Playa Mismaloya Puerto Vallarta

Sunday is beach day in Puerto Vallarta for tourists and residents alike.   Playa Los Muertos and the town beaches get quite crowded on this day, so it can be lots of fun to take off to one of the many close by beaches.  Playa Mismaloya is located 20 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta and you can get there by bus, taxi or car.  Take Carratera a Mismaloya south – you access the public beach on the road just to the south of the Barcelo Resort.

Playa Mismaloya is located within a small bay that is fed by the Rio Mismaloya and it is a fantastic place for swimming as there is no strong  tide or undertow.  You can hire a boat to go fishing or to take a trip around Los Arcos.  Jet skis and parasailing are available.  There are several beachfront restaurants with fish, seafood and Mexican food items and they provide beach service including tables, chairs and chaises and of course bar service so you can have all the beers or margaritas you desire.

You can take a stroll along the beach and you can also see what remains of the Night of the Iguana movie set that was filmed in this very location 49 years ago in 1963.

It is a great way to spend time with friends or family and while away an afternoon at the beach.
