Puerto Vallarta offers a lot of activities and beaches that you can enjoy during your stay, from partying at nightclubs, ecotourism, dining in good restaurants, sightseeing or just getting caught up in the adventure of the day.
One of the most popular attractions among visitors are the beaches, which have public access (the vast majority) so that everyone can enjoy them.
Among the best renowned beaches we can find los Muertos, de Oro, Los Camarones and Playa del Holi, where Friendly Vallarta Beach Resort & Spa is located, this is a certified clean beach, ensuring a safe experience for bathers. Thanks to the proximity with lots of convenience stores and supermarkets, these are among the most visited in the holiday period.
On the other hand, if you prefer something more out of town, the options point southwards, there you will find Conchas Chinas, Las Amapas, Punta Negra, Los Venados and Las Gemelas baches, just to mention some of the most popular in this area.
If you are looking for the adventure, then prepare yourself to departure early because to reach the following beaches your are going to make a long journey.
Continuing more to the south, you will arrive to Boca de Tomatlán beach, named after the river that leads into the ocean, giving a pretty natural postcard with different colors result of the junction of the river and the sea. To reach the following beaches from this point: Colomitos and Las Animas, you have two options, the first one is hiking along a path up the mountain, and the second one is to take a “water taxi” (boat). Ahead you will find Quimixto, a fishermen town with a pretty beach, very quiet and perfect for relaxing, away from everything to which you only can access by boat from the places mentioned above.
Finally, Majahuitas and Mayto, these beaches are the options for those who want something more intimate and looking for an experience with their significant other. You can arrive there on your own (by road or ocean). To close this tour we suggest Las Caletas beach, very popular lately, but to enjoy this beautiful place you will pay a tour that offers different activities in the expert’s hands.
