This beach is very popular with families in Puerto Vallarta, especially during the weekend where there is live music and entertainment for kids. On the northernmost side of Boca de Tomates beach you will find small, unpretentious eateries, all family-run, palapa-style establishments with menus based on fresh seafood.
The waves at Boca de Tomates can be strong, making it ideal for water sports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. Avoid swimming in the ocean or near the mouth of the nearby Ameca River; remember that this is a mangrove area (though a great place for birdwatching) and a natural habitat for wildlife.
Boca de Tomates is very close to Puerto Vallarta International Airport. At approximately 3,000 feet long, it is a quiet beach that is also home to the Boca de Tomates Turtle Release Camp. At low tide, it can be reached by walking along the coast from the north end of Marina Vallarta.
