Yelapa

Getting to Yelapa is, in itself, a two-hour adventure, as you take a water taxi south from Puerto Vallarta to a traditional village that still has the small fishing village feel it had when Hollywood discovered the hideaway years ago.

It is the perfect place to lose yourself in the rainforest, wade through rivers, take a long walk in the village until you reach a refreshing 50-meter waterfall, or go swimming, fishing, or scuba diving in its gentle water. Relax on the beach chairs that line the shore in front of restaurants where you can purchase Mexican food, fresh fish, and lobster. You may like this beach so much that you feel tempted to spend the night!
