This beach and new pier hold many attractions. Do you want ponga (boat) to see the waterfall at Yelapa, or maybe an outing to John Huston's seaside park for scuba, snorkeling, swimming, canoeing, massage or just sipping margarita's under the umbrella or in the hammock while reading a good book. Or horseback riding in Yelpaor parasailing of the Los Muertos... More

We enjoyed the Playa de los Muertos since it was more diverse and we experienced more of the locals and the Mexican families. The water was clean and perfect temperature.

My kids loved swimming in playa los muertos, the water was very calm and clean which made it ideal for the kids. There are also many restaurants and bars to stop and get a drink or a snack. I love the beach vendors and they're everywhere which made my shopping easy!

Come and watch the amazing views of the sunsets, and enjoy the great drinks here along the pier at night. The beach to us is the best in town unless you drive farther to where Night of The Iguana was filmed! Take a stroll along the beach with a drink at nite! So romantic!!!!

This is PV's most popular beach for lounging, sunning, eating and drinking. The pier is a beautiful and romantic place to be, especially at sunset and into the night time.

Our vacation was for the first two weeks of April, after the hustle and bustle of March break. There were plenty of free chairs on the beach and the service was prompt and friendly. The weather was sunny everyday and the water was great for swimming. Loved heading down to the beach (just two blocks from our accommodations (Signature by... More

This is really a better beach and swimming than many of the big hotels have. It's more crowded, but fun and worth it.

I love Playa Los Muertos. It's a great sandy, swimming beach. Great to lay out all day sipping margaritas and enjoying the sun. Los Muertos has awesome places to lounge like La Palapa, no cover fee (you only pay what you consume and they include chairs, tables, towels, etc) a great menu, service, comfortable lounge chairs and a great view...
