Gateway to the southern beaches of beautiful Banderas Bay
Boca de Tomatlan
Boca de Tomatlan is an authentic Mexican fishing village, 20 mins. south  from downtown Vallarta. It's privileged location offers 3 of natures true gems: a mountainside, a river and an ocean. Boca's beach is long and pearly colored, with a powdery texture that makes you want to sink your feet in it;  and surely the calmest waters anywhere in Vallarta. Every morning, with the sunrise, you get to enjoy the show displayed by fisherman arriving... nets filled with the seasonal catch, be it Mahi Mahi, grouper, tuna or lobster. This wonderful cove is home to many birds, among them the Military Green Macaws, wild parrots, boobie birds, pelicans ,etc; of which there are high probabilities of being able to admire upclose .
It is also here where you catch the watertaxi's to  Las Animas, Quimixto, Majahuitas, and Yelapa (beaches only accessible by sea), since Boca de Tomatlan is the highways last stop on the coastline. If you decide to continue south on the highway, you would soon see the exuberant jungle transform into a forest with pine trees and clay colored land, and arrive at El Tuito, a mexican pueblo inland. 

Boca de Tomatlan is quaint little village, with charming residents that will certainly make you feel at home. The perfect spot to find the peace and tranquility, away from traffic and stress. You'll find here the sweet pleasure of paradise, with the comfortable proximity to civilization. And better yet... Boca de Tomatlan is still one of Vallarta's a best  kept secrets!   

On Boca de Tomatlan's beach, you will find many typical palapa restaurants, specializing on seafood.  The all time favorite dish: Pescado Sarandeado (specially seasoned fish). Most of these restaurants are run by it's owner and family, giving you the feel of good homemade meals. And allow me to mention that you will find here the freshest fish anywhere, straight out of the fisherman's nets.

There are also many options for accommodations. You may find rustic rooms, comfortable condos or elegant villas to rent for a night, week, or even a month, all at reasonable pricing. It's also possible to obtain better rates, if you decide to stay longer.
