right next to the river - so the water was brackish and dirty. Could not see your hand 6 inches under the water

The beach was full of activities - both water and sky. People were really enjoying themsevles and were in the water very early in the morning til just before dusk. Made me wish that I liked beach water.

it was kept clean and considering none of us are 'beach' people, we spent most of our days there. So that must say something.

Best beach and surf in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta has great restaurants, shops and sunset view. Whale watching in the winter and spring.

Plenty of small waves. Obviously stirs up the sand, so snorkeling is a waste of time unfortunately. But nice sand, shallow safe water. In July it was warm!

Water was very warm. The beaches were clean and many people enjoying themselves in the water. Many palapas & beach lounges on the beach to relax on.

The sand is grey, so not as pretty as some places, but the water gets deeper very gradually, and the waves were enough for young ones to boogie board nicely but not too big.

It is the rainy season, and the rain in the mountains washes into the ocean daily. The result is dirty, cloudy, nasty water
