of stray cats.

The lighthouse is rather small. It's not the Buxton lighthouse as far as "landmark lighthouses" go. And apparently, from the family at the top when I shot that picture, you can go up to the top. Well, if little children can do, I can, too!

And the views are nice:

|And back to where we started|

Actually, given how tiny each step of the staircase, you could argue that the stairs were easier for a child- sized foot rather than my size 11's. So no wonder she's giggling. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
