Puerto Vallarta and its wonderful beaches welcome visitors. Come, discover Playa Palmares, a beautiful beach south of Puerto Vallarta and be prepared to enjoy a splendid day with a taste of Puerto Vallarta.
Playa Palmares is located 7.5 kilometers or 4.6 miles from the center of Puerto Vallarta. It can be reached by land on the Mismaloya Road, either on a taxicab or the city buses covering the Mismaloya-Boca de Tomatlan route. It takes about 17 minutes to get there, and the ride is a scenic one, since the road runs parallel to the ocean shore and affords views of both the sea and the mountains.
Playa Palmares is Blue Flag certified, which is a guarantee of cleanliness, safety, quality of water and accessibility. The beach enjoys a parking lot and pedestrian access, even a ramp for persons with disabilities. There are also restrooms and showers, thus providing greater comfort to visitors.
At Palmares Beach, besides admiring the beauty of the ocean and the mountain, you can enjoy the sun, the sand and the sea for resting, working on your suntan, swimming, and fishing from the shore or playing on the sand. There are also speed boats coming near the shore to offer the popular banana ride. The beach is an inviting place for living together with family and friends.
Additionally you will most likely encounter a vendor of the traditional, delicious fish-on-a-stick, to your taste buds’ delight.
When visiting Playa Palmares, remember to bring along a good sun block lotion, an umbrella, sunglasses, a beach towel, sandals and an ice chest with your favorite beverages and bottled water to stay cool and hydrated. You will get a real feel of what Puerto Vallarta has to offer to visitors.
