The Basics

Playa 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, as it's also known, independently or as part of a beach-hopping tour.

When to Get There

As with all of Puerto Vallarta, the beach 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 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.
