Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
Step onto the remote and otherworldly Playa de los Muertos, 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. Use our Puerto Vallarta tour planner to add Playa de los Muertos and other attractions to your Puerto Vallarta vacation plans.
