A beautiful, contemporary apartment overlooking the water in Yelapa with Air Conditioned. Centrally located close to the pier and the center of the village. The location is closed to the restaurants, grocery stores, 7 min from the waterfall, beach inmediately below.
“Our stay at casa yolanda really was a wonderful experience! The views were so beautiful. It was such a comfortable place to hang out and have a morning coffee while staring at the gorgeous ocean. It was very clean and the bed was so comfortable! We stayed for two nights and wish we were staying for two more. The pace of yelapa is slow (which you learn to love) but Orestes was very quick at responding if we needed anything! Highly suggest walking to the upper waterfall, there is a map on how to get there. And go early to miss the crowds, were we lucky enough to have the waterfall to ourselves. I highly recommend casa Yolanda and wouldn’t hesitate booking again if we ever find ourselves back in Yelapa!”
Nestled in the heart of Yelapa, this unique apartment has all the comforts of home including hot water, a balcony with a view of the marina, a short walk to the beach and plenty of activities nearby.
“This is a nice apartment located right at the entrance to the village on the trail from the beach. We loved the ocean view and breeze, the comfy couch and clean modern space. We especially loved how responsive socorro was. Anytime we had a question or request soccorro was very quick to reply and made sure we had everything we needed. She is a great host. If you stay here make sure you have dinner at los abuelos restaurant which is just steps away. Their food is amazing!”
Yelapa is a vacationer’s hideaway that can only be reached by boat. Today it remains an escape from the norm and an opportunity for authentic adventure travel to a naturally beautiful Mexican village. Most famous for its waterfalls and beach the cobblestone paths, jungle fauna, and quaint restaurants and stores further add to Yelapa's charm. High season: Nov - April when weather is perfect. Border months: Oct and May. Low season: June - Sept when the rains come and it's tropical again.
“Yelapa is a wonderful little town, and I can't imagine a better place to stay than MiraMar. Each of the accommodations at MIraMar is unique in its own way. We stayed in Casa Manta Ray, which is on the lowest level immediately overlooking the beach. It easily accommodated three of us. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The bed and sofa bed were both extremely comfortable. The bath was one of the best designed and most beautiful spaces we've ever used. The expansive private patio overlooked the beach and town pier. We spent countless hours on the patio watching the rhythm of the town--people coming and going by boat, the dogs playing on the beach, the waves washing over the shore. Thoughtful and colorful touches were scattered throughout the interior. Beautifully scripted notes are also placed around the apartment to provide helpful information. Common spaces at MiraMar are well positioned and very useful. The expansive upper terrace has a large open kitchen and grill. Refreshments (beer, wine, soda and spirits) are available on the honor system. The small seashore area immediately below MiraMar is well tended by staff and offers what amounts to virtually a small private intimate beach area with its own umbrellas and lounge chairs. MiraMar also offers a wide variety of excursions to nearby sites of interest, all of which look extremely enticing. We chose a five-hour excursion to the Islas Marietas which included beach visits and snorkeling opportunities as well as a meal of ceviche, guacamole and beer. Speak to Wim, at the booth across from MiraMar, for more detailed descriptions of available excursions. Wim is also an incredible resource for other information about the village! The village itself has much to offer. Fine little family-run restaurants abound. Kendra has prepared a list of her and Fernando's recommendations. Our two favorites were Pollo Bollo and the nearby Los Abuelos, which has wonderful tacos filled with various types of seafood. Among other activities worth pursuing are several local walks (to the waterfall; to Playa Isabel and Verana; and along the Tuito River), a visit to the local museum (not to be overlooked), and a trip to the Vallarta Botanical Garden. The botanical garden can be reached by a short boat ride to Boca de Tomatlan and then bus or taxi to the garden. The garden is worth a good two to four hours of time before returning to Yelapa by the same means of transport. We have stayed at more than 50 Airbnbs throughout Europe, Asia and North America, and this is perhaps the finest!”
