We took the snorkeling and sea-kayaking trip with the tour of Yelapa. The crew was fantastic from the moment they greeted us at the port—professional, service-oriented, and entertaining. I was impressed at how they were able to transition seamlessly between various roles, maintaining our safety and comfort with the appearance of effortless coordination. The snorkeling, quality of the Yelapa tour,... More

We stayed at the Barcelo Mismaloya hotel close to Yelapa and should have booked one of the local panga boat captains to take us to Yelapa. The Adventures Tour party boat was too busy, with poor lunch service. Very poor snorkeling, and the trip to the falls just became a tourist trap. We did break away from the group and... More

We came to escape the noisy hotel resort vibe. Yelapa gave us that for a day. We caught the water taxi from the Los Muertos pier ( end of Malecon board walk) there are kiosks that sells the water taxi fare. From there travel time took 45 mins, be patient since they use these water taxi to haul their market... More

Booked a tour thru Princess for Mahajuitas Beach & Yelapa. The first part of the trip was not memorable. A long boat ride, with announcements and lame dancing (more on that later). We stopped at a private cove for snorkeling and kayaking, but I was not into any of that. Onward to Yelapa, which is a charming seaside village accessible... More

Long boat ride, be sure to take gravel or a motion sickness patch before going, there was several people not feeling very well due to the rough waters. Wear good walking sandals as the ground is very uneven. I would suggest to go to the waterfall, the water is very cold but if you're up to it you can swim... More

A delightful village that I walked from end to end, top to bottom. Interesting houses, stores, streets, etc. Loved the boat ride and the cove where we snorkeled (which was the beginning of trip). The boat ride was wonderful. The crew very accommodating. The service was "spot on". Great day!
