Puerto Vallarta began phase one of the Mirador de la Cruz Project in 2014 with the construction of the stairs leading to one of the area’s most dramatic views of the bay.
Now the city is ready to move the project into phase two, which will include a tower and main terrace area for observing the city at a cost of $6.5 million pesos.
“We are not rediscovering something new, we are just making this area more accessible and welcoming to tourists in our city who will have the opportunity to view the beauty of the bay from above,” said Oscar Perez Flores, Director of City Tourism.
The final project will include restrooms and a range of other services, including a cable car for those who are unable to access the viewpoint from the stairs.
Project plans indicate a concession area, multiple covered sitting areas, and a lookout tower to view the city and bay.
The project is scheduled to be completed within three years and is expected to be funded by local and federal government.
