Los Muertos Beach, Puerto Vallarta

4.2
#1 of 16 in Parks in Puerto Vallarta
Step onto the remote and otherworldly Los Muertos Beach, whose name translates as "Beach of the Dead." Bordered by martian-esque hills, and with a coarse mosaic of sand, the beach's bizarre rock formations contrast sharply against the blue, wavy sea in the background. Secluded and unspoiled, the beach sits at the bottom of a fairly steep and rugged path leading down from the parking lot. Don’t forget to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, and your own shade if required, as well as your camera to capture images of the desolate-looking paradise. With our world travel planner, Puerto Vallarta attractions like Los Muertos Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • One of the best beaches in the hotel area of Puerto Vallarta. The continued passage of street vendors may be a little awkward, but you can even find something good with them at a good price. The beach is clean and quiet.

  • Good for party, day or night, not quiet, not cheap ether, locals are fun and friendly. Not a good parking options, so think in arriving by uber or bus if you are not in a hotel near by.  more »

  • I liked very much that the beach is public, in some places do not let you pass, but here there is no problem at all that.
  • Beautiful, the beaches in Pueto Vallarta are beautiful, you always have to marvel at places like this.
  • I love it, usually there are always many people, I recommend you visit the beach early in the week so that you do not have to deal with finding a shaded space to put their things, if your hotel is close have a profit, as most hotels offer lounge chairs.
  • best place ever in Mexico
  • Little crowded and dirty. There are better beaches to be found.
