Puerto Vallarta

When you think of Puerto Vallarta, the first thing you picture are beautiful beaches-and you are right to do so. There are a number of options available for you to spend the day sunbathing on the seashore; you can either head off to the beaches in the north, those near the city center, or the more secluded beaches which stretch southwards-it all depends what you are looking for.

The northernmost beaches stretch from the Historical Center to the elegant Marina Vallarta; the most famous ones being Flamingos, Las Glorias, Playa de Oro, Boca de Tomates and Camarones. There are also hotels, restaurants and golf courses in the area, as well as El Salado ecological reserve.

Those who want to try their hand at activities such as flyboarding and flysurfing, should head to Playa Camarones, which has been awarded the Blue Flag eco-label for being such a clean, comfortable and safe beach, just like Playa de Oro, Palmares, Amapas, Conchas Chinas I and II, Garza Blanca and Sheraton.

Located right alongside Puerto Vallarta’s downtown area, Playa Los Muertos is the most popular beach among locals, and is ideal for catching the sunset while sipping on a cold drink or strolling along the iconic pier.

Last but not least, there are also beaches to the south, some of which can be reached by land, others by sea. Quieter and more rugged, these beaches are ideal for those looking to get in touch with nature. You can choose between Colomitos, Quimixto, Las Ánimas and Yelapa, among others.

There are also private hotel beaches, as well as Las Caletas, which is only accessible by sea, and is famous for having belonged to Hollywood celebrity, director and producer John Houston.
