Life and surroundings of the Conchas Chinas neighborhood

This marvelous place named Conchas Chinas, refers to a type of seashell found only on the area’s sandy coves. It’s a residential-only area and it’s known as the Beverly Hills of Puerto Vallarta by almost everyone. This place is a picture-postcard upmarket neighborhood located in the coastal resort of Puerto Vallarta, one of Mexico’s most popular holiday destinations. Built on rocky cliffs covered in tropical rainforest vegetation, home to birds of paradise and diverse plant life, with amazing views of the bay and the old town and its own beach, the location of Conchas Chinas is one of the best in the entire Banderas bay.

Playa Conchas Chinas has remarkable crystal-clear water and many, exclusive hidden coves, created by the rocky coastline, that seem to have been painted by a goddess. This beach is quieter than its neighbor, Playa los Muertos, the most popular beach in Puerto Vallarta. As tourists flock to “Playa los Muertos”, you are free to enjoy the solitude of Playa Conchas Chinas.
