I was 20 years old in 1978, taking an overnight boat from Barcelona, Spain to the Iberic islands on the Mediterranean sea.

Yelapa is a small town or village on a large cove or bay on the southernmost rim of the Bahia de Banderas, the Bay of Flags. There are no roads to Yelapa so the contact of the village with Vallarta is via water taxi.

On the 40 water taxi ride we have have witnessed whales, schools of dolphins, turtles and manta rays; not all on one journey, but the water life is really incredible. For those who have been to Yelapa before, the Hotel Lagunita stands on the far left side of the beach while the village is on the far right side of the bay. The hotel itself was built by an amazing artist with extensive rock, stone, brick and bamboo structures and walkways.
The hotel is perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean so the sound of the sea is enormous, present with us day and night. The hotel seems to be placed in the middle of a garden with beautiful palms and tropical plants everywhere.Find out more »
