Yelapa Jalisco México cascada, iglesia, callejones y playas /…

Yelapa Jalisco México cascada, iglesia, callejones y playas / waterfall,…

Yelapa (read more: https://pvmx.net/YelapaENG) is for those who enjoy finding hidden places or hideaways to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern civilization. Undoubtedly the place to look for these in the Banderas Bay area is to look south, there are a number of beautiful beaches, especially those that can only be reached by sea, among these Yelapa.

Yelapa is a fabulous little beach and town, so isolated that you feel as if you were on a tropical island in the South Pacific, for a long time even cellphones didn’t work here and that was wonderful. 30-45 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta by sea, between the jungle and the waters of the Bay of Banderas and the small Yelapa bay.

Where is Yelapa?

Yelapa is in the southern zone of the Banderas Bay, between Majahuitas Beach and Pizota (further west). It is about 20-30 minutes by water taxi (panga) from Boca de Tomatlan. You can only arrive by sea.

How to get to Yelapa from Puerto Vallarta

To get to the place there is only one way, by sea, you can take a boat from the Los Muertos Beach Pier (50-60 minutes), or travel by land in a bus (orange and while, from the corner of Basilio Badillo and Constitución in Puerto Vallarta’s romantic zone) passing Mismaloya until you reach Boca de Tomatlan, the final destination of the public bus. From there take a water taxi, or panga, as they call them locally, the trip by sea takes about 30 minutes.

It is advisable to get to Playa Yelapa from Boca de Tomatlan, there are two docks to disembark in Yelapa Cabo Corrientes, one on the main beach by the side of Lagunita Yelapa Hotel and another in the town of Yelapa which is on the west side of the small Yelapa Bay.

Yelapa – averigua más en https://pvmx.net/YelapaESP – es para aquellos que disfrutan de pasear y buscar lugares recónditos o escondites para alejarse del bullicio y la superficialidad de la civilización moderna. Sin duda el lugar en la bahía de banderas para esto es ir hacia el sur, donde hay una serie de bellas playas, en especial a las que sólo se puede llegar por mar, entre éstas Yelapa, un secreto a voces que ha reunido a muchos artistas y extranjeros que buscan lo natural y lo real.

Yelapa Jalisco es un lugar fabuloso, tan aislado que crees estar en una isla tropical del Pacífico Sur, por mucho tiempo no había siquiera servicio celular y permitía un aislamiento total, cosa que es un lujo hoy en día. A 40 minutos al sur de Puerto Vallarta por mar, entre la jungla y las aguas de la Bahía de Banderas.

Dónde está Yelapa México

Si ven el inicio del video, notarán que Yelapa está en la zona sur de la Bahía de Banderas, se encuentra entre Playa Majahuitas y Pizota (más al oeste). Está a unos 30 minutos en taxi acuático (panga) de Boca de Tomatlán. Sólo se puede llegar por mar a este pueblo y playa.

¿Cómo llegar a Yelapa desde Puerto Vallarta?

Para llegar al lugar sólo hay una manera, por mar, pueden tomar una lancha desde el Muelle de Playa Los Muertos (45 minutos), o viajar por tierra pasando Mismaloya hasta llegar a Boca de Tomatlán y desde ahí tomar un taxi acuático, o panga, como los llaman localmente, el viaje por mar toma unos 30 minutos.

Lo recomendable es llegar a Playa Yelapa desde Boca de Tomatlán, hay dos muelles para desembarcar en Yelapa Cabo Corrientes, uno en la playa principal por el lado de Lagunita Yelapa Hotel y otro en el pueblo de Yelapa que está en la zona oeste de la pequeña bahía de Yelapa.
