Boca de Tomatlan to Las Animas hike 🚶🏽‍♀️🏝️🌊☀️👙

Updated: Jun 23, 2023

This is the perfect getaway were you can enjoy an adventure that will take you through coastal jungles and a trail along beautiful beaches.

Completing the hike straight through, without stopping, will take you around 2 hours. This trail is an easy mixture of cobbled paths and jungle dirt trails. Even though the hike is not long, roughly 2.5 miles you should plan for a full day’s adventure, because what’s the point of hiking besides multiple beaches if you do not take the time to enjoy them!

How to get there?

• You can take the local bus from the corner of Basilio Badillo and Calle Constituction. Located in front of the OXXO, this bus runs every 20 minutes. The bus will cost you 10 pesos and takes around 20-30 minutes.

• Take the water taxi from the Los Muertos Pier. Water taxis leave multiple times per day starting at 10 am and continuing until 6 pm. A round-trip ticket to Boca de Tomatlan will cost around 500 pesos. The trip takes around 40 minutes each way. Be sure to bring cash.

• You can order an Uber or Taxi if you do not feel adventurous.

The trail…

Starting out at Boca de Tomatlan’s bus stop, you walk straight down the road towards town and the ocean. When you get to the end of the road, on the left is where you turn to continue walking. You walk along this road until you come to the concrete pedestrian bridge, that you cross to start the main trail. Once you are across the bridge you follow the path towards your right. This path weaves through houses and follows the coast around to the point of the bay. Just keep to the coast and you will be fine.

What to bring?

• Shoes

• Sandals

• Water

• Snacks

• Bathing Suit

• Sun Screen

• Mosquito Repellent

• Towel

• Cash

Enjoy the beaches and support the local restaurants!

And DO NOT forget that the last water taxi departs around 5pm if you don’t want to walk back.
