Nestled in the southernmost cove of the Bay of Banderas is Yelapa, Jalisco, Mexico. Most people get here by a ponga (water taxi) or come as part of a group tour. the group tours usually depart by boat at the port of Vallarta across from the Gallerias Mall. Water taxis to Yelapa depart daily from various locations in the Puerto Vallarta. The easiest and most known location is the pier in Los Muertos Beach. Yelapa’s tranquillity is ideal for those looking for that entirely laid-back vacation. The beach is covered in a blanket of golden sand, and is a superb place to swim, snorkel, or parasail. If you are not that energetic you can just relax in one of the numerous beach chairs, soak up the sun, and enjoy a cold drink from the beach front restaurants and taverns. The pueblo of Yelapa brings you back in time to what Puerto Vallarta might have been many years ago with traditional Mexican homes, narrow cobble-stone streets, and backyard farms and pastures. There are two waterfalls that can be reached by hiking, horseback, or a combination of both. Both water falls have a swimming hole that has fresh cool water to cool you down after a long hike. If you get a chance to have an overnight stay in Yelapa, you’ll get an opportunity to star-gaze and literally disconnect from the world.
