4 Greatest Beaches for Families Visiting Puerto Vallarta



Puerto Vallarta is the perfect location for a family vacation. In addition to the gorgeous weather, this vibrant city in the western state of Jalisco, Mexico, also boasts a rich cultural atmosphere and amazing beaches. Here are four of the greatest beaches to consider visiting with your family while in Puerto Vallarta.

Los Muertos Beach

Located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta near the Rio Cuale Bridge and the popular pier, Los Muertos Beach is a must-see destination when visiting this tropical paradise. This lively beach is a good choice if you want to immerse yourself in the culture of Puerto Vallarta. A variety of restaurants and bars dot the landscape of this beach, giving families plenty of options when hunger strikes. After a day at the beach, you can easily walk to the downtown area and check out the action there.

Costa Sur Beach

Located in the south part of Puerto Vallarta, this idyllic beach is home to a wide array of sea life, making it a great place to snorkel. You can expect to see starfish, rays, coral and colorful fish. A large rock barrier protects the sand on the beach while creating a lagoon with calm waters. Due to these mild swimming conditions, Costa Sur is an especially great choice when traveling with young children.

Sayulita Beach

One of the world’s best beaches is located just outside of Puerto Vallarta in a town called Sayulita. The iconic beach is adjacent to the center of the town, making it a one-stop-shop for all of your vacation needs. A myriad of available water activities makes it easy to get active. Or you can choose to simply relax and relish in the beauty of this legendary beach.

Conchas Chinas Beach

Deep turquoise waters, glistening white sand, and unique rock formations are the distinguishing features of this stunning beach. Since there is little parking available nearby, it is a good idea to use public transportation to get to Conchas Chinas. A bevy of public access points allows you to set up shop for the day. Services are limited, so be sure to bring food and drink for your visit.

Vacation is a fun time to relax and connect with your family and friends. No matter what beach you choose, you are sure to have a lovely time soaking up the sun and playing in the sand and the surf of Puerto Vallarta. This quintessential beach vacation destination is sure to please people of all ages.
