Beach of the Dead (Playa de los Muertos) Tours

3 Reviews
For an authentic and lively Puerto Vallarta beach experience, the Beach of the Dead (Playa de los Muertos) can’t be beat. Located just south of Olas Altas Beach in the Romantic Zone, this gay-friendly stretch of sand fronts a pier and is lined with bars and restaurants. Locals and families also love this beach and its diverse crowd.

The Basics
Playa de los Muertos is the Romantic Zone’s top attraction and crowded compared to the rest of Puerto Vallarta’s beaches. The water can be good for swimming, and out of the water the ambiance and people watching will keep you entertained. Come evening, the beachfront restaurants serve gourmet cuisine against the backdrop of romantic Vallarta sunsets.

You can visit the Beach of the Dead independently or as part of a beach-hopping tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Beach of the Dead is ideal for all beachgoers. Families may prefer to be near the pier, where swimming can be better for children.
  • Remember to bring sun protection and plenty of water, as the beach offers little shade.
  • Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to rent.

How to Get There
Playa de los Muertos is located in the south of Puerto Vallarta, across the bridge over the Cuale River from the north side. Take the bus that says Centro (downtown) or a taxi; if you’re driving, follow Highway 200.

When to Get There
As with all of Puerto Vallarta, the Beach of the Dead is lovely pretty much year-round. Winter sees large numbers of visitors; during this time, plan to arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds and take advantage of the beach’s limited street parking.

Romantic Zone Highlights
No visit to Playa de los Muertos is complete without a stroll along the winding cobblestone streets of Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone (Old Town). With artisan shops, farmers markets, and street-side taco stands, this area of Vallarta maintains a more traditional, laid-back feel than the rest of the city. Don’t miss a walk along the newly reconstructed pier.
