Yelapa

By far the most famous of the villages to the south of Boca de Tomatlan, Yelapa, is an interesting blend of island lifestyle, artists retreat and hippie hangout. The lifestyle here is most definitely laid back and very, very informal. Beachfront restaurants serve up fresh seafood at fairly reasonable prices. Many palapa style and stick homes dot the, palm covered, beachside hills. Yelapa is devoid of modern conveniences such as electricity, phones or cars. There is one hotel that operates on generator power until 10 PM, it is candlelight and flashlights after that. A jungle waterfall is one of most popular attractions in Yelapa. Many cruises serve this village that is the closest thing you will probably ever find to a time machine. Step back in time and enjoy a simpler life!
