Local information

The weather in Yelapa is usually very pleasant. It almost never rains from November to early June, and during the wet season the days are usually sunny, with tropical rainstorms only in the afternoons.
"The abundance of water dramatically changes the landscape and refreshes the Soul."

There are various phone and internet facilities around Yelapa. Yelapa has full electricity service, but flashlights are always handy. Also bring binoculars to watch the exotic birds, and particularly the humpback whales and dolphins that often grace us with their presence during the winter months.


Take a taxi from Puerto Vallarta's International Airport to the Los Muertos pier downtown (20 minutes) and take a water taxi to the Yelapa town pier (on your right as you enter Yelapa bay). Your host will greet you at the pier with his horses that carry your luggage to the Retreat Center.
