Our first trip to Yelapa was fabulous. Casa pericos is not only a beautiful place to stay, but its also connected to wonderful local support. The village is filled with patrons who are thankful to have visitors contributing to the local community. They warmly welcomed us to a local quincinera, they shared food with us and showed us the true spirit of Mexico. Casa pericos in particular has a supportive crew of locals and patrons that made our time truly memorable. We cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: There is no bad room in this place! Theyre all amazing.

We visited Yelapa after our wedding in Puerto Vallarta last month. After 1 full week of family and friends we were ready for our honeymoon and some much needed relaxation time and Casa Pericos delivered! First off the owner Shane and concierge Carolyn were extremely professional and accommodating. Carolyn had connections to any activity, food, drink, and service that was offered in Yelapa and she was able to hook us up with whatever we wanted including Horseback riding, massage, Yoga, fishing, restaurants, ect. The personal chefs that she helped us book were amazing and very affordable. The place was always clean and comfortable. We stayed in the Penthouse and WOW! The architecture and interior/exterior design of this place will inspire you. It was unlike anywhere that we have ever stayed and it's very hard to come back to our house that does not have open walls like the Palapa does. When we had to leave my wife told me, with tears streaming down her face, that I had done a great job picking or honeymoon spot. Every morning that we woke up in Casa Pericos we had a smile on our faces! Thank you Carolyn and Shane for making our honeymoon a dream come true!

Oh BTW now we do understand that it is better to have a Palapa in Yelapa then a condo in Redondo!

My husband and I spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon in Puerta Vallarta and the last 3 days in Yelapa at Casa Pericos and we are sure glad that we ended our honeymoon at this romantic, unique spot. We were drawn to Yelapa because it's remote, village charm and it was a boat ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I then was sold on Casa Pericos because of the outstanding customer service while asking questions prior to booking the room. Shane (one of the owners) called to answer all our questions after I filled out an email questionnaire. He put me in touch with the concierge, Carolyn, and she quickly emailed me to see if we wanted to have the fridge stocked and gave us a complete list of everything we needed to know about traveling from the States to Yelapa.

Once we arrived, Reeana the other concierge met us at the water taxi and helped us get settled in to our room. She helped us navigate the village of Yelapa, and set up a mule trip to see the waterfalls up the river. She even special ordered Mexican Wedding Cookies and cinnamon rolls from the local bakery.

The room was amazing and had a great view of the ocean! We kayaked, hiked to the town waterfall, ate at Domingo's on the beach and had dinner at Passionflower Gardens with some local folks.

Casa Pericos was the most unique and special place I have ever stayed. It was the perfect mix of adventure and charm that we wanted for our honeymoon.

Room Tip: We stayed in the lowest level room Cielo Tranquilo and it was wonderful. I was worried that since it...

We just returned from a wonderful and relaxing stay at Casa Pericos and loved every minute of it. It is definitely a unique and special place and I can’t recommend it enough for anyone planning a visit to Yelapa. The pictures don’t do it justice. We stayed in the Penthouse but saw the other units and they were equally as nice but just not as large. We also appreciated having access to Reanna/Carolyn as local experts and concierge. Location is perfect, being outside of and away from the noise of the pueblo and perfectly sited for views, but not such an uphill hike as to make it difficult to get to town or main beach when needed. I’m not sure how trip advisor calculates that it is 5+km from “town”, but it is definitely not. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are lucky enough to make the trip.

Well, to start, we are 5 star resort people. We were invited to tag along with two of the nicest people we have come to know. We, on our own would never travel to stay at a place such as Casa Pericos. With that said, we have NO regrets. The trip was wonderful and we would recommend it to everyone that wants to have a relaxing, adventurous trip. The casa it self is a gem in the middle of a community of yesterday. With no roads, and only foot paths , walk ways or boats, your travels are full of adventure. I give the casa a 5 star. We had everything we needed and more. Reeanne was willing and ready to fill any of our extra desires, such as fresh fish delivered and arranging tours and such for us. Delma and Conejo kept our casa clean and well stocked. They were only a call away if we needed anything else. Shane, the owner, was such a welcoming person. He happened to be at the casa and came down to the beach to meet us and welcome each of us personally.
Tips while staying. We are there September 21 to 27. Our friends are still there.It is very humid, so dress light. Cotton is the best. My husband said the shirts he wears in Cancun are too hot and heavy to wear in Yelapa. Ladies, just go down to the beach, in Yelapa, and buy a cotton dress, you'll be glad you did. Take a water bottle with you, they provide fresh RO water. We found water shoes and sandal's to be all we needed for foot wear. Get to know the people, they are very welcoming. If you go in the rainy season, in Mexico, snorkelling will not be what you expect. The water will have run off in it from the mountains and it will be cloudy. Yet the water is warm and at times during the day it does clear up and swimming is welcoming. So be open minded and embrace the culture and have to remember for a life time.

Room Tip: The four of us stayed in the, romantica suite. A perfect suite for four people.

Casa Pericos is a special place for us. The first time I went I didn't know what to expect...because it was my 40th birthday surprise destination. When I arrived in Yelapa, leaving behind to uber touristic Puerto Vallarta 45 minutes by small boat behind me, I knew I was going to like it.
After coming back for the third time in a row, we are already making plans to come a 4th time.
Casa Pericos is perfect for couples, friends, and even family. It offers the best, at a reasonable price what Yelapa has to offer. Being off the beaten path, it can be very hard for Casas in such a remote place to sustain the long raining season, the harsh jungle and the ocean air hammering the openness of the house. But the owners of Casa Pericos are paying attention to every little details you can imagine. I am a perfectionist, and I can assure everyone reading this review that everything is perfect, thoughtfully placed, arranged, decorated with luxury in mind for the up most comfort.
The care takers of the Casa are fantastic. The owners hire local staff to keep the local community prosperous, and themselves are probably the sweetest and most wonderful people in the village.
Casa Pericos is a no brainier. You will get so much more then what you can imagine.

Fall asleep with the sound of the waves, wake up with amazing sunsets without having to get out of bed or to the sound of local parrots.

They also offer concierge service proposing to stock your fridge with local foods, specialties made by villagers (which are so amazing!), tequila, lemons waiting in your fully equipped kitchen.
Concierge Carolyn and Reeana also suggests arranging different activities, including yoga, fishing with great locals to more magical places in the surroundings.

Walking into Casa Pericos's grounds, is like entering a garden of Eden. Stepping outside of Casa Pericos into the wilderness, rusticity of Yelapa with its jungle, streams, water falls and paths is a pleasure, especially knowing that you will have comfort, impeccable cleanliness and luxury waiting for you back at Casa Pericos.

Thank you Casa Pericos for allowing us to come back again and again, and for giving us the opportunity to taste a piece of this heaven.

We just spent two days in a village of indigenous fisher people in the small village of Yelapa on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The luxury barefoot hotel Casa Pericos was very comfortable, affordable, and well appointed.

The concierge, Reeana, made sure of our every need and comfort. She made suggestions that were clear and simple. We only had one full day and she made sure we saw the high spots of the village: the village church, the waterfall and the beach.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the top floor-worth every penny for the views and decor.
