Los Muertos Beach, Puerto Vallarta

4.2
#1 of 16 in Parks in Puerto Vallarta
Step onto the remote and otherworldly Los Muertos Beach, 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. With our world travel planner, Puerto Vallarta attractions like Los Muertos Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • One of the best beaches in the hotel area of Puerto Vallarta. The continued passage of street vendors may be a little awkward, but you can even find something good with them at a good price. The beach is clean and quiet.
