Here in Puerto Vallarta, there are truly few places that can match the beauty and serenity of Colomitos Beach. This tropical corner, with its crystal-clear waters and tranquil atmosphere, is a must-visit destination for those looking to relax in an unparalleled natural setting.

Located south of Puerto Vallarta, Colomitos Beach may be small in size (only 30 meters of coastline), but it is large in charm and allure. What makes this beach so special? The answer lies in its practically untouched natural beauty: calm, crystal-clear waters that offer a privileged view of the rich marine life that inhabits its depths.

Beneath the waves of Colomitos Beach, snorkelers can see a variety of marine life, from puffer fish to moray eels and king angels. Each creature that inhabits this underwater ecosystem contributes to the richness and diversity of this marine sanctuary.

There are two ways to get to this paradise: by hiking a winding trail between the jungle and the ocean, or by taking a water taxi from Boca de Tomatlán. The hike, which begins on the other side of the river that crosses Boca de Tomatlán, is an experience in itself, with a well-marked and signposted trail that ensures a safe and exciting trip of about 45 minutes.

For those who prefer to conserve their energy to enjoy the beach, water taxis offer a quick and convenient option. From Boca de Tomatlán, these taxis will take you to Colomitos in just 5 minutes, allowing you to dive into the crystal-clear waters and relax on the beach in no time.

Whether you choose the excitement of hiking through the jungle or the convenience of the water taxi, a visit to Colomitos Beach is an experience you won’t easily forget.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
