What a reasonably priced day trip. Bought a sea taxi return ticket to Yelapa. Fun bouncy trip over and on approach I was sure we was entering Jurassic park. After arrival and the initial enslaught of beach traders showing you their offerings you discover a...More

Lovers of waterfalls and off the beaten trail adventures have two distinct options to enjoy while in Yelapa. Within the village itself, a 5 minute walk up a gentle trail leads to a very high falls with a lovely shaded large pool at it's bottom,...More

Would highly recommend visiting the waterfall - it's beautiful. But the walk through the tiny, old town of Yelapa is an experience in itself. It's touristy but really not - they have bars and people selling stuff just like other main ports, but not nearly...More

It is about an 8 mile hike round trip to get to the waterfalls, but the hike is fairly flat and easy walking. There are several shallow river crossings so I recommend water shoes, or be prepared to take your shoes off a couple times....More

Taking a water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan to Yelapa is the easiest thing ever. The pangas, or rustic water taxis is only $180.00 pesos round trip and its fun, quick and safe. Though many say its an hour panga drive to Yelapa, I timed...More

The hike to the falls is not described very accurately, so we were unprepared for crossing two streams, and about 45 minutes worth of rock scramble. Also, the distance is much longer than the popular town map indicates, which made a big difference for my...More

It's a small falls with a shallow pond you can swim in and get under the falls. It's a somewhat steep hike up past a little town and many vendors - none of which were pushy. Round trip was less than 1/1/2 hours with a...More
