Playa Los Muertos Pier - Review

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

  • A beautiful pier that's a must see if you are visiting Puerto Vallarta. I would highly recommend going at sunset with all the boats in the water. There's always something interesting going on too, such as a bunch of guys diving off the pier into the water below. Such a good time!

  • This is another big attraction on the Malecon due to its multi color lights at night. From my understanding it is a form of lighthouse for the boats in the area. Besides some photo opportunities there really isn't anything else to see here. For safety reasons I don't suggest you give your phone to any locals you do not know as they can run off and you will not catch them.

  • Great place to welcome a new day, the sound of waves breaking. For those who love to run and feel a cool breeze always a plus. You can also catch a water taxi out to Las Animas or Yelapa or just jump in the ocean.

  • Los Muertos pier is a remarkable landmark but there is a great lack of maintenance, sadly. However in the evening or early in the morning, the lights are nice. Take on the pier a look over the sea to watch the pelicans, seagulls and other birds or in the water the fishes and perhaps a turtle.

  • An excellent beach with natural events. Lying alone at this beach, i've heard some noises but couldn't find the source. It took a while, then i saw "them". Little crabs were falling down the palms and hided in the sand. When you walk around you can find places with just a few people, or none. The Bay is protected from the big ocean waves and there are also many places where you can walk in the water and lay down, because the water level is just to the knees and no big waves hit you. I stayed at the Marsol Hotel, without a booking in advance i got a room at the same day i arrived in Puerto Vallarta. The hotel is located just next to the beach. One late afternoon i have seen a terrible accident at the beach. There are boats offering paragliding, where the boat is driving in the bay and you are paragliding fixed with a rope to the boat. The boat was too close to the beach and the paraglider crashed into a balcony at a facility at the beach. At the beginnig of my stay in Puerto Vallarta i was wondering about the raised sidewalks. But after a visit at a local bar, it started raining and the streets turned into rivers. This is due to the surrounding hills and when it rains all the water is flooding in from the hills into the city.
