About these ratings

The most popular shoreline in Puerto Vallarta, Playa los Muertos (Dead Man's Beach) in the Zona Romantica, offers opportunities to jet ski and windsurf, and an assortment of excellent restaurants and bars. Try out some of the land sports as well, such as beach volleyball, which can be equally fun but cheaper than the water sports. 

Travelers generally say that Playa Los Muertos is a nice beach area with plenty of space and a great spot for people-watching, though some note it lacks the distinctive crystal blue color that marks the Caribbean on Mexico's east side. Visitors also note that, unlike elsewhere in the Zona Romantica, beachside peddlers can be particularly aggressive in selling small items to tourists. A simple "no, gracias" should allow you to avoid any haggling.

Playa Los Muertos is also home to PV's most popular gay beach — Blue Chair.
