If you like quaint, hippy towns, find Yelapa on Airbnb. Our 3rd time here and we love it even more. So much so, we will be back next November for a few weeks, with more family.
We met a lovely lady, Chrissie, from my hometown Santa Cruz, who has a few darling, open air villas. She kindly invited us up for a tour, fun chat, best view and a beer. Just 50 hand laid steps up from our private snorkel spot and mini achorage/beach. The jungle wall and cliff was awesome and so green, even in the dry season.
We brought a new cruiser family with us, sailing on “Nirvana”. The 10 of us explored the town, delicious foods from the funky yacht club and hiked the 2 beautiful waterfalls. See ya next year Yelapa!
