This little sandy beach is situated in the small fishing village of Boca de Tomatlan, which is about 10 miles south of downtown Puerto Vallarta. We visited here by boat as we were en route to Vallarta Adventures outdoor activities tour. After our tour we...More

What a great place to check out. Beautiful beach and the locals are great but if you want to use the banos it’s $5.

If you enjoy a difficult hike, this one takes about 21/2 hours. It begins easily following the Boca malecon to the river and crossing over to the south side of the bay. The path along the bay passes local residents' homes, which is interesting and...More

Enjoyed our afternoon here. Had a great lunch on the beach; food & drinks were very reasonable. Lots of boats in the water but part of the beach is good for swimming. Will definitely go again.

Friendly dogs in play, people from all over enjoying the tranquility. The sea very calm. Very peaceful to watch the fisherman prepare their nets for an evening of fishing. The beach food is quite good, salsa one of the best.

We took the bus from Bus terminal #5 (the orange buses to Mismaloya) and rode right up to the end of the line. When you get off the bus, you walk down a bunch of steps to the water front. At the bottom of the...More

A bit of confusion w how the water taxis work. Don't lose ticket. Ask Questions. Make sure you're clear on what island to stop and when returning you know what taxi to take back.

This is a quiet tranquil beach with tables and low key wait staff. Prices are very reasonable and good service. You can catch water taxis directly from the beach to get to Yelapa and other destinations. Food drink and excursions. I don’t know that I...More

You will find street parking down the hill off of the main road. Towards the pier. Super easy and cheap to take the bus, however. And you never wait long - there are many that run that route.
