Day 12 - Day Trip to Yelapa

Yelapa. Half the fun is getting there! We opted to take the ever ‘entertaining’ public bus (7 pesos one way) to Boca de Tomatlán, walk down into the town and hail a water taxi (140 pesos return).

A half hour ride in the crowded water taxi brings us to the dock of Yelapa. A short walk to a waterfall directly behind the village, a fantastic lunch at a waterfront village restaurant, a walk through the very photographic and quaint village, down to the beach, a short walk (knee-deep) across the fast-flowing river to the beach-front palapas, a piece of delicious coconut pie from the Yelapa Pie Lady and then a short stroll to a pier opposite the town for the water-taxi ride back to Boca and a bus back to Puerto Vallarta. A perfect day.

Much more on the charming village of Yelapa to come in a future post.

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
