The beach in Boca de Tomatlan is a natural and protected area. The water is crystal clear and the facilities are convenient. There are Panga rentals there to get a ride to any of the outlying beaches like Las Animas Colimitos, or even Mayto. Panga...More

the beach is at very close proximity to the village. The locals are friendly and you can choose from a great variety of typical restaurant on the waterfront...it's a hidden paradise.

Since the bus ride only cost 8 pesos, it was more than worth the trip. We arrived before noon and had our choice of where to spend the day. There were at least 3 different restaurants with chairs, tables and umbrellas on the beach. I...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.

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.
