What to Do:

Located in the heart of Zona Romantica, Playa Los Muertos is located near a ton of great restaurants, shops, and all sorts of activities! 

Playa los Muertos is an excellent place to spend an entire day. You can bring your own beach chairs, or you can sit at one of the many restaurants and get a beach chair/table in exchange for your business. Swell Beach Bar is our favorite spot! The drinks are reasonably priced, the chairs are comfortable, and the service is always fast.

At Los Muertos Beach you will also find many beach vendors selling shrimp on a stick, ceviche, cold drinks, blankets, cigars, and pretty much anything else you can think of. Don’t automatically dismiss every vendor, some of them have really good food! Hillary is particularly fond of the potato chips with hot sauce on them! However, if you aren’t in the mood, a simple no gracias will do the trick. Some vendors are more persistent than others, just remain polite and they will leave you alone.

If you are feeling a little more adventurous you can rent a jet ski, go parasailing, go fishing, or take a water taxi to Yelapa or Las Animas!

What makes Los Muertos so great?

We usually aren’t the types to like big beaches that can get really busy, but Los Muertos is definitely an exception. So what makes it so great? First, though it can get really busy, we have never encountered any annoying people on the beach. Maybe that’s just pure luck, but we can only report on our experiences! Also, the proximity to restaurants makes it really convenient. You can go sit at the beach for a few hours, go grab some food, and head back to the beach all without any headaches!

One thing that makes Los Muertos Beach so special, and really Puerto Vallarta as a whole, is that although there are a lot of American tourists, there are also a lot of Mexican tourists as well. I am not sure why this is nice, other than if you are on vacation it is usually a tad annoying to be surrounded by a crowd of people that you could live next to in Dallas.

If you are headed to Puerto Vallarta, Los Muertos Beach should be one of your first stops. It is a great beach to get your vacation started and an excellent way to really feel the vibe of Puerto Vallarta. Of course, there are a ton of other great beaches in Puerto Vallarta. You can read about one here and we will be writing about many more in the days and weeks to come.

Keep it Kinetic,

Hillary and Greg
