Las Animas, a quiet, tiny beach inaccessible except by boat where sunbathers can relax in colorful beach chairs and choose from several rustic restaurants for Mexican fare. Snorkeling is popular in the gentle surf of this cozy beach.

A favorite with locals who arrive on their own boats, this secluded very pretty beach actually consists of two sandy stretches each about a mile long, separated by rocks. One has half a dozen palapa restaurants and a dock, while the other is still pretty much the way God made it. The water is exceptionally clear and shallow, the gentle wave action conducive to swimming, kayaking and snorkeling. Water taxis or pangas leaving from Los Muertos pier or Boca de Tomatlan, south of Puerto Vallarta, schedule regular trips during the day.

Yelapa Beach – Nestled in the southernmost cove of the worlds 7th largest bay, lies the peaceful village of Yelapa, Jalisco, Mexico. Although there is a road which leads to the pueblo, it is most easily accessible by boat. Transportation to the village departs daily from various locations in the Puerto Vallarta area. Yelapa’s tranquillity is ideal for those looking to stay, for that entirely laid-back vacation. The beach is covered in a blanket of golden sand, and is a superb place to swim, snorkel, or parasail. If you are not that energetic you can just relax in one of the numerous beach chairs, soak up the sun, and enjoy a cold drink.

Not far from downtown Puerto Vallarta, 11 miles (17km and 15-20 minutes), you can visit a nice little traditional fishing village, Boca de Tomatlan (or just Boca, among the locals). You can get there by land or sea, there are local buses that go there too.

It’s on the way to the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, just past 3 miles past Mismaloya, and it is the most popular landing and departure bay for the water taxis that take you to the isolated and beautiful beaches of the south part of the Banderas Bay, including Las Ánimas, Quimixto, Majahuitas and Yelapa.
