A UN LADO DEL RÍO TOMATLÁN



LA CALA -BOCA DE TOMATLÁN

BEAUTIFUL BOCA DE TOMATLÁN:  “Boca,” as it is called by the locals, is a 10 or 11 mile gracefully curving drive south on the highway and is the last stop connected to the southern coastline.  From Boca, one drives inland for another couple of hours before reaching the coast again.The little village, settled on both sides of the Tomatlán river and next to a calm cove, is the starting point for one of the most gorgeous walks/hikes I´ve ever been on, passing more quiet coves and deserted beaches before reaching las Ánimas.  From there, one can continue on south or have lunch and take a water taxi back to either Boca or the modern pier at los muertos beach.Boca is a charming spot to sit under an umbrella and eat fresh ceviche or shrimp tostadas before and after a swim.  The prices are very reasonable at the restaurants on the beach – 15 pesos for a very fresh ceviche tostada and 40 pesos for a shrimp tostada.  Boca de Tomatlán with its peaceful cove, river, palms and jungled hills would have inspired Gauguin if he had visited.

Colonia 5 de mayo is close to the stadium and restaurants and a few minutes away by car from centro Vallarta.  Rene, the owner of la Palada Consentida, closes his popular patio restaurant for the summer months and generously offered the space to PEACEAnimals.  He made sure tables and chairs were stacked in the back area so there was plenty of space for surgery and recovery tables.  On Wednesday, Shannon and Soraya were able to bring in two pregnant cats just captured on the isla Cuale before the team had to turn people away on the first day.

CAPTURADOS EN LA ISLA CUALE POR ALMENDRA Y SORAYA DE PURO GATO

Soraya emailed me to say that Thursday evening she and her sister Almendra captured two one-month old kittens and three four-month old kittens 4 months old.  Only two of those were taken to PEACEAnimals clinic this week because the other were too thin.

As many of the island cats have been sterilized, the sisters have created very effective traps involving a cardboard box with a cut-out that will just allow kittens to enter. 

CLINIC LOCATIONS:  We are grateful for the donations of so many locations in the areas in which we need to operate.

CLÍNICA EN COLONIA 5 DE MAYO

The vet team works under less than perfect conditions as one can see from the weekly photographs.  Investigations are ongoing regarding purchase of a used or converted mobile unit.  If you have any leads, please advise.  A special fund would need to be created for purchase of such a unit.
