Walk From Los Muertos to Conchas Chinas

After reading about a walk from Los Muertos to Conchas Chinas, I added it to my list of things to do on my next visit to Puerto Vallarta. Victor, our friend Michael and I packed some water, cameras, put on our swimuits and runners before heading down to Los Muertos beach.

Start the walk at the Boy and Seahorse Sculpture.

The walk starts at the south end of the playa, just past the famous seahorse sculpture. First, you climb some stairs up and over the rocks where another small sandy beach awaits you. The water has been quite rough lately and I would not recommend going among the rocky beach. Perhaps at times it is calmer, but not today.

The start of the path is a bit rough so make sure you have some sport sandals or shoes.

Continuing along we saw some grafitti, more sandy and rocky beaches until we reached a nice little road that continued along to Conchas Chinas. There are some beautiful villas, condos and private residences along this beach walk.

We stopped at one point to look at the tidal pools, seeing little fish and crabs caught until the next waves came to sweep them back to sea. The rocks are quite sharp so its best to have some sport sandals on while you do this.

Our final stop was a resort, which was either called La Playita or Lindo Mar Resort, I couldnt quite tell. Anyway, the view is wonderful and we had some ceviche, cerveza and guacamole, salsa and chips. Not the best food we have had but the company was good, as well as the entertainment of a fisherman throwing scraps if fish to the pelicans.

We decided to take the road back until we could detour off to a back street called Santa Barbera. The walk home took us about 30 minutes I would say, enough to get some cardio in and burn off the beer.
