For a great hike and a gorgeous 360-degree view of Puerto Vallarta and environs, climb the hill overlooking Centro to the red-and-white transmission tower and large white cross.
Even more steps at the top of the steps but the spectacular views were worth the effort: pretty much all of PV, the bay, back into the canyons and hillsides.
