Mayto Beach- Numero Uno! ☝️
Dec. 2020 • Couples
Several trips to this hidden gem! Tehua and Mayto are my forever favorite beaches! Locals are so helpful and fishing in the cove was a unique experience I have never experienced and probably never will! Looking forward to going back!!🏖🛥⚓️🌄

There's a really good restaurant here, you can't miss it, it's a HUGE palapa (palmed roof). They have these stunning, massive wood tables that I've never seen anywhere. The fish ceviche tostadas are really good. The beach is small but the waves were too rough to get in. Beautiful views.

Oyster Heaven!
Feb. 2017
While staying at Cabanas El Cielito on a remote stretch of beach on the Pacific south of Puerto Vallarta, we visited the little town of Tehualmixtle, a couple miles away down a bumpy dirt road. This little fishing village is located in a sheltered bay, and is famous for its seafood, and in particular, its oysters. We were turned on to the place by folks staying at the cabanas, and they said the restaurant to go was "Candy's." While there was no sign on this giant palapa-topped restaurant to the right of the harbor, it was obvious the happening place. Huge space, thick tables made from slabs sawed from tree trunks, sandy floors. Candy's offered a variety of different seafood platters, but we had come for the oysters. Available multiple ways, we decided to have ours breaded and pan fried! An employee of the restaurant shucked the oyster per order harbor side, and then ran them into the kitchen. They don't get any fresher! Because there were already a dozen tables of customers dining when we got there, it took about 2 hours for us to get dinner, but hey, your in Mexico! Like you got places to go and things to do? We enjoyed a couple of cold beers while we waited, and watched the kids playing on the beach, and the fishing boats come and go. When our platters arrived, it made everything worth the wait. There were about 15 to 18 oyster per plate, cooked to perfection, accompanied by Mexican rice, salad, and fresh warm rolls. I think they cost us about $12 a plate. Certainly some of the best oysters we ever had. An dinner we'll always remember. This is old-time Mexico. It's disappearing fast. Nice to still be able to experience it!

If you are looking for secluded beaches, fresh fish restaurants, then head south of Puerto Vallarta for a fun adventure.

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 and enjoyed cooking us our lunch on her patio propane grill. Of course we got the special of the day, amazing enchiladas. Besides the local fishermen and the pelicans there were only a few other tourists. The owners of the shops we stopped in were appreciative and very welcoming. In fact while we ate lunch we were allowed to keep our beers that we bought in the store cooler down the road so they stayed cold. It would be well worth it to spend a night or two here.

Ride the wind, smell the air, taste food of the sea!

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, stopping along the way at a neighborhood grocery store again for a soda and chat up the locals to ask about the conditions of the roads. Found out only 3 miles of it is unpaved and when we were on it just went slower but no major potholes to worry about! Less than an hour we were pulling up to Tehua to relax at a restaurant and slurp down some of the freshest oysters and cerviche in Jalisco! After awhile we backtrack the 5 min drive to Mayto. I was blow away by the beauty of the beach! So serene, remote and sexy all rolled into one place. Wish we had the opportunity to stay overnight. Alas the return to PV & civilization was inevitable. Mayto is certainly on my list of favorite finds and I hope to return as soon as I can. Ole to a great day down Mexico way!

Fabulous Setting
Mar. 2015 • Couples
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 are anchored in the harbour. We enjoyed an excellent and quite reasonable lunch at the larger restaurant that overlooks the bay. We didn't sample the oysters but several tables had ordered it. The service was very good. We had heard that there are no accommodations in Tehuamixle. That is no longer the case, as we noticed 2 small hotels.

Off, off the turista trail
Feb. 2014 • Friends
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 place is a rare gem. It's not easy to get to but well worth the drive.
