We wanted to do a day trip and thought Yelapa was a nice quite place to go due to the photos . We took a water taxi and the views was nice as we left PV . Once we got there the disappointments set in...More
We visited Yelapa for 1 day.

When they drop you off at the...More
What a reasonably priced day trip.
Bought a sea taxi return ticket to Yelapa. Fun bouncy trip over and on approach I was sure we was entering Jurassic park. After arrival and the initial enslaught of beach traders showing you their offerings you discover a...More
Lovers of waterfalls and off the beaten trail adventures have two distinct options to enjoy while in Yelapa. Within the village itself, a 5 minute walk up a gentle trail leads to a very high falls with a lovely shaded large pool at it's bottom,...More
Would highly recommend visiting the waterfall - it's beautiful. But the walk through the tiny, old town of Yelapa is an experience in itself. It's touristy but really not - they have bars and people selling stuff just like other main ports, but not nearly...More
It is about an 8 mile hike round trip to get to the waterfalls, but the hike is fairly flat and easy walking. There are several shallow river crossings so I recommend water shoes, or be prepared to take your shoes off a couple times....More
Ok, so it’s not Niagra Falls....more like Yelapa drip...but it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! We went in the dry season so there wasn’t much water but we took a dip in the pool at the bottom and enjoyed talking to the locals there. They showed us videos...More
Taking a water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan to Yelapa is the easiest thing ever. The pangas, or rustic water taxis is only $180.00 pesos round trip and its fun, quick and safe. Though many say its an hour panga drive to Yelapa, I timed...More
It was not what I expected; I thought we were gonna be walking through waterfall forest like the one in Jamaica, but it turned out to be just walking up a steep trail to a relevantly small waterfall spot to swim and relax in a...More
The hike to the falls is not described very accurately, so we were unprepared for crossing two streams, and about 45 minutes worth of rock scramble. Also, the distance is much longer than the popular town map indicates, which made a big difference for my...More
Yes, you can get a water taxi in P.V. or in Boca Corrientes. We were on the southern side of P.V. so we took the white bus with orange trim 50 cents a person. It took us to the end of the line which is Boca. From there... More
Yes, you can get a water taxi in P.V. or in Boca Corrientes. We were on the southern side of P.V. so we took the white bus with orange trim 50 cents a person. It took us to the end of the line which is Boca. From there you walk down the hill and veer to the right to the pier. They have them coming & going on the half hour. The panga was $10 pp round trip. There are 6 different beaches you can visit. You can also grab the white bus with green trim (?) and go to the Vallart Botanical Gardens which is supposed to be beautiful!! We will do that next time!!
