One of the most beautiful hideaways surrounding Puerto Vallarta is Playa Mismaloya.  A quaint lagoon is surrounded by a strip of sand where the Mismaloya stream calmly joins the ocean.  Just south of Hotel Mismaloya, the beach is softly sprinkled with palapa restaurants and offers the perfect place to sit, drink, dine and enjoy watching the local fisherman just off the shore.

The 1963 filming of "Night of the Iguana" is remembered here, where just a few hundred feet away, the remains of the original set and cast's quarters still reside.  Just North of the site, the Los Arcos sea rocks are often recognized easily, being a favorite Puerto Vallarta photograph location.  In the evening, the sunset can be seen through the center of the stones, with bright orange, pink, or even purple towns surrounding.

The Los Arcos sea rocks are also part of the federal underwater park and ecopreserve.  Los Arcos is considered one of the best snorkeling locations in all of Puerto Vallarta.  A glass-bottomed boat can be hired for transportation from the Mismaloya lagoon.

Fishing is another sport popular to Mismaloya.  Beach combing and sunbathing are exceptional due to the lack of crowds.

Restaurants in Mismaloya- these small establishments offer quaint, traditional fare that is both inexpensive and tasty.  Come hungry, and expect to leave full!

Restaurant Las Gaviotas is located across from the river and is known for an exceptional breakfast.  John Huston Cafe is famous for its view, as is Night of the Iguana Restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers beautiful photos from the making of the movie and a daily showing.

Nearby:  Chino's Paradise and Eden's Paradise.
