About Playa Los Muertos Pier, Puerto Vallarta

Every major city has at least one tourist attraction that is clearly and sheerly a tourist trap, made with the blatant intention of capturing passing tourists, and it's still impossible to give them a miss because they are so good. This pier is one of them. Made famous by a 1960s movie, the pier's latest incarnation was revealed in 2013, when architect Jose de Jesus Torres Vega shaped it to look like a sweeping, curving conch shell. It's barely two hundred feet long, yet it's always bustling. Fishermen cast their lines and couple canoodle. Boats wait to take tourists to other beautiful locations - Las Animas, Quimixto, Mismaloya, Yelapa. Two beaches flank the pier area, supporting it with restaurants, bars, beach clubs and water sports outfits. But perhaps the best time visit is at night, when the pier is illuminated in dazzling color by led lights.

Playa Los Muertos Pier, Puerto Vallarta Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the latest features of the malecon is this curving wonderful for just a stroll or to catch a boat for yalapa or other excursions.

  • Great place to relax and watch all that goes on and enjoy some mexican street food, bring your hats and umbrellas shade is limited

  • Cool piece of Puerto Vallarta's personality. You've gotta take a little stroll at night. (For families travelling, some of the stretch of beach close by is very prevalently gay. I always like to be somewhat prepared to answer questions if my children see things they aren't used to, so I thought it was worth mentioning for those who are intentional in their parenting.)

  • Beautiful strip along the water. Prefect for a stroll with your significant other

  • Beautiful scenic shot. They could easily have built a simple metal grate dock for small cruises to depart from but instead they built this large beauty surrounded in bench seating and full of vendors walking around day and night. Perfect spot to sit and watch the sunset while eating ice cream from a vendor on this dock.
