I wish El Manguito were closer in. Owner Angelica has a long established, respected restaurant up river. From the pueblo is about a 15 minute walk to the bridge. Cross the river to the other side and turn right. A short two minute walk and you will find a laid back place with well prepared meals and cold beer. Now open for high season!

Manguitos was always open, even during the slow summer season of 2012 I was visiting Yelapa. The owners are very friendly and speak English well. They have the best chili rellenos I have ever had and you can't go wrong with anything you order.The margaritas are wonderful and very potent.

Good basic mexican food that hits the spot. Angelica has other food at times not on the menu that is available. They do have a few specialties and recommend langostino, it is not shrimp or lobster, they get it from the river. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's about 1/4 mile hike from beach but nice way to see another part of the pueblo.

While this was a hike to get to, it was well worth the trip. I had great food in Yelapa in general, but this was the best meal. Kudos to the chef--everything we ordered was fresh and perfectly prepared.

You could easily walk by this wonderful restaurant and never know what you'd missed. Louis makes an outstanding Margarita (ask for his "special") and the order the shrimp stuffed avocado (we share an order). Bon Appetit!
