This was an amazing experience and not necessarily for the faint of heart! The palapa was awesome. If you love camping then this is for you. Being on the edge of the jungle right in view of the beach was a calming and peaceful experience....More

The cost is about $10.00 per person each way. Boca de Tomatlan is about a 30 minute drive from Puerto Vallarta and 45 minutes from the airport. The village os Chimo is about 2 miles from the palapa house where one can get groceries, beer and fish. There are also 2 restaurants in Chimo. Chimo is about a 45 minute beautiful hike, or you can take the water taxi there as well.
