350 pesos just too much for a second rate beach town and almost non existant waterfalls. Marginal restaurants. There are better things to do in PV for a lot less money.

I heard many wonderful things about Yelapa, the quaint town and the beautiful beach. Perhaps too many people have heard about the many wonderful things Yelapa has to offer? On the day we went we spent an hour haggling between two ferry boat ticket sellers,...More

Great day hike to waterfall with a refreshing snack at Restaurant el Manguito on the return. Wear swim clothes and always bring water with you!

defiantly worth the hike. Something great to do that's not just laying on the beach. Make sure u bring water to drink. And I recommend starting the hike in the morning before it gets too hot.

Beautiful waterfall, that is worth the walk if you want something different to do, then lay on the beach.

We decided to take the tour with our guide to the waterfalls. The falls were beautiful but low water at the time had them running slow. Still was a pretty site and cool along the tree covered path.

Went on a day trip to yelapa. The weather was cloudy, so we just started to walk into the village. Ended up at the waterfall that was nice, but not great. Don’t go to Yelapa for this hike only.

Well this was an adventure to reach! I would say we were unsure to go and grateful for a local visitor who showed us the way to the falls. Up a windy cobblestone pathway you will find a lovely group of locals jumping in the...More

The Best way is by boat; there is a road but it is in a bad shape and long. We booked our trip in advance; The horses were included (also The scuba gear)
