Whether you’re just visiting Puerto Vallarta or you live here, chances are good that you’ve heard of “The Cross”, “the Mirador”, or it’s official name “La Mirador de la Cruz” (the lookout from the cross). It’s a relatively short hike, time and distance-wise, but it’s about 250 steps so it’s unfortunately not something that every-body can do.
If you’re wondering how to get to la Mirador de la Cruz, here are some quick and easy directions for you, beginning at restaurante Casa Kimberly.
Pass under the bridge so Casa Kimberly is on your right, heading toward that great big round tree over there.
Take a right at the tree. The street is Miramar. This guy might also be hanging a right at the same time. If so, you can just follow him.
Head north on Miramar for several (5ish) blocks.
Take a right on Corona.
You’ll know if you’ve gone too far because Miramar drops right off into a severe downhill angle just after Corona.
The very next left is Calle Emilio Carranza, and just like the motorcycle guy, the guy in the blue is never not sitting on that corner. So if indeed he is there when you pass, take a left at that guy.
In front of you now is the only downhill action you’re going to be seeing for a while.
Head straight for that yellow painted area, and then up the hill toward the black truck in the upper center of this photo. We’ll be going straight past it (or whatever’s parked there now).
Just past the black truck (or whatever’s parked there now) will be a wide intersection with “corrugated” cement and this big, beautiful house. Turn right here, and up you go my friend.
I said UP.
This guy ran the whole thing, with a weighted pack. This guy is crazy pants.
This thing doesn’t work. Do not count on hitching a ride.
Made it. <3
