Yelapa is the perfect place to relax by the ocean and soak up some sun… exactly what we were looking for to get away from our eternal Spring rain. Very rustic, get-away-from-it-all Mexcio at its most charming.
And Manta Rey (the house we rented) is located in a perfect spot on the ocean overlooking the activity in the bay. The house has everything you need. Very well stocked, even had a half bottle of tequila and limes! Lots of hot water and a great deck with lounge chairs and hammock. The local restaurants are quaint, but have surprisingly good food. The owners, Fernando and Kendra provide great recommendations for eating and activities. And Fernando and his brother are available for fishing or snorkeling expeditions (we caught ahi and were invited to Kendra and Feranando’s to feast on it that evening). Manta Rey is perfect for a couple, but their other places are larger. The Jungle House is up a pretty steep hill, so get someone to help if you have much luggage.
We give 2 thumbs up to the hike to the large waterfall (Beautiful pool to swim in and nobody else around.) as well as fishing and snorkeling. We spent a lot of time on the deck - one of the best spots we found anywhere.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At MiraMar we offer great service including top rated houses and activities as well as event planning. As one of the founding families, we know what Yelapa has to offer and we have made our services a step above the rest. We aren't a resort. Yelapa is remote, quaint, charming. Today there are still no roads into town, and the only way to get here is by boat. If adventure travel is your thing, come escape with us. ... more less
