A group of us took an early am jaunt for some scuba diving to this laid back easy going authentic fishing village. We went for scuba but got way more out of it than just that. Stayed for beers and lunch on one of the few open air restaurants surrounding the beach. The owner was delighted to have our business... More

Since we were on Harley's it was not your typical ride to El Tuito, Tehua & Mayto. You tend to soak up the country and air around you so much more. First stop was in Las Juntas de los Vernos to quinch the thirst and then on to Tuito. Quick snack in El Tuito and then head on to Mayto,... More

We recently stayed overnight at the Mayto Beach area and we drove 3 km further south to Tehuamixtle for lunch. It is a small but charming town nestled in a very scenic bay. Because of the bay, the surf was much less than at Mayto. The water is very clear with shades of emerald, turquoise and blue. Several panga boats... More

As with most of the other reviewers here we were staying at the Mayto Beach Hotel. I have heard of the fantastic oysters in Tehua for years and this was my first opportunity to try them myself. The oysters are all that and more. What I didnt expect was the charming little village, beautiful ocean views and friendly locals. This... More

We were visiting wonderful Mayto beach and were told that if we wanted a special treat to visit Tehuamixtle and were given directions. It is only 5 minutes away and is a scenic little fishing village. The people are extremely friendly and the seafood restaurant is a great place to eat. We truly enjoyed our visit.

It took a couple of hours and some bumpy dirt roads, but what a sweet, charming little village we came upon. The small boats in the harbor, the children in the water and the sun shining warmly. Never knew this existed until this trip to PV. What a treat. We had lunch and tasted some of the best shrimp ceviche... More

Like the previous poster above, I was looking for a mellow,laid back, non touristy location and found it 100%, with a trip up to Mayto beach/Tehuamixtle area. My wife and I stayed(in Mayto beach) at the Hotel Ricconcitto and Hotel Mayto for four and two nights respectivlley and loved that location as well. The very gracious and friendly owner of... More

Leaving Vallarta on highway 200 you have the feeling that you are in for a typical mountain drive, gorgeous terrain, mountains, jungles and panoramic views. About 30 miles in you will encounter what I have found to be the larger of the rural towns scattered along the way. El Tuite (L to weed o) which became our jumping off point,... More
