Casa Bahia Bonita is located right on the beach in the secluded tropical destination of Yelapa. It offers oceanfront studios, tropical gardens and an on-site tour desk. The view was AMAZING, the hotel is right by the bay, only a min away from the sea. The place is perfect if you want to get away from people to rest, work or just disconnect for a while. The hosts were amazing, as well as the staff. The interior of the room was also perfectly functioning. No complaints. Great sunset views!
Located in Yelapa, just 328 feet from Yelapa, Casa Vista Magica features beachfront accommodations with a terrace and free WiFi. The property has river and sea views. Truly magical views ! Entire stay was super relaxing.Most comfy beds and restfull sleep ever. Will return to stay longer next time.
Located in the isolated town of Yelapa on Bahia Banderas Bay, Casas Garcia offers fully equipped apartments with a private beach area. The property features free Wi-Fi. The views are magnificent, and it’s so close to the beach! The staff was very helpful.
Boasting lake views, Casa Berita features accommodations with a private beach area and a patio, around 262 feet from Yelapa. Featuring river and sea views, this holiday home also includes free WiFi. Berita was awesome! She lives a few doors down and so nice and willing to help out. The condo was very nice, open to the sea and had a typical beach feel. There is jugged water and an adequate kitchen but with all the great places to eat a short walk away we did not cook at all. The location is great - right on the beach rocks and exactly in between the town (with all the restaurants and shops) and the sandy beach with the palapa restaurants (open until 6pm in April) and lots of umbrellas and loungers.
Great small seaside town only accessible by small boat with some great restaurants and perfect to come for 10 to 14 days and bring a few books to read to relax by the sea. Its fun watching the Pelicans fish in the waters by our beach. There you can snorkel alongside the rocks on either side of the cove and see fish or even the odd swimming iguanas. Its a walking town with some small hills. Lots 4 wheel small ATV are now the family car and they have the pack mules (that are still used to move items). Quite often at day or night you will have people riding on mule/horse pass you, so watch where you step. Though they have a regular group of people who clean up the street pretty good that way, so it not a real issue. People are friendly and helpful and felt very safe in town.I was travelling with wife and teenage daughter.
Yelapa is a beautiful place that resides on a cove about a 45-minute boat ride from Puerto Vallarta. It's very small in that you can walk from one side of the cove to the other in under 45 minutes. There are multiple waterfall hikes, great local restaurants with freshly caught fish, a beautiful calm beach area for relaxing and swimming. Overall a great place to visit.
Yelapa is a wonderful small town with a lot of charm, great beach, and friendly atmosphere. It's a simple place, but if you like local experience and physical beauty, this is the spot you want to go to.
The bay is pretty, but the water is full of docked fisherman boats running on diesel and the sand rocky. Restaurants on the beach close at 5pm so unless you're staying at hotel Lagunita, there's no place to have a drink and enjoy the sunset.
Don't come here if you can't set aside your expectations. It's not PV and lets hope it never is. Pure, beautiful, simple beach living at its best. Don't expect the boats to run according to what they tell you at the "office" in PV. They made me rush to get to the pier 15 minutes earlier than my departure and then I sat around waiting for 45 min or so. The return trip was the same. No one knew what was going on. I waited at the piercer a good hour and others (who got on on the beach) did the same. There's still a mentality in Yelapa that foreigners equal money and not much else--so don't make big plans for the day you leave because time does not exist there as it does in the rest of Mexico.
It would be a shame for people traveling to Puerto Vallarta for the first time to not include Yelapa. It has such character and charm and gives you the feeling of what it would have been like to live here 40 years ago. It is a special place and one that you will travel to over and over again.
