Playa de los Muertos, Puerto Vallarta

3.9
#1 of 11 in Parks in Puerto Vallarta
Beach Nature / Park
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.

  • Playa de los Muertos is the beach to be at. Lots of palapas and umbrellas with beach chairs. Cafes and restaurants serving beach-goers food and drinks. I recommend sitting in front of Ritmo's Beach Ca...  more »
  • Nice and clean beach that was easy to reach. Many restaurants and bars along the beach and the promenade. The only negative was all beach vendors. Some days were those that "flies" came several per minute which was very tiring in the long run. Much to look at at the beach and we found a place that had lounge chairs that you could use without staying at the hotel. Delicious lunches and cocktails as well as beautiful beach walks brightened our days
