We enjoyed our time in Yelapa and at Casa Armadillo. Ian was very helpful and answered all my questions quickly. We had taken an earlier water taxi then we had told Ian but once on the pier in Yelapa we were asked where we were staying and someone called Vico to tell him we had …

The only thing I can add to the many other glowing reviews is that I wish there was a rip in the time/space continuum that would allow me to stay in this place forever. One tiny thing to mention: you might want to bring warmer clothes to sleep in than you'd usually pack for a tr…

Beautiful, thoughtfully tended to space. Clean, comfortable, lovely. Great communication with host and caretaker. Only qualm was that the area tends to get very loud at night. Bring your earplugs!

Beautiful palapa in a private natural setting, was a wonderful experience. Must be able to do many steps. Vico, property manager, was most helpful and friendly. Yelapa view from Airbnb was a real bonus!

Response from Ian:
Hello Peter, I am so glad that you enjoyed your time at Casa Alegre. I am sorry to hear that you had a hard time sleeping. It is true that music from town can sometimes be loud and play late into the night, but it is uncommon for it to be so loud and late and thus so disturbing. Yelapa is a lively town where both visitors and residents enjoy the occasional celebration which is why I recommend ear plugs in the house manual. Regarding the light that shines from across the bay, it is located on the main Yelapa beach and is approximately a mile away from the house. I'm sorry it was disturbing to you. I have been told it is a security measure to discourage boat theft. The boats in the bay are both the livelihood and soul of the town. Neither people nor goods could come to Yelapa without those boats. I appreciate your honesty in mentioning these matters. Hopefully your review will be helpful to others who come here. It is important to understand that Yelapa is not a tropical resort designed only to cater to vacationers. This is a small but very functional fishing village that sits in a very unique location perched on the edge of the jungle. The town is full of lovely people who are welcoming and accommodating and also living their lives. That they are willing to share this wonderful place with all of us is part of what makes Yelapa such a special place!
