MEET US THERE
Aeroplanes are fast
Fly to Valencia and then make your way to our camp. A train will take you into the city centre (Estación del Norte) from the airport and another train from there to Puçol. From Puçol, we pick you up, yeah buddy. Check out the little hint below for details of your Valencia – Puçol* commute.
Trains are simple
It was once considered glamorous to travel by train. These days it’s merely considered to be faster, yet more expensive, than buses and slower, but often cheaper, than planes.
Same deal. Estación del Norte is the main station. Just get a ride to there, jump on a local train to Puçol* and we do the rest.
FOR QUICK, CHEAP AND EASY TRAINS CHECK OUT EUROVENTURE.
Buses take you places
Same thing again. Just make sure you get a ride to Valencia and not somewhere else, like Palencia, which is on the other side of Spain, but presumably full of pals.
Valencia to the Campsite:
You buy your ticket to Puzol (Puçol, pronounced ‘Puthol’) from the Main Hall of Estación 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 on 0034 625 304 703…
We will be doing pick-ups every hour from 9am-8pm on the day before La Tomatina. If you arrive on other days or outside these times, you can call us between 9am & 8pm for a pick-up. After that, you just jump in a 5-minute cab. Same deal for if you arrive before 9am or after 8pm.

Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here…
Should I bring a change of clothes for La Tomatina?
Yes, especially if you are on the day trip. The bus driver will not let you on in tomato pulp. If you’re not on the day trip, maybe just bring a black plastic bag so they’ll let you on the bus back to camp. Also, be sure to stand directly in front of one of the hose-holding locals and let the beautiful, cold water clean you of excess fruit baggage before you head back towards the bus.
What else should I bring?
Sunglasses and sunscreen as it gets pretty hot, a pillow and torch for your tent, goggles, condoms, a waterproof camera, swimmers to have a dip in the pool afterwards, old shoes that can be thrown out after the madness, and shampoo if you don’t want your hair stained red for the next month. Oh and don’t forget a towel.
Are the shuttles to and from Tomatina included in the price?
Yes and no. The shuttles to and from Tomatina are included. We also throw in some boxes of red wine to get you started. The Tomatina ticket (imposed by the local Government) is included in the La Tomatina/Ibiza package.
Do you provide transport from Valencia centre?
No, but getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy and we pick you up from the train station there. We have set pickup times (9am – 8pm on the hour) and outside of that, just let us know when you are on the train from Valencia’s central station to Puzol and we’ll jump in the car and head over. See how to get there details for more info.
What is the breakfast like?
Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty fricking good at food.
It said on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
Yes, the twin tents are two-man tents. We have two-man tents, so if you are in a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Tents are allocated on arrival, so just let us know your preferences when you arrive. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want to leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… You never know…
And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
The campsite is awesome! It has a giant pool, a playground, a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, and it’s a five-minute walk from the beach.
Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items?
The campsite itself has no lockers, but we a campervan which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.
If someone throws a tomato at my head can I kick them?
Only if you kick them hard in the shins.
Will the tomato be good for my skin?
If by good you mean sting like hell but still be worth it, then yes.
If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.
What’s the campsite like?
Our campsite is a slice of heaven by the sea with loads of activities, loads of time to chill out and sip our drinks and ample moonlight beach dancing opportunities. We set up your tent for you with air mattress and sleeping bag, we have daily yoga sessions, snorkeling equipment, cliffs perfect for jumping off nearby and visits to hippie markets.
What should I bring?
Sunscreen, beachwear, a towel, something awesome to party in, condoms, a camera, condoms (better safe than sorry!), a torch to see the inside of your tent, a pillow.
Is alcohol cheap?
As mentioned above, there’s an open bar from 11am to 11pm. That helps cut costs of boozing up, so your purse won’t be stretched too far to get a good booze buzz going. Beware, spirits and beers in da clubs are more expensive than a high end prostitute on a Saturday night, so make the most of pre-drinking and you shall be thrifty little party animals.
What clubs will we go to?
You can go wherever you want young, wild child. The campsite has live music most nights and we will judge the best club for that night, it may be Pacha, Space or other world class party venues. We usually manage to get great Ibiza club discounts for your entry depending on the night, time to letcha hair out and get weird.
Will I pull a hottie?
Ibiza is renowned for beautiful people dancing on boats in crisp, white swimwear, their tanned bodies glistening in the sunshine. It’s also renowned for its crazy parties. Basically what we’re getting at is if you know how to play your cards right and appreciate divine, semi-clothed beauties you should be on your way to island paradiso.
