Las Animas Beach is a little slice of paradise to the south of Puerto viarta and is a place I have had on my bucket list for years to get there you need to take a bus or a taxi from Puerto via to the small fishing Village of boka De
Tomad Lan from here you can either hike to Las Animas in about 2 hours or you can take a 5-minute boat ride which costs 100 Mexican pesos good morning today I am so excited to go somewhere that I have wanted to go for years I have been to ptoa six or seven
Times and I’ve always had this place on my list but I haven’t had a chance until now to get over there today I’m going to Las Animas which is a from what I understand very beautiful beach that you can only access either by boat or by
Hiking there so I’m going to hike there and and perhaps take the boat back but first I need to go get some cash because the area where you get the boat from Bo tomad Lan uh does not have any ATMs and I’m pretty sure if you want food you
Want to pay for the boat you want to do anything uh you’re going to need to pay in Mexican besso so let’s go get some so one of the reasons I’ve never gone to tight before is it’s a little bit of a mission um you have to take the bus to B
Toman which takes about an hour and then it’s a 2 and 1/2 hour hike to the beach and then you do it all in verse my loose plan is to do the bus the hike see how my legs feel what time it is how much Daylight’s left uh and probably take the
Boat back to badlan and then possibly take an Uber depending on the price I checked this morning and it’s about 300 pesos which is around about $15 so we’ll see after getting some cash I got in line for the bus outside of Oxo I’ll link in the description below where the
Bus stop is located it only costs cost 10 pesos or about 60 the bus to boka only took about 35 minutes in the end so much faster than I thought it would be the bus ends here so you’ll know you’ve arrived when everybody gets off the bus from here walk towards the water
And then to the left so that the river is on your right side until you see the foot bridge that takes you across the river and along this beautiful Coastal path so from what I read this hike is not strenuous in any way um but there
Are a lot of rocks it’s not fully paved all the way so I’ve worn sneakers and socks um I’ve got my bathing suit on underneath but shorts that are comfortable for walking in a big 32 oz bottle of water uh some snacks because I think there are
Restaurants on the beaches but um my plan is to come back to Boke tomad Lan for lunch cuz I heard that the food here is awesome so that’s my plan for the day the path is a little bit uneven to say the least but for the most part it’s
Pretty easy to follow there are signs everywhere pointing the way to kitos and Las Animas I don’t know if the trail was affected by some of the tropical storms that came through PTO via this year but all these articles that I read about this Trail being
Easy Li woo as I fall over it’s not like not really hard but there’s scrambling like there’s Sandy path it’s quite steep there’s a lot of stairs and it’s hot and this is in December it’s December 16th today and it’s over 80° so yeah it’s a little difficult never travel to Mexico without
Travel insurance You walk past several beaches along the way to Las Animas where you may be tempted to stop and stay for a while I actually thought perhaps a little controversially that the beaches along the way were even more beautiful than Las Animas itself first you come to colomitos then Playa
Madagascar Playa cabayo and eventually Las Animas opens up to a wide Bay full of boats and restaurants ready to serve you and all of the other day visitors most of whom arrive by Boat the hike at a leisurely Pace takes about 2 hours especially if you stop for photos or simply to enjoy the different beaches along the way well this is a much bigger Beach than I thought it was going to be there like restaurant I was so hungry by the time I
Arrived the plan to wait until I was back in bokeh was out of the question so I found a place where I could Lounge in the shade and enjoy some delicious Seafood after a few celebratory pacificas I decided the best idea would be to take the boat back to Boa at told
For about $5 it was totally worth it not only for saving my legs but to enjoy the views back over all the Bays I hope you enjoyed hiking these beautiful beaches with me is it worth it I think the hike is 100% worth it it’s one of the most beautiful hikes I’ve
Done in Mexico there’s no doubting that but I do think I would probably rather spend my time at Playa cabayo or Madagascar there’s so much more Solitude there and as long as you bring all you need for the day you can have what feels like your own private
Beach if you enjoyed this video please give it a thumbs up it really supports my channel and I will see you next time as we Explore More of beautiful Mexico
