Puerto Vallarta Sights

Lo de Marcos

  • Beach–Sight

Fodor's Review

About 8 km (5 mi) north of San Pancho, Lo de Marcos is a humble town of quiet, wide streets. It fills up on weekends and holidays with Mexican families renting the bungalow-style motel rooms that predominate; a few RV parks on the beach attract long-term snowbirds. The town's main beach is flat and dark, but the sand is generally clean. There are small waves, not big enough for surfing but just right for splashing around. A small restaurant on the beach serves sodas, snacks,

and the usual seafood suspects. Note that the once-popular playas Las Minitas and Los Venados are closed for private development. Facilities: Food concessions. Best for: walking; swimming.
