Not many places left that have a gay beach that is straight friendly and welcomes all types of bodies and personalities. The water is clean and on many days the surf is moderate enough for swimming. Lots of beach club/chairs/service offerings.

We visited this beach everyday during our two week stay. Mainly we stayed at the Mantamar Beach club loungers (it was free for us because we stayed at Almar - otherwise its a $500 peso charge, but $300 of it goes towards your drinks/food order)....More

Playa de Los Muertos is beach life in a city scape, numerous resorts along the beach and excellent restaurants where one can dine or just go for coffee.

Not too far from Zona beach ...it was lovely and relaxing. It was a shame that the tide was so fierce that we couldn’t swim in the pacific.

Enjoy people of all nationalities, colors, shapes; enjoy the display of eye-candy, especially in the predominantly gay sections.. Be prepared for lots of people. Los Muertos beach is full of life. But, beware, the beautiful ocean can have a powerful undertow. During our last visit,...More
