Puerto Vallarta: Home to Some of Mexico’s Cleanest Beaches

Have you ever heard of the Blue Flag Certification? It is one of the world’s most widely recognized eco-awards. Only beaches, marinas and sustainable boat tour operators that meet and maintain a specific set of criteria are awarded this label.

Here in Puerto Vallarta, we are proud to be home to 7 different beaches that were awarded the Blue Flag certification in 2018.

Not only that, but we’re also home to 10 of the cleanest beaches in the entire country:

  • Camarones (Blue Flag Award)
  • Cuale
  • Gemelas
  • Las Animas
  • Los Muertos
  • Mismaloya
  • Oasis
  • Palmares
  • Quimixto
  • Yelapa

Here in Puerto Vallarta, cleanliness and environmental awareness is a major factor in day to day life. Many of our beach clubs and bars are choosing to reduce their plastic waste by eliminating the use of plastic straws or Styrofoam cups, and beach clean ups are a popular weekend activity for many of the year-round locals.

Not only does this mean we live in harmony with our environment, but it makes Puerto Vallarta a top beach destination. Visiting Puerto Vallarta and booking a stay at a private luxury villa or vacation rental right on the beach is a dream come true for many vacationers. Many of our luxury properties are located on or near other Blue Flag awarded beaches on the Southern shores of the city.
