Movie Making At Mismaloya, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Go down to the water and you’ll see the site of the movie The Night Of The Iguana. The Night Of The Iguana (1963) starring Richard Burton, Ava Gardner, Deborah Kerr, and Tennessee Williams was filmed in Mismaloya.
Go more inland toward the waterfall and you’ll see the site of the movie Predator (1987) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
We were laughing because we passed a couple talking to a vendor. The vendor was trying to sell them marijuana. The man replied ‘that’s my business.’ ‘We’re from California,’ the woman added. Like all people in California are in the drug business.
Getting To Mismaloya, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Getting to Mismaloya is fairly simple. You can take the bus from the city center (the buses are like mini-vans and will have Mismaloya written on the windshield). It will cost roughly 7 pesos per person each way and take 45 minutes. The buses have no shocks and the road is very bumpy so this is not recommended for anyone with a bad back (or loose fillings).
