Bienvenido, loyal reader. Please come along as Bruce and Mary check out Yelapa, a fishing village and resort town accessible only by water.
We’re boarding the bus to Boca de Tomatlan, the first leg of our Yelapa adventure. Robert and Lynn, having visited Yelapa on their last PV vacation 6 years ago, inspired us to check it out. Robert told us to be on the alert for old hippies recruiting new blood.
Los Arcos, circa Mismaloya.
Where we have a couple beers on their patio and buy our water taxi tickets to Yelapa. The roundtrip cost is 280P for both of us. We could have taxied from the Los Muertos Pier on our beach but that would have cost 280P each. And the round trip Boca bus ride is only 28P for the both of us. Sidenote: I did get my 5P bano fee refunded after having become a cliente. My reputation as a tacaño remains unvarnished.
This and the next two pix are views from our water taxi on this 35 minute cruise.
On our way we drop off passengers at Las Animas and…
Our stomachs are growling so we are very pleased to stumble upon Cafe Bahia. The Muy Amable Susan is the owner.
Our food arrives. This is Mary’s meal: A delicious black bean, vegetable soup with rice, sour cream and guacamole, and it is perhaps the best she has had. Mary purrs that she would eat this every day if she could.
After settling up we head back through town trying to find the “high road” near the top of the hill that Ken our server had pointed to, as that is the way most normal people get to the main beach. As we’re walking we hear what sounds like a music fest and…
We come upon this church of the Holy Rollers.
Now that’s what I’m talking about! We’re back on the beach at Restaurante Rogelio relaxing. Our water taxi won’t be here for awhile.
But by the time we get back to PV it is standing room only. And yes, gentleman that I am, I do give up my seat to a nice gringa from Cleveland with whom Mary thoroughly enjoys chatting about grand-babies and such things.
Thanks for visiting, gentle reader. Bruce and Mary were completely enchanted with Yelapa and a day trip does not do it justice. The next visit will be an over-nighter at least. BTW: Bruce apologizes for the poor quality of the pix in this post. Mary reports that Bruce has been relieved of pix taking duties for the time being. Hasta proxima Domingo!
