Puerta Vallarta – The Hike

….THE BEST HIKE

IMG_3436

Basically, you take a bus to the end of the line and end up in Boca de Tomatlan, from there you do a gorgeous hike and pass tiny secret beaches. You end up in Animas which is a huge meh, so I highly recommend taking your time and stopping a lot. Check out this post that highlights how to get to Boca, and details the difficulty of the trail.

As we approached Animas the group was hungry and in need of alcohol. We turned a corner and stumbled upon Casitas Maraika. A little haven with very few visitors and a private beach, it was an enchanting resort.

We took over this place, spending a lot of time lounging in their hammocks, plush couches, and private beach. It was incredible and we all left fantasizing about having our honeymoons here.

No joke – This is the BEST margarita I have ever had.

Made it to Animas, very lackluster after the incredible day

Hint: You can jump off this pier, it is so much fun

Highly recommend taking a water taxi back right as the sun is setting, simply stunning.
