Conoce la bella Playa de Mismaloya en la Zona Sur de Puerto Vallarta, Ja…

Mismaloya https://www.puertovallarta.net/espanol/que-hacer/mismaloya es un pueblo pequeño, más conocido por su playa, 20 minutos al sur de Puerto Vallarta, atravesada por Carretera 200 que va hacia el sur con destino Costa Careyes. Ésta pasa entre el pueblo y la playa, a un lado del Barceló, resort que antes se llamaba “La Jolla de Mismaloya”.

El nombre es de origen Nahuatl (michmaloyan) que significa “lugar donde puedes agarrar peces con tus manos”, ya no es necesariamente el caso, pero se nota claramente por qué es un lugar atractivo y bello. Entre la jungla, de y los cerros, atraviesa un pequeño riachuelo, el mismo que pasa por El Edén río arriba, que desemboca en la pequeña bahía que hospeda esta pequeña, pero importante, playa.

En el pueblo mismo cruzando la carretera al lado contrario del Barceló está la entrada, hacia el interior encontrarás algunas opciones de actividades y visitas bastante recomendables, de hecho algunas están entre las mejores cosas que hacer en Puerto Vallarta durante tu visita.

En la playa tienes opción de nadar, asolearte, pasear por la playa y realizar varias actividades. Hay, por ejemplo, varios restaurantes que ofrecen buena comida del mar, pescado y mariscos, hay varios puestos de masaje que te ayudarán a desestresarte, está Paddle zone que ofrece stand-up paddles, tablas para que remes en la bahía y tours que te llevan a Los Arcos a ver la naturaleza.

La Playa de Mismaloya Puerto Vallarta, es una playa que además tiene mucha historia, en los años 60’s sólo se podía llegar por mar, algo así como Las Ánimas o Yelapa en la actualidad. En ésa época el famoso director de cine John Huston decidió que el cerro que delimita la playa por el sur y la playa misma serían parte del set de la película “La Noche de la Iguana”.

Más información, mapas, datos y fotos de lo que algunos consideran la mejor playa de Puerto Vallarta, Mismaloya, en: https://www.puertovallarta.net/espanol/que-hacer/mismaloya

ENGLISH

Mismaloya Jalisco https://www.puertovallarta.net/what_to_do/mismaloya is a small town, best known for its beach, located 20 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta, along the road that goes south to Costa Careyes (Highway 200 / Carretera 200) that runs between the town and the beach, next to Barceló Resort that used to be called “La Jolla de Mismaloya.”

To go into the village itself, across the road opposite the Barceló you’ll find the entrance, there you will find some options for activities and visits that are highly recommended, in fact, some are among the best things to do in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

On the beach you have the option of swimming, sunbathing, strolling along the beach and enjoying various activities. There are, for example, several restaurants that offer good seafood and fish dishes, they also share their beach chairs and parasols if you eat and drink with them. There are several massage spots that will help you de-stress. Paddle Zone is a tour operator that offers stand-up paddle rentals (SUP), boards and paddles you can use in the bay, and a tour where they take you to visit Los Arcos, natural rock islands you can see from the beach, to see the fish and other impressive natural attractions.

Mismaloya Mexico, one of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta, is very nice with soft waves, very clean green-emerald waters, and golden sands of intermediate grain, not very soft, but not as rough as what you find in Yelapa. You will find yourself cleaning your swimsuit from time to time, though.

There are a considerable number of boats that are in the hands of local fishermen, some of them offer tours and transfers to the various attractions of the Banderas Bay, including Los Arcos de Mismaloya, Boca de Tomatlan, Colomitos Beach, Las Animas beach, Quimixto, Majahuitas beach, Yelapa and other beautiful locations to the south of the bay.

Mismaloya Beach, Puerto Vallarta, is also one that has a lot of history, in the 60’s it could only be reached by sea, something like Las Ánimas or Yelapa nowadays. At that time, the famous film director, John Huston, decided that the hill that delimits the beach to the south and the beach itself would be part of the set for the film “The Night of the Iguana”, he brought great movie personalities to Puerto Vallarta.

PUERTO VALLARTA MEXICO why I wouldn't go back

Puerto Vallarta in the rainy season is not safe, daily flooding and aging buildings pose a risk to personal safety I was lucky to escape hurricane Nora before it touched down causing severe damage to the town, in this video we take a tour of my airbnb from hell in Puerto Vallarta, we will also walk the streets of zona romantica in the old town which happens to be the gay friendly zone ?
