“Yelapa was magical, unique and relaxing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

Staying at the Casa Manta Ray/Miramar was an excellent location to watch the fishing marina and all the action of local fisherman. The proximity to town made it easy to buy food, eat out, and get a feel for this fishing village. The room offered wonderful views of the bay and the sky. The owners were so helpful and there if you needed them but never in the way. The beach was like any beach, sand, drink, sun, but a river runs through it! Cool!
Our favorite aspect was the feeling of truly getting away from our world. We loved the slow pace and remote feel.

Yelapa, Mexico is the most enchanting and unforgetable village. Not only did we totally relax in a beautiful authentic house we made friends for a lifetime. We were embraced by Fernando and Ruddy who made us feel like family. They checked on us numerous times daily to ensure that all our needs were met. They offered their excellent boating trips to the islands and Chimo for breathtaking views of the island and delicious food. They went out of their way daily to make us feel so special. Our breathtaking mornings and evenings on our balcony were our favorite parts of our day. Chimo has to be the favorite place to eat. The Oasis was a great place to hang out on the beach where yet again, Fernando met us and treated us to Tequilla tasting. We love Yelapa but we love you Fernando and Ruddy for sharing your culture, your home and your hearts with us. We look forward to many trips back to our friends in Yelapa! Kenya, your parents were so kind and we loved meeting them and look forward to meeting you. Thanks for all you do to make Fernando so happy and just glow when he speaks of you. It's true love and that's what we feel when we visit your home! Te amo, Shawn and Jona

If you are considering visiting Mexico, I would highly recommend a stay in Yelapa! A visit to Yelapa truly gives you a glimpse into the authentic side of Mexico. After flying in and out of Puerto Vallarta, I can say that I made a great choice in not staying there. Yelapa is a place to get away from it all and soak in all that Mexico is!
We stayed at Casa Palmita from 11/22-11/26. Fernando and Kendra were the best hosts we could ask for! They took care of everything for us- including booking our excursions, restaurant suggestions and pointing us in the right direction when we wandered around, seemingly lost in town. They really went above and beyond and acted more as a complete concierge service than simple hosts! For this, we are very grateful.
The Casa was beautiful! There are a few different areas to stay while in Yelapa, but I believe that Casa Palmita is the best situated as far as accommodation. We were within a short walk to the main beach and town. This made things much easier for trips to the grocery store, meals out, etc. The house had everything we needed, which is always a plus.
Our favorite memories were breakfasts on our patio overlooking the water and watching as the town came to life! We can't wait to go back!

Jungle Casa is just that. A short, but fairly steep hike up to the jungle gets you away from the noisy nightlife. A dehumidifier is in the casa which is a great amenity! Very comfortable and well stocked with dishes, etc. I can't say enough about proprietors Kendra and Fernando Garcia. They are wonderful hosts and wish to make your stay perfect! They are the BEST!
