Pilitas

Seahorse Statue

Las Pilitas (Baptismal Font) is a sea-level rock formation on the South end of Old Vallarta's Los Muertos Beach, close to the base of El Pulpito. This was where the "El Caballito de Mar" sculpture (The Seahorse) was originally located. After disappearing in a storm, a bigger replica was made by the artist and placed on the Malecon. The original statue was recovered and now stands there at Las Pilitas, too. A side street on Olas Altas (Old Vallarta) is named after this natural landmark.
