Located at the southernmost point of the south of Puerto Vallarta, Mismaloya is at the foot of the mountains and offers a beautiful blue-green bay for your day trip. If you want some of the best views the area has to offer, plus beautiful attractions along the way, luxurious hotels, great restaurants and terraces over the beach take a slower trip down the coast to Mismaloya.
The beach itself is very famous for having been the one chosen by John Huston to film Tennessee Williams' "The Night of the Iguana" in 1962-63. The ruins of the movie set remain at the far end to the South on the hill. In the rainy season, the beautiful river that feeds the bay swells up, offering a wide variety of flowers, fauna and colorful birds for the visiting bird watchers.
Public access to Mismaloya via this street beside the Barceló hotel.
