Yelapa 2009

It was everything I thought it would be and then some. It was more like a picture from a South Sea Island than traditional Mexico. Four nights and five days in the tiny community of Yelapa. No cars, buses and trucks. Mostly foot traffic and a few Burros for the tourists to get around in a hurry, sort of. The Burros where also used for transporting goods and services around town and up river. Boats also played a major role in delivering everything from food, water and people to Yelapa. They would land right on the beach and then turn around and head off again. Future posts will give a detailed look at each day that we spent in this charming little town just 45 minutes from hectic Puerto Vallarta.


  1. I can't believe you were in/on Yelapa!!! David and I went there on our honeymoon. Haven't we ever told you our Yelapa story? It's a whopper.

    Your blog looks great!

  2. Don't think I heard about that. I had wanted to go there for years and finally made it last January. Still a wonderful place. - Earle
