Would you like to find a secret place with an incredible view? You are in the right spot!
Probably it is no longer a secret, during the last year, this place gained tremendous popularity. I'm talking about the lookout at Cerro de la Cruz.
In recent months, thanks to social media, this place has become quite famous in Puerto Vallarta, given that locals and tourists venture to challenge their physical condition, the lookout location and geographical conditions make it the "ideal spot” for jogging and aerobics.
The lookout has a platform from which you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view of the whole city, that's the real reward for reaching the top.
To find access to the route that takes you to the lookout, you have to get downtown up to the boardwalk and just where the sculptures of the Rotonda del Mar, "the famous chairs" from sculptor Alejandro Colunga, turn on Abasolo street heading towards the mountains, the rest of the way will be easy. If you have doubts, you can ask local people around the area, we are sure they will provide directions in a friendly way.
Are you ready? I recommend you to go well prepared with comfortable clothes, sports shoes and energetic drinks in abundance because the ride is a bit long and may represent a challenge.
The best time to visit the lookout would be in the mornings, when the first sun rays begin to peek through the mountains and the weather is quite cool or otherwise, at sunset, to enjoy the entertainment and watercolor skies over the vast ocean.
