A mere 40-minute water taxi ride, where the wind rips through you hair, salt water hits you in the face and the anticipation of spotting dolphin or whales swimming in the ocean grips you, you'll land in Yelapa, a small beach town at the southernmost tip of Banderas Bay. This enclave that time almost forgot just got electricity three years ago, but seems to really be connected to Puerto Vallarta in every way.
On one edge of Yelapa sits the most welcoming little resort, if you will: Hotel Lagunita. Made up of palapas, or thatched huts, the hotel comprises a little more than a dozen "villas," but any more would be wrong. While we didn't stay at the hotel (we only spent the day at Yelapa), I fell in love with its tranquility and naturally beautiful ambiance.
Best of all was the organic pool overlooking the ocean.
