BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Playa de los Muertos or "Deadmen's Beach" is named for the pirate raids that left bodies strewn across shore more than a century ago.
  • A host of restaurants and shops are available, or visitors can parasail, sun, and take funky banana boat rides on the water.
  • Nighttime brings out the local music lovers—funky jazz clubs line the beach.
The story of Playa de los Muertos is a grim one. A battle fought here more than 100 years ago between precious metal smugglers and natives came to its gruesome end on the beach.

Located past Villa Amor and the town cemetery
