Casa Banana is our biggest palapa and is often use for families with children. It has one queen-sized ''hanging'' bed and four single beds divided on two levels. We can say that casa Banana is our most open-air casa with saloon type doors and it has a nice tree house feeling. Kids love it. It has its own complete bathroom including shower, hot water and toilet, just a few feet away from the casa. Casa Banana is named for the many banana trees planted around the boundary.

There are no cars in Yelapa. The foot paths are frequently punctuated with tree roots and other uneven surfaces. On land you can either walk or ride a burro. To get an idea of the quality of the foot paths in Yelapa, plese see our video of the path from Playa Isabel to El Jardin. You may easily cross the small cove from El Jardin to the main beach by kayak. If your swimming skills are moderate or better, you could also swim. Since nothing is very far away, walking is the preferred method of getting around. Whether you’re an “adventure traveler,” in search of high-impact outdoor activities, or you’re more comfortable lounging on a beach with a fruity-drink and a trashy magazine, Yelapa has plenty to offer. Isabel Beach is just a ways down the path from El Jardin and is always available for a swim. The snorkeling is amazing at our own front door! El Jardin also has kayaks available if you’d like to go for a paddle. If you want to be more social, you might want to walk the half mile along the scenic footpath through the pueblo to the main beach. The main beach is very pleasant, with several restaurants conveniently located and more than willing to place a cool drink in your hand and bring you a plate of chips and fresh guacamole.

Yelapa is a fishing village with a sizable art community. There are a few galleries, and if you inquire, you can find a number of local artists who will be glad to show you their work.

If you are into fishing, half-day or day-long fishing trips can be arranged. Or, if you’d simply like to explore the area a bit, boat trips to surrounding areas can be arranged. One popular excursion is to the Marietas Islands, where you can see a number of types of birds, including the blue-footed boobies, whose only other habit is located in the Galapagos Islands. Whale watching trips can also be arranged, or just a jaunt down the coast a bit to secluded beaches.

If you like to hike, Yelapa has numerous opportunities for getting out and experiencing the countryside. For starters, a pleasant walk through town and a short way upriver, south of the pueblo, you come to the base of a stunning waterfall, which begins its descent approximately 200-feet above you. Depending on the time of year, the base of the waterfall is a large-but-shallow pool. Having one’s picture taken beneath the falls is a time-honored Yelapa tradition! There is a lovely cafe at the base of the falls, where you can get a margarita and some chips and guacamole and enjoy the scene.

For those who seek a more adventurous hike with a spectacular payoff, there is the hour-and-a-half hike up river to the “big waterfall.” Plan on making a day of hiking to this fall and back, but definitely plan on making it a part of your visit, it’s worth it!. Finally there is a very challenging half-day hike to a village of indigenous people. There are many other hiking opportunities in the surrounding area.

For the the truly adventurous, para-sailing behind a boat or a para-glide off the top of the mountain might be more your style.

After a hard day spent in paradise, you could have a massage from the capable and loving hands of our local masseuses,while literally watching the dazzling ocean under coconut palms.

Maybe lying in the hammock is more what you are looking for or perhaps enjoying the local cuisine (including the famous home-made pies available daily).

From Puerto Vallarta airport to “Los Muertos” pier

To get to Yelapa, you first must travel to Puerto Vallarta, which is located on the west coast of Mexico. Your next task is getting transportation into town.
You need to get to “Los Muertos” pier to take a water taxi, since there are no cars in Yelapa.
You can also come to Yelapa via Boca de Tomatlan, if you arrive to late to catch the last water taxi from Los Muertos.
Allow 25-40 minutes travel time between the Airport and Los Muertos Pier, depending on traffic.
Allow 0:50-1h00 to go to Boca de Tomatlan.


Before exiting the airport, you will see a couple of booth marked TAXI. You can buy your taxi ticket here, this way you are certain you are paying the right price. Buy a taxi for ZONE #2, Los Muertos pier.
The cost to Los Muertos is 300 pesos per cab (1 to 3 people). To go to Boca de Tomatlan it is between 400-500 pesos per cab (1 to 3 people).

Or…you can politely decline these offers and walk across the pedestrian overpass, to the left after exiting the airport and another quick left to get on the over pass, there is a taxi stand on the other side of the road. These taxis are cheaper since they do not pay airport tax. To Los muertos its between 180-200 pesos per cab and Boca de Tomatlan 400 pesos more or less.

Piers (Water-taxis)

There are daily departures from two different locations in Vallarta, the most common one is at Los Muertos pier, located right in downtown Puerto Vallarta in the “zona romantica” or “old Vallarta”.

The second one is further away and is called Boca de Tomatlan which is the last beach to the south of Vallarta. If you get into Vallarta late and will miss the 5pm boat at Los Muertos (or you would like to spend less time in a boat), Boca is a good option to use as a port. It is approximately a 50 minute to an hour taxi ride from the airport. They will let you off at the bottom of the hill and to the right. Just go to the pier.


There is also a travel offices with information about Yelapa located half a block going down from the street to Los Muertos Pier. You can buy your tickets at these offices.

Please remember you will be on Mexico time, so times of departure will vary. The times vary with the season and don’t be surprised if a “scheduled” water taxi isn’t quite on schedule…relax, have a drink at one of the many beach cafes, enjoy the area…the water taxi will get there eventually.

We can also make arrangement, with a extra fee, to have your personal water taxi for late arrivals or simply to enjoy a private trip to our facilities.

Drop off point in Yelapa

There are three primary water taxi drop-off locations in Yelapa: the Main Beach, the Yelapa town Pier and Playa Isabel. Sometimes they also stop at the Lagunitas pier(private). You will want to disembark the water taxi at Playa Isabel. Prepare to get your feet wet! Playa Isabel is, what you call, a wet landing. You will be disembarking directly on the beach.

El Jardin is located on “The Point,” approximately 100 yards on the right, down the path from Playa Isabel. Just a 1 or 2 minutes walk. If cant get off at playa Isabel because weather does not permit, get off at the town pier. It is a 10 to 12 minute walk back to El Jardin.

I was born by the ocean in a small village of Britany and spent most of my childhood in this beautiful part of France.
Twenty years ago I moved to Quebec, Canada where I now live with my lovely wife and our 3 year old daughter.
I studied tourism and I worked in many travel agencies in Montreal until I finally decided to start my own travel agency in 2005. I love my job and I feel very lucky for all the good times I have had and the good people I have met.
For many years I have been going to Yelapa and I have grown very fond of the place and the people.
I am very enthusiastic about starting this new adventure at El Jardin.

I've been a sound engineer and been working in theatres, venues and toured internationally with various music groups, plays or circus acts for the past 20 years. While traveling with my job i also back-backed most regions of the world since a young age.
I feel very lucky to be able to spend time in Yelapa and enjoy life at El jardin.
Our wonderful manager, Laurent, lives at El Jardin and will be happy to give you information about Yelapa's attraction, restaurant, tips, etc.

I hope you will be able to join us very soon in this wonderful ocean front paradise.
Until then, may your life be filled with many wonders.
