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.
