'Your unit is the nicest that we have stayed in since coming to La Palapa.'

'Your place is absolutely wonderful. We're having the best vacation ever.'

Your perfect beach vacation starts here at La Palapa Condo on Los Muertos beach! Our two-bedroom/two-bath Puerto Vallarta condo features a great ocean view, a spacious deck, and a beautifully maintained and customized interior, as well as a great location and floorplan. Not to mention the best beach in the charming Old Town area, south of the Rio Cuale in the Zona Romantica, Puerto Vallarta.

This fifth-floor condo offers 1,300 square feet of living space. Special features include a large plant-filled deck with doors to the master bedroom and living area. The master bedroom comes with a king-size bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds which can be combined to make a king, if desired. The living and dining area opens onto a large tiled deck with a lovely ocean and mountain view.

Watch the sun set over the ocean, and get a sweeping view of the village, jungle, beach, and mountains. The fifth-floor location of this home is ideally situated to appreciate all the natural beauty.

CONDO AMENITIES include free WiFi wireless connection, cable TV, DVD/VCR, a CD/cassette player, air conditioning, ceiling fans, telephone, games, puzzles, and books and videos. Daily maid service Mon-Sat is provided. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, stove, microwave, pots and pans, glassware, and the all-important blender and coffeemaker for festive evenings and convenient and cozy breakfasts on the terrace. There are two full marble-tiled bathrooms -- one with a soaker tub/shower, and one with a shower. All towels supplied, including beach towels.

BUILDING AMENITIES include an elevator, a reception desk and 24-hour security. The rooftop deck at La Palapa offers a large rooftop pool (heated in winter), shaded areas, and lounge chairs, plus a sun deck terrace with tremendous views of the entire Banderas Bay and Sierra Madre mountains.

If you prefer to dig your toes in the sand, relax under a palapa on the beach. There is a palapa-roofed beachfront restaurant which has been one of Puerto Vallarta's favorites for over thirty years.

The beachfront location of La Palapa makes it a perfect spot to enjoy the pleasure of the beaches at Puerto Vallarta including jet-skiing, para-sailing, swimming in the ocean, and just sitting under an umbrella in one of the plentiful beach chairs while enjoying a delicious tropical drink.

The condo is in the middle of town life. The Los Muertos Beach area is filled with Mexicans, expats, tourists, schools, hotels, great restaurants and bars, bookstores, supermarkets, nightclubs, condominiums, banks, cigar stores, parks, bakeries, homes, and the most popular beach in Puerto Vallarta. Enjoy a wonderful blend of old and new. The flavor is international, with the Mexican, relaxed pace and enjoyment of life. Absolutely everything is located within an easy walk.

La Palapa is centrally located in the historic 'Zona Romantica' -- just a short walk from the plaza Olas Altas where you can pick up a bus to any part of Puerto Vallarta for 6.5 pesos (about 50 cents US). Of course, taxis abound everywhere, and a taxi ride to the marina or hotel zone will run about 70 pesos (about $6.00 US).

About Katy Malm

Paul & Katy Malm- We are long-time business owners. Married with 3 adult children, now grandparents. We enjoy music, sunshine and gathering with friends

Why Katy Malm chose Amapas

We have been enjoying visits to Puerto Vallarta for over 30 years! What a great town, lovely people, beautiful vistas and perfect weather. Being based in Seattle, we so appreciate the dependable blue sky days of the dry high season in PV! We are delighted to own this lovely spacious condo in a perfectly located building. La Palapa was first the famous restaurant, then the condos were built above it. This is the best beach area in town, and the best rooftop terrace as well. We hope to host you soon for your own special sunbreak!

What makes this condo unique

The BEACH!!! Taking in the fabulous restaurants all within a short walk. Once you're here you hardly need to go anywhere else....

Teenage boy and 21 year old daughter had a great experience too. We would love to go back to Puerto Vallarta and wouldn’t want to stay anyplace else.

Heavenly Balcony!

  • 5 of 5

First time renting this particular condo in PV. Excellent location and while not facing the beach directly as the unit is on the side of the building (as the picture shows), it is actually more ideal than a full frontal beach view as the balcony was shaded from the extreme sunlight at all times. Never used the A/C in the main living area and only used A/C at night which was a lovely quiet unit in the master. Comfortable living area (sofa's that were very comfortable to sit on and one that was great for taking a nap), nice dining area and kitchen well equipped with appliances. (only complaint was the lack of serving dishes and small little bowls for salsa's and dips). Great building - 24/7 security and fabulous roof top pool. Thoroughly enjoyed staying at this unit! Wonderful staff - very helpful and terrific, responsive owners.
