Essentials of Our Destination: Water Taxi Trip to the South Shore
Traveling by water taxi to Vallarta · Nayarit’s South Shore is a must. It involves a ride in a panga (outboard motorboat) to reach some of the coastal towns in this area that, due to their location, jungle vegetation and rough routes, are mainly accessed by sea.
Seventy years ago, Puerto Vallarta was a small fishing village, so it was common to see fishermen going out to sea aboard their pangas. With the growth and popularity of our destination, some of them changed their approach and began offering tours to nearby sites whose beauty continues to be spectacular.

The most popular embarkation points are the Los Muertos Pier and Boca de Tomatlán, where the adventure begins with enjoying the sea breeze and where, little by little, one of the most beautiful landscapes of the bay unfolds: the fusion of the mountains of the Sierra Madre Occidental with the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean.
