HOW TO GET THERE

 

You will fly into Puerto Vallarta Mexico and either take a yellow private taxi,which must be obtained on other side of highway via foot bridge(as you walk out of the front door it is to your left), OR you would take a white taxi downtown then catch a bus or yellow cab to Boca de Tomatlan where you will catch the Nayely water taxi 322 132-4802(leaves at 9 AM & 3PM everyday) 130 pesos.

NOTE: Although the distance between the airport and Los Chonchos is only 30 miles, if your flight arrives past 2pm you may need to stay one night in Puerto Vallarta(www.posadarogerhotel.com)  since the last water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan leaves at 3pm. Another option would be to hire a private boat from Boca to Los Chonchos if you need to get out there after the 3 pm water taxi departs(approx.$150.US+/-).
