There is no location in Puerto Vallarta that comes close to Playas Gemelas. It is the most secluded and clean of all the beach areas. The owner is a long-time environmentalist who is concerned about the cleanliness of the ocean and beaches, and actively works to that end. Her 11th floor location not only has a stunning view, but is protected from road noise by it's location in the center of the tower. All pools are kept sparkling, the grounds are a tropical park, security is absolute. Daily lunches at the neighboring palapa restaurant are a treat.
We find the local bus to town fun and convenient, and if our return from a Puerto Vallarta restaurant (many international choices) is late, taxis are inexpensive and readily available. Galleries are varied and interesting for those who find they enjoy contemporary Mexican artists.

Owner's Response: I agree that there is no better beach and spectacular view than Playas Gemelas Beach. All the locals have always felt that this beach is the best in PV. Also, it is centrally located on the bus route to a 10 min. ride to Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
The Palapa Restaurant on the beach has outstanding fish dishes, spectacular ambiance, and reasonble prices as $10.00 a dinner.
