How to get to Yelapa from RDC?

Hi. Is there a way to get to Yelapa from RDC using public transport? How do you get there? How long roughly does the journey take? Is it easy to get back to RDC from Yelapa in the early evening? Thanks in advance for all informed advice.

If you want to do this om your own,it's pretty easy.

Take the bus in to PV, and go down to the far end of the Malecon to the Los Muertos Pier, from there you catch the water taxi for Yelapa.....the ticket vendor will tell you the departure times at both ends....cost escapes me at this point ....but its relatively cheap....travel time on the water is less than an hour as the boat stops at Los Animas and Quimixto as well.....

Have fun!!

Is there still a water taxi that takes you from Nuevo (near paradise villsge) to the los muertis pier? If so, that would be another option (to get you to the pier where you catch boat another boat to yelapa).

We are also looking at doing this in April.

We found this website: http://www.yelapa.info/ and at the top of the Getting Here page there are 2 links with schedules and fees for getting to and from Yelapa using the water taxi coop.

Hope this helps

blue_toes: Thanks for the link to the water taxi schedules. We are also considerig doing Yelapa as a day trip while staying in Bucerias in April.

Bruce C: How long approximately for the bus from Bucerias and then getting to the Los Muertos pier?

This way of getting to Yelapa sounds waaay quicker than by bus to Boca and water taxi from there:)

2 busses from Bucerias to the Malecon and takes about 40 minutes or so....and the pier is about 3 blocks past the south end of the malecon....so about a 20 minUte walk....

A taxi right to the pier for 2 People from bucerias would be about 350 Pesos....well worth it....
