This is the best beach in all of Puerto Vallarta . It is located in the Romantic zone in the Old town in the gay village area. The most friendliest people ever.

Not too crowded this time of year - just before high season. This is why we choose to return here annually now. It's relaxing, great shops and good service on the beach if you choose to get a berverage or eats. View is peaceful and you can sit here for hours on end just relaxing.

The beach is steep and not good for wading, but beautiful for spending the day at the beach and watching the sun set.

... Beautiful beach with quite a few beach restaurants, umbrellas, margaritas or piña coladas (also available in Virgin style) and djust watch the gay (in many happy ways) crowd go by. I love living in the area, PV viejo, and just walk out to the beach.

We spent 3 days on this beach during our weeklong visit which provided us with some very interesting people watching. This is one of the most liveliest beaches in PV especailly given its name.

Great spot to swim, play, and eat seafood on the beach. WE plan a whole day. Get there early before the rush, just relax all day. It is one of the best things to do in PV.

If you have the possibility spend some time here. It really has that soothing, relaxing Vallarta feeling. Loved that occasional mariacci sound. Good restaurants nearby too.

After walking through the Malecon, we continued through to Playa Los Muertos and everything changed for the better. From prices to authenticity. Loved the food and extra cold beer by the beach. We loved the experience of parasailing which was about 1/2 price that being offered at our resort plus the extra fresh seafood that we were served.

This beach is the place to go to see the locals. We love sitting under a palapa with a bucket of beers. The beach is clean and the waves are not so bad. Taking a dip in this popular beach is super fun!
