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 for all of our customers that would like to try a new destination. (Please call for dates available or request a private charter)
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 and the Chica Locca tour will include gourmet lunch and transportation to and from the beach.
The slow cruise to Yelapa takes about a 2 hour 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 water slides.
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 until April/ May.
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 water slides and enjoy the comfort or spend time and have lunch on Yelapa beach.
One of our experienced guides will be taking 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.
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. (Private charters will vary)
