Experience Yelapa, Mexico!

I have been going to Yelapa for over 25 years, before electricity and phones. This quaint, coastal, fishing village is accessible only by boat and has a small local Mexican population, but swells in the winter with expats many of whom are creative, artistic, yoga enthusiasts, as well as tourists looking to explore this jungle paradise.

With the advent of electricity only 10 years ago Yelapa has become a tourist destination where the old and the new co-exist side by side.

Come and enjoy this slow pace while hiking, swimming, horseback riding, snorkeling, fishing, dancing, taking a local herb walk, savoring the many delicious restaurants both in the village and on the beach.

Arrive by panga and like most visitors – you’ll never want to leave.

Tours are available from November-April.

If you are interested in one during the off months from May-October – contact me at donnawolper@hotmail.com for availability.
