On this 5-6 hours tour, we will take you by boat to Boca de Tomatlán, a nice fishing village, at the delta of the Horcones River, where tourists and locals meet to take water taxis to the southern beaches of Bahia de Banderas. This is where we start our hike to Las Animas. From Boca, the highway goes inland, so there are very few options to get to the beaches to the south of Bahia de Banderas: boat, swim or take the natural path along the coast, which we will do! Following the path approximately 1 mile away from Boca, we will arrive at a small cove: Colomitos, blue and calm water characterizes this area. Enjoy the fresh ocean breeze, time to relax and take some nice pictures. We will snorkel around these blue waters, where hundreds of different species live. We may even encounter manta rays and sea turtles. Then we are off to Las Animas, to have lunch and relax before coming back to Vallarta. Lunch is not included, but the prices at the restaurants are great, and so is the food!!!

We leave the marina at 9 am, it will take approximately 30 minutes for us to get to Boca de Tomatlan. Once there, the guide will provide a bottle of water for everybody, and show you around town. Then we start our hike towards Colomitos, with full explanation about the environment, plant and animal species that we might encounter (lizards, birds, insects,...). Depending on the group speed we will reach Colomitos within 30 minutes, and then enjoy some time in the water relaxing and snorkeling too (approximately 30 minutes).
We then get back on the boat and get the ride to Las Animas, to have lunch.
