Nestled in the southernmost cove of the worlds 7th largest bay, lies the peaceful village of Yelapa, Jalisco, Mexico. Although there is a road which leads to the pueblo, it is most easily accessible by boat. Chicas Locca will be making the small quaint village a regular stop each week for all of our customers that would like to try a new destination.

For many years, this tiny fishing village of Yelapa was the getaway of Bob Dylan, Dennis Hopper, and other cosmic caballero types who gathered in search of lonely beaches, good tequila, and quiet tranquility. Only recently have they been attracting more mainstream travelers that begun looking to the 2,000-person town as an alternative to hustle and bustle of busy Puerto Vallarta.

Yelapa beach is covered in a blanket of golden sand, and is a superb place to swim, snorkel and lounge. The are numerous restaurants along the beach. Snacks can be purchased on shore however the Chica Locca always serves a gourmet lunch to their guests right on the boat.

The slow cruise to Yelapa takes about a 2 hours ride with a stop along the way to one of the many great spots for snorkeling. We will also give you some time for some swimming and to have some fun on one of Chica Locca waterslides.

You can also plan on seeing plenty of Humpback Whales and Dolphins playing, dancing and performing for the Chica Locca guests. The whale season runs November/ December till March/April. Dolphins are with us all year.

Once arriving in Yelapa you can choose your activities, stay on the boat and play with the all the toys that Chica Locca offers, utilize the waterslides and enjoy the comfort or spend time and have lunch on Yelapa beach.

One of our experienced guides will be take a walking tour to the waterfalls. You also have the option to rent a horse if you do not feel like walking. This is separate and totally up to our guests. The walk to the falls is about a half hour to 45 minutes. The walk is informational and right through the small incredible village of Yelapa.

You can go back to the boat at anytime you want and transportation will be offered back and forth for all of our guests so you are in control of your schedule and what you want to do while visiting Yelapa. Our length of stay in Yelapa Bay will be 3 hours before our ride back to La Cruz Marina.

We depart from La Cruz Marina 9:00 AM and will return about 5:00 PM.

This tour was incredible, I have been on the Chica Locca many times to the Marieta Islands which was awesome however this last time to Yelapa was the best ever. When we did Marieta Islands recently they had a no drinking rule and other rules that as a local really found inconvenient. First we stopped at a private snorkeling area that was really great, really clear waters and lots of sea creatures to see then to our next stop, Yelapa bay was really cool and great fun to play with all the kayaks, paddle-boards and waterslides. We took a walk to the waterfalls which were incredible. Great food also. The crew made the ultimate ceviche from a fish caught on the way. I can not say enough about the crew either, they give the ultimate service. You are never without whatever you want. This is the most ultimate tour I have ever been on and I have been on a lot. They know how to do it. I highly recommend this tour, a must do while visiting or like me a local. Thanks Chica Locca
