Hike to Yelapa Waterfalls, two sets of cascades near the small beachfront village. A short, easy walk from the quaint town of Yelapa leads to the lower falls, where you can cool off in the clear, chilly water. Reach the upper waterfalls via an hour-long hike from the village center, along the Tuito River. The dirt trail takes you through fields and lush wooded areas; at the top, you'll see the picturesque upper waterfalls tumbling over the rocky boulders. Reward yourself here with a relaxing picnic.

    Frankly I expected more. The path is easy but littered with trash around, unfinished buildings, the waterfall it even isn't bad, the pool downstairs is small, with 10 people it is full, it's hot from oven and the bar next door is just a trite American tourist trap. .. living in the Mexico for 15 years, I've seen 1000 times better.
