La Tomatina Festival

Don't Throw Your Salad!



Madness. Just pure madness. An awesome opportunity to be involved in La Tomatina festival in Spain. Every year on the last wednesday in August this sleepy Spanish Pueblo goes crazy with the worlds largest food fight. We are arranging a group of tomato flingers, so sign up and get involved. Grab a cheap flight to Valencia and let the carnage commence!


La Tomatina Festival: Trip Highlights


White washed walls, the occasional donkey and not much going on for the 9000 or so residents. Bunol, an hour from Valencia was not the most exciting of places. Then one day, in 1945, someone had an epiphany. Lets go nuts and have a massive food fight. The Tomatina was born.

Accommodation


We stay just north of Valencia city, in a beach town called Puzol (Puçol in the local lingo – it’s pronounced Puthol though, confusing right? Puzol is well connected to Valencia city, and we have our own private shuttles for the festivals, and for visits to town. Puzol is located on a stretch of beautiful Mediterranean beaches and every year we arrive and blow the town’s collective mind.

Our camp is beachside…. you can get out of your tent, make a beeline for the beach and be splashing about within 5 minutes of opening your sangria-soaked eye sockets. The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool with slide, clean amenities, great authentic Spanish atmosphere (it’s not uncommon to be invited into a family’s caravan for a meal of authentic local paella).

Frequently Asked Questions



  • The city council follows a short list of instructions for the safety of the participants and the festival:

    • The tomatoes have to be squashed before throwing to avoid injuries.
    • No other  projectiles  except tomatoes are allowed.
    • Participants have to give way to the truck and lorries.
    • The festival doesn’t allow ripping off T-shirts.
    • After the second shot indicative of ending the tomato hurl, no tomatoes should be thrown.

  • We stay in a campsite which is by the beach in a small Mediterranean town called  Puzol. This is preferable to staying in Valencia where the price of accommodation skyrockets for the weekend.  You buy your  ticket to Puzol (Pucol, pronounced ‘Puthol’) from the Main Hall of Estacion del Norte. They cost 2 bucks, which is bubblegum money. There are two ticket counters, one air-conditioned glass box that sells long distance trips and one right smack bang in the middle of the main hall that sells short journeys. Puçol is just up the road from Valencia, so make sure you sweat it out in the main hall, ok? The ticket waitress will tell you the platform.

    Once you reach Pucol, give us a call wIse will be doing pickups every our from 9am-5pm on the day before Tomatina. If you arrive on other days or outside these times, you can call us between 9am & 7pm for a pickup. After that, you just jump in a 5 minute cab. Same deal for if you arrive before 9am.

The Wine Fight Rioja

Come climb up the hill with Xtreme and throw gallons of cheap wine over perfectly innocent strangers. San Vino, as we call it, La Batalla del Vino de Haro, as the locals call it, is a full on war path in the middle of the vineyard and we own it. All’s fair in love and wine battles.
