Puerto Vallarta Rear Light, Mexico

Thanks to Joost Keesing for this photo of the former Puerto Vallarta Range Rear Light, inactive since 1970. The front light, located directly on the waterfront, is well known and frequently photographed. The rear light, tucked away in a densely built area three blocks to the east and one block south, is rarely visited or photographed.
