Best Tips to Survive La Tomatina

Welcome to our guide on the Best Tips to Survive La Tomatina!

As seasoned experts of Spain’s most vibrant and exhilarating festival, we’re here to provide you with insider advice and tried-and-true strategies to ensure you make the most of this unique event. Our team has gathered invaluable insights from years of participation, and we’re excited to share with you the tips that will not only enhance your experience but also ensure you navigate the festival like a pro.

Whether it’s your first time joining the tomato-throwing madness or you’re a returning enthusiast, our recommendations are tailored to offer maximum value and ensure an unforgettable adventure at La Tomatina.

Let’s dive into the fun, safely and smartly!

Smart Money Management: How to Keep Your Cash Safe and Accessible

PUT YOUR CASH IN A ZIP-LOCK BAG AND PUT THE DAMN THING IN YOUR POCKET!

First of all, don’t take giant wads of cash to La Tomatina.

Unless you plan on buying one of everything on offer, you simply won’t need it.

The money you do take however should be placed in a zip-lock bag and shoved deep inside your pocket, OUR recommendation is 60€ should be more than enough to get some food and drinks.

Actually, inside La Tomatina street there is no possibility to spend any money, so keep it in your pocket or be smart and simply leave with your bag at our lockers service at our HQ.

Secondly, a number of people carry their money in waterproof cases designed for their phone and then hung around their neck (simply put it between your T-shirt and your chest, money should be placed out of sight.

Remember, where there are loads of people, there is always someone with bad ideas, simply be smart.

Staying Safe Among the Crowds: Navigating La Tomatina Street Wisely

There will be about 20,000 to 22,000 people at La Tomatina street and even if it looks chaotic, it’s all pretty safe.

Our recommendation is just be aware of where you locate yourself at the festival, normally at the center of La Tomatina street will get super crowded and intense, simply mind a bit where you locate yourself, but get ready to have an awesome, messy and super fun adventure.

Bracing for Impact: The Reality of Tomato Battles and How to Prepare

ACCEPT SOME TOMATOES WILL HURT.

La Tomatina has several rules, one of which is that tomatoes should be crushed in your hand before being thrown. Not everyone does this. The odd glass of sangria may help to numb the pain somewhat, but there’s very little to avoid the occasional tomato-related injury. Goggles are not the most comfortable thing to wear, but our advice after many years is to wear them 100%, as tomato is acidic and it will go into your eyes making you blind, and you want to see people’s faces when you smash tomatoes at them.

Our BOSS & SLEEPY packages include all the practical gear you will need to be protected 100% but remember it’s Tomato war, get ready to bring your Tomatina warrior out, it is going to be epic.

We can’t really describe with words the emotions and feelings you will experience at La Tomatina, it is soooo much fun, the best we can say is that you will feel like a little kid or a little girl again and you will laugh and laugh and laugh so hard because there is nothing like it in the whole world.

Post-Tomatina Clean-Up: Planning Your Exit and Clean-Up Strategy

SPARE CHANGE OF CLOTHES.

Although there are plenty of locals offering to hose you off on the streets at the close of the festival, trust us when we say that you will in no way feel clean totally until you get to your accommodation in Valencia and will want to remove those tomato-encrusted clothes as soon as possible, if only so you can get on the lovely clean bus (note that you won’t be allowed back on covered in tomato juice). There are no changing rooms so bring something that’s easy to change into without flashing your bits to hundreds of people.

If you follow our recommendation for the clothing as we said at the beginning of this guide, we really think the only thing you need after La Tomatina is finished is a spare clean t-shirt, that you could have inside our Festivals All Around backpack that is included in our BOSS & SLEEPY packages that will be waiting for you at your locker in our headquarters.

Moderation is Key: Enjoying La Tomatina Without Overindulgence

DO NOT GET TOO HAMMERED AT LA TOMATINA.

Unsurprisingly, however, drinking too much in a place where water is pretty hard to get a hold of (let alone carry), summer temperatures regularly pass 30 degrees and you’re all cramped in like sardines can be a pretty bad idea—even for the hardcore.

Remember you are going to participate in a Festival with 22,000 people in summer in a super crowded street, and it will get super intense, so feeling too drunk is not our recommendation at all.

The Ultimate After-Party: Ending Your La Tomatina Experience on a High Note

The best thing you can do after La Tomatina is go back to our HQ and have some food and some drinks to recover while we party until we go back to Valencia meeting point, once at your accommodation have a proper shower and make a Spanish siesta as a good tradition and recover energy for one of the wildest party nights of your life.

La Tomatina After Party happens at night the same day as La Tomatina, in a club near Valencia, (the last 8 years’ location was revealed just a few days before).

This is the time to let your party animal fly in all its glory, in one of the wildest parties ever to end this awesome day of La Tomatina

It would be awesome to have you on board for this incredible experience that is La Tomatina Festival.

We have created after the experience of so many years with so much love and passion the perfect packages so you can have the time of your life at La Tomatina and enjoy to the core this adventure.

Will you give us the pleasure of making you extremely happy? We love creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences for someone like you and truly experience, something that will stick to your heart for the rest of your life.

We wish you the best and we hope to meet you in person and have a blast all together.
