On the outskirts of Puerto Vallarta lies a beach of untamed charm: Boca de Tomates Beach. Located behind the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, this place captivates visitors with its environment and unparalleled gastronomic offerings.

Surrounded by the Extensive Mangrove Area of Boca de Tomates, this beach stands out for its picturesque seaside restaurants, known as “ramadas”, where the famous Zarandeado-style Fish is served, making this place a culinary reference in the region. Despite its tranquil and isolated location, Boca de Tomates attracts a wide audience eager to discover its attributes and taste its delicious cuisine.

However, although its waters and soft sand invite you to rest and relax, it is important to note that the beach is not suitable for swimming or recreational activities due to the constant presence of crocodiles, especially near the Boca Negra estuary and the mouth of the Ameca River. The strong waves also make it necessary to enjoy this beach from the shore.

Likewise, its proximity to the Boca Negra estuary offers the unique opportunity to observe birds, turtles and other animals in their natural habitat, immersing yourself in the biological richness of the region.

Boca de Tomates Beach is much more than just a beach; it is a place to discover the biodiversity of our destination and savor one of our destination’s most typical dishes.

In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
