One of the new attractions that you must visit if you live or will be visiting Mazatlan is the new Glass Floor Viewpoint located on the top of the largest natural lighthouse in the world.
Located at the southern end of the beautiful bay of Mazatlan on 157 meters of altitude you will find the Cerro del Creston, which is a prominent natural formation that shelters on its top the Lighthouse of the port and where recently built a Glass Floor Viewpoint to contemplate the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets of Mexico.
The Glass Floor Viewpoint is a structured bridge with metallic profiles oriented to the west and 20 meters long, 10 of them are covered with flagstone and the other 10 with tempered glass reinforced with a polymer, 3 crystals and 2 intermediate plates of safety laminate. To get there you will have to make a walk of approximately 30 minutes (the time may vary according to your physical condition) composed of a footpath and stairway where at different points you will find rest areas that will allow you to have an extraordinary vision of the beautiful views offered by this natural attraction.
From the Glass Floor Viewpoint you will have a unique view of the bay of Mazatlan, from its Historic Center, Paseo Olas Altas, North Beach and its islands that are protected by the flora and fauna found there.
To get to ‘Cerro del Creston’ you can go by bicycle or public transport. If you prefer to take a taxi or go in your car, at the foot of the hill you will find a parking area.
Do not forget to bring liquid to hydrate and comfortable shoes that give support and grip as some parts of the route are irregular. The ideal time to make the ascent and descent are in the early hours of the day or before nightfall and remember that Mazatlan enjoys a warm climate, especially in summer. Also for your comfort the path lighting is activated automatically after sunset.
