Tour Details

Located on the south side of Bahia de Banderas, Colomitos still remains undiscovered by most. This beautiful little cove is a real treasure and well worth the hike to get there. The hike is approximately two miles each way. You'll cool off later with a refreshing snorkel at Colomitos Cove.

After traveling by air-conditioned van from the city, you will join your naturalist guide and small group along a hiking path that follows the coastline at the bottom of the Sierras and passes under the canopy of beautiful plumerias, palms and strangling ficuses. Occasionally, iguanas can be seen running across the path. Inhabiting the lower regions of these mountains, are red foxes, armadillos, skunks, raccoons, and mountain crabs. Along this path, you may see termite nests of impressive size, and the unique and precarious-looking nest of the yellow-winged cacique.

Once at Colomitos Cove, you'll go snorkeling among many colorful tropical fishes found in that area, including king angels, panamic sergeant majors, some puffer fishes, eels, and many other species. Before starting our hike back, you'll enjoy a picnic-style lunch of small sandwiches, snacks and water at the beautiful golden-sand beach.

Reviewer: Joy Lavin-Jones
This was a wonderful trip. We had a very nice, knowledgeable young man (Michael) as our guide. He knew all about the birds, flowers, insects, fish etcetera. He was very friendly and did a terrific job leading the hike and the snorkeling part of the trip. We had a very comfortable, air conditioned van to travel to/from the start of the hike. They even provided lunch and snacks. I would definitely recommend this trip to others!

Reviewer: Paula Walker
My husband and I, both in our upper 50s went on this excursion in March. Our guide, Cynthia, was very informative, friendly, and helpful. As previous reviews state, the hike is a little steep at times, but we really enjoyed it, The snorkel was wonderful, although we felt it was a little short. Some of our group had never snorkeled before and Cynthia was great with them. Colomitos beach was beautiful, but there were quite a few people there.They provided a small lunch and water. You are taken in a van about 45 minutes out of Puerta Vallarta to Boca de Tomatlan village where the hike starts. Our guide took us through downtown Puerta Vallarta and pointed out the sites and afterwards she brought us back to our cruise port.

Reviewer: Carol groves
From start to finish this excursion gave us an intimate look at Puerto Vallarta. Michael, our guide, took us on a great hike through neighborhoods and lush areas where iguanas lazed in the trees. We relaxed, snorkels, swam and lunched at a pocket beach, then hiked back to our air conditioned van. Would recommend to anyone who wants do something less touristy with a desire to explore, learn and discover this lovely part of the Mexican Rivera.
