Accessible primarily by water taxi, this community provides a true taste of rustic Mexico. You'll find plenty of former hippies, artists and laid-back locals here. Take a hike to the waterfall then sprawl out on the golden beach below.

Try a slice of pie from one of the vendors who balance the homemade goodies in plastic containers on their heads. To get here, catch a boat from Marina Vallarta, Boca de Tomatlán and Los Muertos Pier which run daily.
