Movies let us discover new places from the comfort of our own couch. You might already have a clue what this post is going to be about – and since I’m quite predictable you’ll probably be right: films!

‘The Night of the Iguana’ and ‘Predator’ made the beach of Mismaloya one of the most popular attractions of Puerto Vallarta.

 Before its popularity rise in the 80s, Mismaloya was just a small fisherman village. Being the location for Hollywood movies though, had an impact on its reputation – celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and Arnold Schwarzenegger were featured.

 Fine sand and crystal-clear water, make this beach located on the South of Vallarta, a true paradise. Being next to the Marine Reserve of Los Arcos, it’s perfect for practicing snorkel or even scuba diving.

The nearby tropical forest, is visible from the sea, and it’s home to a number of species, including armadillos, jaguars, pumas, deers and stags.

It is definitely a place worth visiting, as well as my chosen accommodation, the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa.
