Yelapa, a serene day charter destination, is located in the seventh largest bay in the world and is the second largest in Mexico. It boasts beautiful beaches and calm waters. Since the 1950s, Yelapa has been a haven for notable figures like Bob Dylan and Dennis Hopper, who sought solace in its peaceful atmosphere, unspoiled beaches, and warm hospitality. With a population of only 2000 and no cars or roads, it’s a perfect getaway. The journey from Puerto Vallarta takes about 1-2 hours, offering opportunities for snorkeling and other water activities. Once you arrive, you can explore beachfront eateries, go on horseback adventures, or visit the village pier. You’re free to stay as long as you’d like, with transportation readily available. Return to the boat for cocktails and a gourmet meal, making Yelapa an ideal day tour or enchanting overnight spot.
From November to April, be on the lookout for whales, as the bay is bustling with them during this period. Throughout the year, you can often spot playful dolphins, treating you to their graceful aquatic performance.
