Yelapa - Good place for a family for a few days?

Jump to last reply

I need some advice.....We are planning a trip to PV in Jan/Feb next year. We are traveling with our 5 yr old and my parents. Yelapa sounds like an ideal place for a few days but I have a few questions:

1. How rough is the boat trip ? The pictures I have seen shows really small water taxi boats but I'm not sure if the waters get rough at all? We've traveled from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel and also from Cancun to Isle Mujeres (sp) but those boats were much larger than those being used to get to Yelapa.

2. Do we need to reserve a water taxi in advance? If we plan on making Yelapa our first night where is the easist place to catch the boat if we are coming from the airport? I understand there are 2 departing locations.

3. I get the impression Yelapa is a family friendly place....is that correct or is more suited for adults? We enjoy quiet places and like I said I"m thinking of spending a few nights there to get a taste of it then moving up the coast . . .. maybe to Sayulita.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
