From Puerto Vallarta
To get to Yelapa, you first must travel to Puerto Vallarta, which is located on the west coast of Mexico. Once in this beautiful city, you need to take a water taxi since there are no cars in Yelapa. The only road is unpaved and ends at the top of the hill (1 km from the village). This road is mostly used to transport material to the community.
Departures to Yelapa
There are daily departures from two different locations in Vallarta, Playa los Muertos located right in downtown Puerto Vallarta, also known as the Zona Romántica or Old Vallarta; and Boca de Tomatlan which is the last beach to the south of Vallarta. To get to this one, you would take a bus bound for Mismaloya (the famous beach where the movie Predator was filmed with Arnold Schwarzenegger), and this beach is the last stop on the bus route.
