I'm afraid that I hadn't expressed myself accurately. And because of
that, I'm not sure I understand you right.

Following the given example, my issue is that if I include \thepage on
every slide, I always get 0. The problem here is that pages in the PDF
structure itself are the same values as \thepage values (so, no matter
which viewer I use, I cannot jump to any page number, because all are 0).

Is this what you meant or is it something different?

I have just discovered what the problem is. Using the slides document
class, no pages are used, but slides. So it is necessary to
\renewcommand{\thepage}{\theslide}.

Thanks for your help,

Pablo
