"Mismaloya" on the southern end of Puerto Vallarta means "a place where they grab fish with their hands", in the indigenous Nahuatl language.
This beach became famous all over the world because of the movie “The Night of the Iguana, “ directed by John Huston based on the work of Tennessee Williams. But even more so, by the torrid romance between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.
