Many hotels, so few crowds.  Puerto Vallarta's hotel zone beaches are surprisingly the least crowded and cleanest in all of Puerto Vallarta.  This area begins at the north end of the malecon (boardwalk) and includes Playas Camarones (Shrimp Beach), Las Glorias, Los Tules, and de Oro, equaling more than 3 miles of pure beach.  At only a few points, are there rock points where tide pools can be found at certain hours.  Be careful climbing on the rocks however, they can be quite slippery. 

The sand is soft, not course, and very light in color.  The waves are very gentle and the water is clear with about 10 to 20 feet of visibility.  Shells can be gathered early in the morning, and sea life is occasionally washed up on shore including oysters. 

The waves along these beaches are very small and gentle, so surfing and body boarding are not suggested for this area.  Fishing is not uncommon in this area, although it is not a favored location by the locals because of the neighboring hotels and frequent swimmers. 

If you wish to jog on the beach, this 3 mile stretch is the best!  It's rarely crowded and has long uninterrupted stretch without obstructing debris.
