Los Muertos Pier: A Puerto Vallarta Symbol
Designed by architect José de Jesús Torres Vega, the current Los Muertos Pier was inaugurated in 2013 as part of a Puerto Vallarta restructuring program.
The pier extends 337 feet out to the sea and is shaped like a spiral, resembling a sail wrapped in the wind, blowing through the air.
In addition to its aesthetics, it is a docking point for pangas that offer trips to the beaches located on the Banderas Bay’s South Shore.
This beautiful structure, located in the heart of Los Muertos Beach, offers a beautiful walkaway that allows its visitors to enjoy the spectacular sunsets that converge on our destination.
There have been two versions prior to the current dock: the first was used for old luxury ships to disembark visitors and it was also used to transport the recording equipment for the film “The Night of the Iguana” (1964). The second version was called “Muelle de la Solidaridad Vallartense”, which was completed in December 1990 with the help of residents, local businessmen and government officials.
Today, the pier has become a Puerto Vallarta symbol, as well as an important attraction on Francisca Rodríguez Street and its surroundings.
