Yelapa is a hip place.
We’ve gone several times for visits over several years. The longest we stayed was two weeks. It’s a small community accessible – at this point – only by boat. Locals told me there could soon be a road. It’s about 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s public dock at Playa Lost Muertos.
Besides a few posts below that may be helpful, check out Facebook groups. We found a ton of information there from a great bunch of expats and locals. Just search for ‘Yelapa friends’ and ‘Yelapa community’.
