Our beloved Los Muertos Pier itself is a beautiful curved structure featuring a large walkway for the public to enjoy impressive panoramic views of Banderas Bay. Most recently, CNN has highlighted the city ́s newest gem as one of the 9 most beautiful Piers in the world.

Once a simple dock utilized to transport the crew of the cult classic “The Night of the Iguana” (US, 1964), cult classic directed by John Huston and starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, the film is largely credited for placing Puerto Vallarta as a tourist destination in the world ́s eye.

The new Pier designed by architect Jose de Jesus Torres Vega re-opened in 2013 as part of the city ́s renovation program; it stretches out to 328 meters long. Besides aesthetic appeal featuring a large spiral resembling a sail wrapped in the wind, the Los Muertos Pier serves a very practical function for visitors and residents as a docking point for boats and tours leading to south shore beaches such as Yelapa, Majahuitas and Las Animas.

The pier also provides an economic boost to the Olas Altas and Los Muertos beach areas, already popular with tourists and locals due to its large array of restaurants, bars, beach clubs and water sports.

So get your cameras ready and pay a visit to the new Los Muertos Pier for one of the most beautiful views and photo ops in Puerto Vallarta.
