Los Muertos Beach (Playa Los Muertos)
For an authentic and lively Puerto Vallarta beach experience, Los Muertos Beach (Playa Los Muertos) can’t be beat. Located just south of Olas Altas Beach in the Romantic Zone, this gay-friendly stretch of sand fronts a pier and is lined with bars and restaurants. Locals and families also love this beach and its diverse crowd.

The Basics
Playa Los Muertos is the Romantic Zone’s top attraction and crowded compared to the rest of Puerto Vallarta’s beaches. The water can be good for swimming, and out of the water the ambiance and people watching will keep you entertained. Come evening, the beachfront restaurants serve gourmet cuisine against the backdrop of romantic Vallarta sunsets.

You can visit the Beach of the Dead, as it's also known, independently or as part of a beach-hopping tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The beach is ideal for all beachgoers. Families may prefer to be near the pier, where swimming can be better for children.
  • Remember to bring sun protection and plenty of water, as the beach offers little shade.
  • Beach chairs and umbrellas are available to rent.

How to Get There
Playa Los Muertos is located in the south of Puerto Vallarta, across the bridge over the Cuale River from the north side. Take the bus that says Centro (downtown) or a taxi; if you’re driving, follow Highway 200.

When to Get There
As with all of Puerto Vallarta, the beach is lovely pretty much year-round. Winter sees large numbers of visitors; during this time, plan to arrive early in the morning to beat the crowds and take advantage of the beach’s limited street parking.

Romantic Zone Highlights
No visit to Playa Los Muertos is complete without a stroll along the winding cobblestone streets of Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone (Old Town). With artisan shops, farmers markets, and street-side taco stands, this area of Vallarta maintains a more traditional, laid-back feel than the rest of the city. Don’t miss a walk along the newly reconstructed pier.
Address: El Centro, Puerto Vallarta 48300, Mexico

After meeting at our location, (listed below) we will have a long exposure demonstration in which you will photograph the traffic of the Romantic Zone to capture motion trails of headlights.

Depending on the date of the workshop you will then either participate in shooting the moon and moonlight photography, or star trails during a new moon. We will discuss both techniques regardless of which we practice. Lastly we will create some images using the technique ‘painting with light,’ in which we will use flash lights to paint and draw onto our images. If available we can shoot the fire dancers at the Blue Shrimp restaurant.
