Yelapa & Majahuitas
If you're really looking to escape from it all, then our tranquil day trip to the village and waterfall of Yelapa and waters of Majahuitas cove are an absolute must. With emerald waters and a pristine golden sand beach, these remote coves are ideal for snorkeling, swimming and kayaking and provide the perfect backdrop to explore Banderas Bay's secret hideaways.
Morning in Majahuitas
Morning is spent in the waters of the peaceful and isolated cove of Majahuitas. Situated on the southern coast of the bay, in an area of raw natural beauty, Majahuitas is simply stunning. This virgin, reef-filled coastline is accessible only by boat, making it one of the most desirable spots in the bay for kayaking and snorkeling. Sun-kissed waters and swaying palm trees on the shore await you in this sheltered oasis.
Afternoon in Yelapa
After lunch aboard our luxury catamaran, we head towards the charming, traditional fishing village of Yelapa. Nestled in a stunning natural cove, this tiny community is free of any roads and surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. Hike through town to the Cola de Caballo waterfalls and go for a swim in its refreshing waters that vary in flow throughout the year. Kick-back and bury your toes in the sand at Yelapa's expansive beach; you'll be struck by the idyllic beauty of this tropical paradise.
As we cruise back to Puerta Vallarta with an open bar and onboard fiesta, we'll wrap up a perfect day with some great music, dancing and unforgettable entertainment from the Vallarta Adventure crew - and some guests too, of course!
Just got back from a cruise (NCL) to the Mexican Riviera during the Christmas break. We took children and grandchildren to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. This shore excursion was by far the best that we have ever taken and we have been all over the world. The crew members were wonderful, the food was great and the attention to detail to ensure a great experience has never before been matched . I had just had back surgery 3 months before this cruise and staff members made it possible for me to climb to the waterfall and enjoy all of the activities. Several of the crew even located an ATV to help me navigate the sands on the beach. We brought two grandchildren with us and they also enjoyed the excursion. Staff members danced with them and made them feel important. Thanks to these fine young men who made this occasion so special. We will tell all if our friends not to miss it!
