As we know, there are many things to see and do in Puerto Vallarta and, among them, a must-see is a weekend getaway in Mayto, Cabo Corrientes. This is a beach two hours from Vallarta, with stretches of dirt road that drive away the typical tourists, so it is a guarantee that if you dare, you will be able to enjoy this hidden paradise without crowds.
To get there, it is necessary to take the road to Colima from Vallarta. The road begins passing through Conchas Chinas, Mismaloya and Boca de Tomatlán. Further on it is necessary to cross El Tuito, a small town where you can stop for breakfast or even just buy their famous panela cheese. Passing El Tuito it is necessary to follow the signs to the “Hotel Mayto” and it will take you to one of the accesses to the beach.
Upon arrival, you will find the surprise of a beach with an extension of kilometers and kilometers practically alone, with the sea water with that particular “Pacific blue” color, with views towards the green vegetation of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean crossed only by the strip of sand that divides them. Throughout its extension, there are only two hotels and a turtle camp where turtles are released when it is season.
Also, the sunsets will leave you speechless, as the sky is covered in orange and pink hues while you slowly watch the sunset.
To stay there are the Hotel Mayto and the Cabañas El Cielito. Both have a pool area, restaurant, palapas and kayak rental. Hotel Mayto also has a designated area for camping and you can use all the facilities, as well as showers and bathrooms. It is also possible to stay at the turtle camp, a foundation that protects the four marine species found in Jalisco. You can find here more information about the camp.
So if you already had it in mind or are looking for a weekend getaway, be sure to go to Mayto.
