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.
