My husband and I took a "party boat" out of the Marina Terminal with BeachBoy. Though the boat was NOT the highlight Quimixto was. It is a very very small town, poor and run down, but very friendly people. We bought FRESH coconut on the way up, sooo good! $30 pesos a bag. When we arrived you could see at... More

First of all those were not horses, the waterfall, ya not so much. Snorkelling was in for 5 min and get out. One men asked if he could take a pic of my husband and myself with my camera.... Wanted $5 total tourist trap....

It was fantastic to ride the horses up to the waterfall! The town was so cute and I just had no idea what to expect. I raved about the Sea Safari tour but I was the only female in the group who liked the boat ride. It was bumpy for all of us especially my husband and I in the... More

Nice little beach, but we were there mainly for the hike and waterfall. The hike was about 30-45 minutes to the waterfall, but totally worth it. We got lucky when we arrived at the waterfall - everyone there was leaving. So we had a waterfall to ourselves. It really is beautiful and the water is a refreshing after the hike.... More

Are you looking to get away from the crowded beaches and attractions of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and escape to a little peace and quite local style? DO NOT sign up for the expensive tours packed full of tourists and noisy, touristy people! Go it alone and on the cheap! Quimixto is a very small village south of Puerto Vallarta, has... More

This place is like a forgotten place in the mountains, I will recommend to hire a horse which is 200 pesos and they take you to the water fall which is a great experience to do, you MUST get into the water which is COLD but wakes you up. The town is a death town and they have a little... More

First, I want to thank all the people who suggested to do this activity on own rather than getting a tour. Because that's exactly what we did and had an amazingly great experience. We took the bus to Boca and then water taxi to Quimixto (they do not offer any life jackets on the water taxi, so if you don't... More

Its about a 40min walk to the falls. You can rent a horse for $20 at the base. I didn't enjoy this home as the trails for the horse back ride is the same trail as hiking by foot, so when you hike you are walking up a trail full of horse pooh and flys with the buzzing telling you... More

This place is Magical! Loved it!! This is coastal Mexico as I saw it 35 years ago. I hope they have the good sense to preserve it. If you love sitting in your "all-inclusive" being served drinks all day this is not the place for you, and the rest of us outdoorsy types would prefer you stay there as well.... More
