Majahuitas is a beautiful little beach in Cabo Corrientes south of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. It has beautiful waters and clear golden sands, bordered by palm trees and the green jungle of the region. It’s what one would consider the perfect beach when imagining a place to go relax in the sun, enjoy the sand and the warm and clean waters of the Bay of Banderas. If you are looking for one of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta, although it is in the next municipality, it is really worth considering it.
What’s attractive and why go
It is a very quiet beach, free from the hustle and bustle of the beaches near downtown Puerto Vallarta, there are no vendors, no music rumbling in the bars or restaurants, no crowds of people and the noise that entails. Here, the noisiest things are the green-emerald waves that break gently on the clear, golden sands of the beach. The wind rocks the palm trees and shakes the fronds, that could be considered another constant “noise” in this sub-tropical beach 🙂 So if you are a little bit anti-crowds, this is the place for you.

How to get to Majahuitas Jalisco
It can only be reached by sea, as we mentioned the road continues to the south past Boca de Tomatlan, but no longer edges along the bay and these beaches of Cabo Corrientes are isolated and, therefore, more virgin, clean and quiet too. We recommend you first travel to to Boca by taxi, Uber or one of the many local buses that travel to Mismaloya or Boca itself, also the buses that travel to El Tuito, which is farther south, will do. It’s about 20 minutes fromPuerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone. Once in Boca, walk to the village boardwalk (malecon) on the banks of the Horcones River and negotiate a trip with the local water taxis (pangas). If there is any extra waiting time, you can have a beer or juice by the sea enjoying the beautiful beach and the small protected bay. The rest of the trip you will do by sea, traveling along the edge of the jungle and the beaches by sea, you go by Colomitos, Las Animas Beach, Las Caletas, and Quimixto before you reach Majahuitas Beach, Cabo Corrientes. Vallarta Adventures, the largest tour operator in the area, offers tours to the site and has facilities there at Majahuitas, if you want to spend a more pleasant time, with service, drinks, activities and bathroom, it may be a good option to go with them.

What to do there
At Playa Majahuitas Beach Jalisco, there are few options and we recommend that you bring your own snorkeling equipment to enjoy one of the main attractions of the place, at both ends there are rocky outcrops that house fish and various marine species that you will enjoy observing. The sea invites you to swim and splash around and is very pleasant. The sand is a little coarse, so it is not advisable to let yourself be dragged by the water, some rubber shoes will help walk along the shore in a more pleasant way. The light color of the sand helps it not get too hot, which is good when it comes to walking and sunbathing. The obvious options are also to relax and sunbathe, but bring food and drink because there are no services on the spot. Also, do not plan to spend all day in the place because I did not see public toilets, I suppose Vallarta Adventures would lend you its own, but I have not consulted, be advised.
Is there where to stay in Playa Majahuitas Mexico?
Until February 2018, the obvious place was Majahuitas Resort Cabo Corrientes, right on the northern side of the beach and the hill, but the Chacala indigenous community did not renew the concession and now there is nowhere to stay in Playa Majahuitas, that I know of at least. Vallarta Adventures does not offer accommodation or camping of any kind in the place, for the time being. So the closest thing would be something in Yelapa.
