Boca de Tomatlán is a seaside village that’s less commercialized than Puerto Vallarta and a good place to munch ceviche tostadas on the beach. You can get water taxis from here to more remote beaches further along the bay. It's 16km from Puerto Vallarta, beyond Mismaloya, southwest along the coast.
