Las Ánimas & Quimixto en Puerto Vallarta


On this occasion, I took on the task of visiting two places on one trip due to their closeness. It wasn’t complicated to get there since there are boat trips that will take you to explore both places. You can only reach these locations by sea, but that doesn’t mean that they are totally isolated from civilization. While they both offer a great variety of restaurants, these beaches also have many other services to offer.

As in any tourist destination, souvenirs are a must. Here, you will find not only necklaces and bracelets of various stones, but also hats, bathing suits, dresses and many other items. Another attraction is taking pictures with the iguanas that inhabit this area, for just a tip.

One of the main attractions of Quimixto is a visit to the waterfall, approximately 30 meters high, which drops into a lagoon hat has been turned into a 15-meter-deep swimming hole. Swimming is permitted, but caution is recommended due to its depth. During the winter season, the water is very cold, another reason to be careful.
