Do La Tomatina 2017 the easy way with Stoke Travel

by 1st Contact | Apr 12, 2017
  • Buñol is a small Spanish town just an hour from Valencia. Once a year, this sleepy city hosts the biggest tomato fight in the world – La Tomatina. This is the sauciest festival around and you don’t want to miss out on the mayhem. Our friends at Stoke Travel have made it easier than ever.

    What to expect

    Thousands of people stream into Buñol, filling the streets of the suburbs. Once the cannons fire and the trucks have jammed their way through the crowd, they unload tons of tomatoes. As the fruits are flung, the streets turn red and friendships are formed.

    Once the madness is over, Stoke Travel will rinse you off and take you back to your glorious camp by the beach. You’ll spend the afternoon swimming in the sea and drinking unlimited amounts of sangria and beer. You’ll get a home-cooked meal and then polish up in time to head to the official La Tomatina 2017 afterparty.
