“My favorite hideaway”
Reviewed April 26, 2010

This was our second visit to Yelapa within a year and we had to return to Casa Pericos. The house is beautiful and the view from my favorite chair (on the balcony) is breathtaking. We spent many hours watching for dolphin and once spotted a whale from the house. If you are open to living in the outdoors while staying indoors this is the place for you. It's a good 10 minute walk into town - bring your flashlight at night. The kids could kayak from the house and body surf at Isabella's beach and plenty of snorkeling spots.

Casa Pericos in Yelapa is a fast safe speedboat ride from the pier in old town Puerta Vallarta. Just get on the water taxi with Yelapa printed on the side. Its only $10 and everyone is so nice. Pack light, just beach wear and grab some grocerys in P.V and bring them on the boat. Fill up your modern kitchen when you arrive then go out on the sea kayacs that are free for your stay. You can see the giant beach from your oversize balcony, it's a fun walk along the bay ito own. Call up the " donkey taxi " for a real kick .. You must make this casa # 1 on your vacation trips. The owner & staff are the best I have ever seen. Take Yoga next door or the spa and a 5 star hotel for drinks are steeps away.

We arrived in Yelapa, Mexico via watertaxi from Puerto Vallarta expecting a quiet, little fishing village. What we found was that and more. Carolyn greeted us at Playa Isabel, which was adjacent to our villa, Casa Pericos. Carolyn had contracted with a local to help us with our luggage. The villa was very clean and had everything you could want, fully equipped kitchen, beautiful view of the Yelapa beach & bay and a short walk to restaurants, grocery stores and the beach. Yelapa beach had its own bars and restaurants as well as parasailing. One day we took a watertaxi to the Meriatas' islands. On the 45 minute trip to the islands, we viewed a group of whales. I've never seen such clear, blue water that was on these islands. One day we rented horses to go up to the waterfall outside of Yelapa. First time for me to be on a horse. That was another great adventure in itself.

The house has no beach and is far from the beach! The walk to a beach is about a mile: on a path along the shoreline over the rocks, through the streams and coastline forest to the town, then a skiff awaited us to help us cross the river to the beach (for 10 pesos and operational until 2pm, thereafter, a bridge will get you across, add another 1/2 mile to your journey). The rain did not start until after 2pm, and when it rained daily, it pounded warm rain, flooding the streams and the river, walking back was tedious and dangerous. Another option was hiring a motorized skiff from the beach (for a small fee) to carry you back through the rain to a rocky shoreline area near the house.

This house is not for the weak of limb or heart. A recent change in management led to some confusion in the booking process. Yelapa had no cars, no computers service available, we had cell or land line service and and no neighbors nearby. Of course sounds like a getaway from reality , and it is - but being truly incommunicado I had issues with safety isolated at the house, should I need it (reality) . Although we had no incident, we heard from locals of incidents with tourists walking the coastline back to their houses. As the house has an open format, exposed to the mountain in back, and really a balcony over the water in front, critters creeped, crawled and flew into our #2 unit. Advisement of scorpion vigilance made it difficult to fully relax (although we never saw one!). When the rains blew in, some furniture was soaked - including our beds until we moved them. Nothing ever dried while I was there due to the high and constant humidity, I went home with a suitcase of wet things. And my personal pet peeve, the safe is not safe (as it is lightweight and not bolted down.

That being said, the house is beautiful. Low cost dining is available! We had fabulous fish dinners and ceviches for lunch, both on the beach and at Pollo Bollo and Las Brisas in town (it being low season, only two restaurants alternated being open in town - there was no nightlife). The small waterfall is worth the hike - just lovely. The pie ladies sell their homemade goods on the beach and the pies are delicious. The eternity pool at La Lagunita is soothing and fresh watered. A visit to UNESCO's Isla Marietas was fabulous for snorkeling and views. We are fluent in Spanish, and found the people were friendly and helpful.

My advice is not to go in the rainy season ... and know what you are getting into.

I stayed for 3 nights in the slow season of Sept with my boyfriend. We were greeted warmly! We had the most magical time there! Breathtaking view, beautiful weather, and surreal snorkeling! Tips: bring bug spray...lots, shop the local "grocery store" and cook in your kitchen in the room, go to bed when the sun sets and get up when the sun rises, look up to the beautiful jungle when you are washing your hair in the shower! Make an excellent choice and go here! Its a bit of a walk to get to the main beach and you must cross a small river to do so. Bring flash lights, be friendly and attempt to speak Spanish! Such a magical place!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Casa Pericos for three nights. What a beautiful house! I took a hundred pictures but none really did justice. Imagine falling to sleep to waves each night and waking up to an unobstructed view of the cove. I'm not talking about an unobstructed-big-window-view either--I mean that the entire suite is a balcony. An open-air, covered balcony. We surprisingly didn't have any problems with mosquitos, but that may have been because we went in the dry season. (Not sure how well things would have worked had there been a hard rain...) Days were hot, but with the fans on and a little portable fan that Brad provided, we slept well. This would be a great house to rent out with a bunch of friends, but my boy and I had a great time renting just the first floor too. Yelapa is not a crazy party town, but it is great if what you're looking for is a few days of total relaxation. To be fair, we were there in the off season and there is supposed to be more going on at different times of the year--regardless, even when it's "happening," I'm sure it would still be a wonderfully far reach from PV.

Yelapa is truly an un-touched paradise, full of unexpectedness and adventure. We stayed at Casa Pericos, located on the point, and corresponded with Brad (the yelapa pelapa man!). We weren't sure what to expect, and then we pulled up on the boat and were stunned. Casa pericos is a beautfiul open-concept pelapa, gorgeously decorated, with a full-kitchen...and most importantly a coffee-maker (yippee!)

The best part of Casa Pericos is that it is open-concept which lets you wake up to the rythmic sounds of the ocean in the front and the purifying noises of the jungle behind you. It wasn't rare to see a gorgeous sting ray jump from the ocean while eating dinner or a friendly crab stroll by. We loved it so much that we are thinking of returning with an even larger group of friends to share the entire 3 floors.

The people from Yelapa were incredibly friendly, showing us the octopuses they caught in the late afternoon. The dogs in yelapa were also especially kind. Charlie, a know-it-all basset hound toured us around the village and to the main beach.

If you are looking for tranquility, nature, beauty and a little bit of adventure, Yelapa, and Casa Pericos is perfect!

  • Liked — Beautifully decorated and open-concept
  • Disliked — Hard to sleep the first night, because we weren't used to the noises. But second night was amazing!
