Los Muertos is a beautiful beach for all to enjoy. The southern end is comprised of mostly LGBT adults. There are many hotels with excellent drinks offerings, as well as many great dining spots. The vendors are there in numbers, but a polite "No Gracias"...More

We frequented this beach daily during our 10 day holiday in April. It is a lively beach, perfect for people watching and enjoying the brilliant sun and gorgeous ocean. I'm looking forward to going back soon. Best beach in PV!

This is a fairly easy walk to the beach or anywhere else in the Zona Romantica, but the trip back up the hill can be challenging, especially after a day at the beach. We found that it kept us in shape. There is a short... More

Well, the sea is remarkably able to cleanse itself, and I've never heard of any of the beaches on the Bay of Banderas being "dangerously" contaminated. Nevertheless, as a matter of preferences when it comes to PV beaches, I... More
