“Muertos Pier a Beacon for the Future”
Review of Los Muertos Pier

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The pier was inaugurated in 2013 as part of the revival of the city. Financed by the federal government it was designed by a famous architect in the form of a sail with lights that cast a welcome glow. About 200 feet long the walkway is of cement for a smooth walk and roundabout around the sail. The end of the pier has many uses - water taxis departures, fishing, day tours begin here to go to other beaches like Yelapa, Mismaloya, or around the bay. Even though there are signs for no jumping young boys were doing just that and having a joyous time.When we were there the beach was very crowded with every age group enjoying the surf and water. Located at the southern end of the new Malecon on Muertos beach. There have been two previous piers. One in the 1950s or early 1960s when cruise ships would anchor. In 1963 John Huston used to load construction materials and equipment to go to Mismaloya to build the set and then film Night of the Iguanas. As there were no roads then the crew and cast also departed and arrived via the pier. There was a second pier in 1990 which I know nothing about. At night you can see the lighted sail for many miles. It's an awesome place to watch the sunset, have dinner or a drink nearby, take a swim or just settle for a stroll. Sun, sand, or a stroll but if you are fair skinned, watch out for the sunburn.

The Malecon and Pier area is a great place to people watch! Lots of local flavor and action. Busier at night but fun all day long! We usually have dinner at a local restaurant on one of the back streets and then walk the Malecon to the Pier.

At first it seemed to much for the pier to look like this ..but then after seeing and wailing on it , its like being in a magic place on the middle o the edge of the bay in Puerto Vallarta there is always people on the boardwalk at la times. You have to walk on it to know ..

The Pier in downtown Puerto Vallarta had a very interesting design and many people walking out on it and around the shoreline.

Part of zona romantica. It is always busy and a lovely walk any evening. You can start at the Malencón and walk South along the water front, you will pass a lovely bridge and this Pier is a super nice way to end, you can continue to restaurants or a bar anywhere,there are tons of places to choose from
