Chances are, if you have been to Puerto Vallarta, you will have heard of the movie Night Of The Iguana, starring Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr, and Richard Burton. The film, set in 1964 in the small and relatively unknown beach town of Mismaloya, nine miles south of Puerto Vallarta, began a tourist love affair that continues to this day.
In the resulting years, there have been many changes. Hotels, luxury villas, and a sprinkling of condominiums have sprung up, with restaurants and tour operators serving locals and visitors alike. One thing that has not changed is the stunning location encased within a jungle backdrop that wraps a lush-green blanket around one of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches.
Offshore lies the treasured Los Arcos National Park, where marine enthusiasts enjoy the flourishing and untouched ecosystem.
Away from the beach and the ocean, El Eden is an exotic jungle attraction with waterfalls and river pools, ideal for swimming or cooling off from the heat of the day. El Eden continues Mismaloya’s movie pedigree as the location of the hit movie Predator was partially filmed here.
A short drive to the south of Mismaloya is the award-winning Vallarta Botanical Gardens, listed in USA Today‘s 2021 10 Best list of public gardens and arboretums in North America.
The breathtaking location and world-class attractions make Mismaloya a perfect destination to live year-round, part-time, or while on vacation.
