Mismaloya is an area located just outside of Puerto Vallarta to the South. It is most commonly known for its beach, which is a major tourist attraction for people looking to escape the sometime crowded beaches of Puerto Vallarta. The beach at Mismaloya is like a bay within the larger Bahia de Banderas.
Across the street from the beach is the Puerto Vallarta Zoo and Botanical Gardens. It is also home to many major resort hotels extending north into Conchas Chinas.
Getting to the beach is easy. Simply catch an orange and white TUM bus, or take a quick taxi ride. Bring a picnic to spend the day at the beach.
This is a great place for kayaking or paddle boarding. You can even reach Los Arcos islands from here.
