Where you'll be

Yelapa Town is one of the oldest and most preserved parts of Mexico in the Bay of Banderas. There is a hidden waterfall at the top of the mountain that can be large and booming during the rainy season. Behind the fishing village is a long jungle trail that is best if experienced by horseback, and ends in Yelapa's widest waterfall. Enjoy whale watching and dolphins on the boat ride home.

Rated 4.91 out of 5 from 56 reviews.

The Yelapa tour with Dez was fantastic and totally worth the money! The best part was seeing whales on the water taxi to yelapa, and the amazing seafood once there. Try the pineapple filled with seafood at Domingos- delicious!! Dez was great to be around, and provided just the right of information and guidance along the way. Loved it!

Great experience to see Yelapa and to enjoy it the local way. Our guide was great and was very friendly and informative. I would be extremely careful with the restaurant they take you to at the end, I wouldn’t order seafood from there ever again.

Our guide, Memo, was amazing. Very personable and knowledgeable. Everything about the tour was amazing. Only regret is not trying pie while we were in Yelapa!

This experience was super fantastic. It was like living in a dream. The village, the mountains, the vegetation, the people. Our guide was amazing, she was very well costumer service oriented, she was talking about our experience during the whole journey, her name is Jeanne, after walking to the waterfall and get a little bit in the water, take pictures, etc, we sat at the restaurant and OMG the food was wonderful, the drinks wow! An the return by water to Playa Los Muertos for extra pesos!!! We really enjoyed this experience.

I fell in love with Yelapa! What a wonderful experience. 1000% worth it! We ended up getting a personal tour with Memo. He's very kind and professional. It felt as if we were hanging out with a friend. We felt like one of the locals while still feeling safe as if we had stayed in the touristy areas. What an unforgettable experience! We even saw a whale!
