yep we're heading down there, yelepa.
a handfull of people (if that many) use this road every month.
everyone comes in via boat (that's puerto vallarta in the background, a 45min boat ride away)...but we're advers right?
we don't need no stinking boats!

ps this is the hang gliding launch site down to Y.

The Road to Yelapa

OK Bill, let's get one thing straight right from the start. You might call that a road, and you posted some pretty tame pictures to give people that impression. Was I on a different road?

For a place that has next to no information online about anything but water access we managed to find road signs. Local knowledge I guess. Here's Bill leading the way.

Might not look like much to many of you inmates but for me it was the most intense off-road riding I've ever done. I loved it! To be fair though neither of us knew what we were getting into that day. Now we do.

Started to look more like this in short order.

I didn't feel like it was the right time to be taking many pictures that day since I was starting to hang on for dear life once we hit "The Road".

I did come back to Yelapa via water taxi with my girlfriend and we're still here, until tomorrow that is. Wanting some pictures we hiked back out to the road for a bit and stuff like this is what Bill didn't have in his collection of pics.
