Mismaloya is guilty of Puerto Vallarta’s success, as this is the place where everything started half a century ago when John Huston chose it as “The Night of the Iguana” location starring Ava Gardner and Richard Burton. The primeval beauty that enamored Huston is still there. However, now Mismaloya has become a hotspot for luxury villas and is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in all Puerto Vallarta. One of the main assets of Mismaloya is its secluded location. If you are looking for a property near where all the action occurs, Mismaloya is not for you. If you are looking for a piece of paradise in a spectacular natural environment where privacy is one of the most prized aspects of the community, then you should allow Mismaloya to seduce you just as it has done with so many people for all these years.
Homes in Mismaloya almost for sure feature breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, including some to Los Arcos National Marine Park, one of the best diving spots in the whole Banderas Bay. In the background, you will always enjoy the lush vegetation of the Sierra Madre mountains. Mismaloya is a typical Mexican sleepy fishing village, as there only survives a big resort taking most of the cove’s beach area, some quaint restaurants, and a few scattered houses.
Today, most of what Mismaloya is formed by the exclusive villas and luxurious condos overlooking the picturesque town and the sea beyond. Definitely, one of the very best neighborhoods in Puerto Vallarta, even though it’s not actually in town but a few miles South. A place that still manages to keep that sense of paradise-like retreat without sacrificing comfort and luxury.
