Today we traveled to Yelapa. It’s 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, on a water taxi from Los Muertos Pier in south Puerto Vallarta. Round-trip cost less than $25. We arrived at a nearly empty, pristine beach. The water was beautiful and cool. There was a restaurant or two nearby, where we had great lunches — if we wanted, they’d bring our drinks out to the chaises they provided for all-day use. It was fabulous.
A lady sells pie on the beach for 30 pesos. Agostina’s lovely and she makes good pie. We tried coconut, apple, chocolate, & pecan.
You can watch the taxis come in every hour or so. Everything is delivered by water taxi, even the beer. Then a guy wheelbarrows it up to his restaurant.
There are several beach dogs. I woke up from a nap to find this one had burrowed under my chaise, taking a break from the heat. He was a doll.
Someday, I will come back a spend a whole week here. It’s one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever visited.
A whole set, here:
