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 La Tomatina Festival 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).
And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!

Getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy!
If you fly to Valencia airport, there are two underground lines which link the airport, the city centre and the port: the line 3 (Rafelbunyol-Aeroport) and the line 5 (Marítim Serrería – Torrent Av. / Aeroport). The station is at the ground floor of the regional flights terminal. The journey takes around 25 minutes. Tickets: €4.90 (3.90 + €1 for the card)
Take lines 3 or 5 and stop at Xativa station then make your way to Nord Railway Station (Estación del Norte).
From there, jump the next train to Puçol (check train timetable on RENFE) We have set pickup times (9am – 8pm on the hour on the 27th and 28th August) and outside of that, email us at email@example.com 24 hours in advance and we’ll do our best to pick you up. If not, it’s a short taxi ride.
Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here….
Should I bring a change of clothes?
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.
What is the this foreplay party?
The foreplay party is what kicks starts the party at our campsite with live bands and DJs. Make sure to pack a good party shirt!
Are the shuttles to and from Tomatina and the other Water & Wine festival included in the price?
Yes and no. The shuttles to and from Tomatina are included. It’s €15 extra for the transportation to and from the Water & Wine fight. We also throw in some boxes of red wine to get you started. Please note the Tomatina bracelet is not included in the Meet Us There price, but is €10 extra. This is not our choice! The town council has imposed this extra charge. It is included in the package deals.
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 on the 27th and 28th August) and outside of that, email us 24 hours in advance and we’ll do our best to pick you up. If not, it’s a short taxi ride. 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.
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.
Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
