Melaque is located approximately 135 miles south of Puerto Vallarta and is part of the Pacific coastline that is known as “Costa Alegre”, the “Happy Coast”.
Melaque is joined by two other villages, San Patricio and Villa Obregon to form a town of approximately 12,000 residents. That number increases substantially with snowbirds from Canada and the U.S. Melaque is also a popular beach destination for visitors from Guadalajara, Mexico City and other inland towns.
Melaque shares a beach with its neighbour Barra de Navidad. November through to April, there is little or no rain and the temperatures during that time range from an average of 18 Celsius at night to 30 during the day.
