Boca de Tomatlan is a small fishing village ten miles south of
Puerto Vallarta. There are four small grocerias, a tortia factory
and 4 sesaside restaurants with palapa (thatched roof) style eating,
right on the beach. We always dine at Ramones' Hauchienango, (Red
Snapper), Restaurant. Have a meal served to you at a table on
the beach with your feet in the sand. Fishing boats bring in fresh
fish each day for purchase. There are boat trips that leave for
various destinations further down the coast. Water taxis provide
round trip service to Yelapa daily. Boca boats are also available
for hire for fishing as well as snorkeling and scuba diving at
such places as Los Arcos National Reserve and Calamitus. Boca
Divers can arrange water excursions for you on request. They are
a reliable professional resource. Sea kayaks are also available
for rental for use in the bay or to paddle to secluded beaches
down the coast.
From November through February whale watching is a popular pastime
as the mothers and new borns migrate south from the Baja peninsula.
It's exciting to see whales and dolphin frolic in the Boca bay
while relaxing on our patio. Hike the jungle path along the seaside
cliff with dramatic vistas and tropical flora and fauna or take
a horseback ride along waterfalls in Mismoloya (next village north).
The local people in Boca are friendly and welcoming. Guests are
warmly invited to the many village fiestas that happen throughout
the year. The Boca is an ideal place just to relax and get away
or engage in any number of the numerous activities it has to offer.
Puerto Vallarta/ Boca de Tomatlan is tropical, located on the
same parallel as the Hawaiian Islands. The temperature averages
28 degrees C. 82 degrees F. with an average of 300 sunny days
a year. The rainy season is from late June to early October.
