Upon arriving via water taxi, the first thing most people notice are the surrounding Blowfish curiously popping their heads up around the dock. 

yelapa waterfall - mexico By far the most popular neighboring village of Puerto Vallarta, Yelapa remains a quiet, secluded village that could have existed exactly like this 100 years ago.  Walking the paths to the village's waterfalls, you will see wash basins filled with clothes of the locals, sitting in the freshwater streams.  Chickens and donkeys walking aimlessly.  Dog's too relaxed to lift their head as you walk by. 

Water taxi's to Yelapa can be booked from Los Muertos Beach in Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica, or from the beautiful Boca de Tomatlan.  Seeing Yelapa is an absolute must for Puerto Vallarta vacationers.  The waterfalls and streams present great photography opportunities, children enjoy watching the donkeys and sea life or playing on the beach.  Horseback rides are available to the cascading waterfalls, and lodging is available at the Hotel Lagunita for overnight visits.  They can be emailed for accommodation rates and availability at

The Yelapa locals are friendly and always happy to offer directions for which "path" to take where.  The intimate restaurants are unique and offer very traditional Mexican food on secluded patios beneath umbrellas and surrounded by jungle foliage.
