My friend and I were so glad that we chose Casa de Piedra in Boca de Tomatlan for our 10 day stay. We didn't want to be in the middle of the city and Boca was the answer - very laid back, relaxed, friendly...you get to know the store-owners and restaurant-owners by name....quiet and calm...exactly what we were looking for. The only disturbance was from the roosters and dogs but even they grew on us after a short time and we missed them when we went home! Hiking was great to some fabulous, empty and pristine beaches. The beach at Boca is beautiful and clean and we enjoyed watching the families swim in both the ocean and the river, which runs right into it. Delfines was our favourite restaurant and we felt we deserved our meal after walking up, up, up the hill. The bus ride into Puerto Vallarta was only 30 minutes and ridiculously cheap. We loved going there for the shopping, restaurants, sights and then coming home to our cozy getaway in Boca. Check out snorkeling with Karla. Bob and Sue know all the places to go, eat, see, etc. and were awesome hosts. Bob is a hoot and a terrific tease and he and Sue do and wonderful job of making you feel welcome. Breakfasts were included and very nice. I particularly appreciated how clean our cozy unit was and the beds were super comfortable. I'd go back there in a heartbeat.
