2 years ago we went to Yelapa and found it beautiful. What ruined our trip was the crooked water taxi guide (Ernie, probably not his true name) that we got stuck with. Yelapa is beautiful as well as the beach. Our guide had a deal...More

We had a fun boat ride to Yelapa and a great afternoon on the beach. There are several restaurants and some great seafood. We plan on returning soon as we didn't make it to the falls.

It was a nice walk up to the falls. Didn't like that the road up to it is full of vendors but I guess that's what they need to do. I will add they were friendly and not pushy. Lots of people were always coming...More

the hike to the falls in longer (plan on a day with littler kids) but the falls are beautiful. We rode horses - which were old, and expensive (I recommend haggling down to $10/person if you go that route.)

How convenient to have a waterfall in town! This is worth the gentle walk and also offers a chance to buy local products for souvenirs. You can have refreshments at a small restaurant nestled at the base of the falls and it's not unusual to...More
