A must see attraction. Los Muertos is certainly the favorite and most traditional beach of the people of Puerto Vallarta. Getting there is fairly easy. Walk along the Malecon, cross the pedestrian bridge over the Cuale River, and continue past Lazaro Cárdenas Park.
Do not miss the view of the emblematic pier in the distance, with its sail over the sea and multicolored night lights. In 2023, the Los Muertos Pier will celebrate its 10th Anniversary, having been renovated and refurbished. The pier is used to board pangas and water taxis if you want to visit the beaches south of Puerto Vallarta.
The hustle and bustle of local families gathering around Los Muertos Pier is a constant presence throughout the year. Still, the beach is wide and long enough to find a good spot, whether you want to relax in the sun or enjoy a snack from vendors offering grilled fish and shrimp, fresh Tehuamixtle oysters, delicious sliced mangoes and cucumbers seasoned with salt, lime and chili, or a thirst-quenching tuba. There are also plenty of strolling musicians who play traditional Mexican tunes for a tip.
The beachfront is also home to prestigious fine dining restaurants serving international cuisine, cozy bars with a more casual and relaxed atmosphere, and spas and beauty shops to pamper yourself. On Saturday mornings between November and April, visit the nearby Olas Altas Farmer’s Market and pick up some supplies for your day at the beach.

The southern end of Playa Los Muertos is known for its popular beach clubs that cater to the LGBTQ+ crowd. It is also home to the original sculpture “The Boy on the Seahorse”, by Mexican master artist Rafael Zamarripa. This sculpture has been a worldwide icon of Puerto Vallarta since 1968.
Los Muertos Pier is a pier along Playa de los Muertos in Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romántica, in the Mexican state of Jalisco. Completed in 2013, the structure replaced an older wooden pier depicted in the 1964 film The Night of the Iguana. It offers views of the Bay of Banderas and features a central metal structure which resembles a ship’s sail.
Designed by José de Jesus Torres Vega, the pier has been described as a symbol of the city.
