Yelapa & Majahuitas

The Bay of Banderas is home to two of the most picturesque coves in all of Mexico: Yelapa and Majahuitas, located just south of Puerto Vallarta. Home to sandy beaches, warm ocean waters, and tropical wildlife both on land and in the sea.



If you're really looking to escape from it all, then a tranquil day trip to the village and waterfall of Yelapa and waters of Majahuitas cove are an absolute must.

With emerald waters and a pristine golden sand beach, these remote coves are ideal for snorkeling, swimming and kayaking and provide the perfect backdrop to explore Banderas Bay's secret hideaways.

Enjoy a great ride to Majuitas and snorkel in the clear water in the bay then off to Yelapa, one of the small villages that make up the native community along the southside of the Banderas Bay.

On the way, you will stop at one of the snorkeling spots, in the waters of the peaceful and isolated cove of Majahuitas, where you will chase after tropical fish.

Once at Yelapa, you will have a guided tour of the cove and visit the major sites, including the beautiful Yelapa Cola de Caballo waterfalls, while listening to stories of the remote village and its people.

There are no roads in Yelapa, the only access is by boat.

Electricity was only introduced to the area less than 10+ years ago! The incomparable beauty and charm, as well as the simple lifestyle has attracted visitors from all over the world. There are now about 500 international residents who have been captivated by the lifestyle and now call Yelapa their hometown.
