Water taxi to Yalepa

For the longest time I’ve wanted to visit Yalepa, a small village south of PV, and the easiest way is catching a water taxi from Los Muetos pier. The taxi takes about 45 minutes and costs about 125 pesos one way. There is a sign right at the pier and a guy who will sell you a ticket.

I believe the water taxi goes to Yalepa every hour or two but if you just missed one then have a seat at C&C’s, order a margarita and enjoy the scenery while you wait. When the taxi comes they will yell out for everyone to get into the boat. Now one thing to think about is you will probably get your feet wet because you’ll be wading up to the boat. Getting in and out of the boat is a bit cumbersome so if you aren’t that nimble then you may want to book a day cruise trip there instead.

The last taxi leaving Yalepa is around 5pm so make sure you are on the beach waiting for it or you may be spending the night. Not that it’s a bad thing, Yalepa is beautiful!

    • Unfortunately we didn’t have a lot of time to explore because we went specifically to visit John Thompson, a local artist. The taxi drops you off on the beach where there are a couple restaurants. There is a little village but we didnt walk through. Also, there is a waterfall you can hike up to. But the beach is beautiful and perfect for swimming. Actually, Victor and I went in before we left. I definitely want to go back and stay the night in one of the few hotels. I’ll post more after my next visit.
