Just wrapped up a trip with a large group (11), and our stay at the Casas de los Suenos was perfect. The grounds were beautiful, and it's hard for the photos to really represent any of the views from Corona, Grande, or Buena Vista. When you wake up in the morning and see the sunlight unfolding across the river towards the beach...let's just say that the a photo just can't capture it. The houses are really, really well put together and it's apparent how much work goes into 'keeping the jungle at bay'. Beds were comfortable, coffee every morning was a treat (as well as 5 o'clock margaritas).
Yelapa is one of those places that can create a certain type of experience. When you head down there with the right expectations - it will deliver on all fronts. I'll remember my trip to Yelapa for the rest of my life (what I can remember - have fun with the raicilla - I did).
Also of note - Shannon can connect you with Sergio in town. Sergio is the man. He took care of us and made the the water taxi a breeze (as well as our taxis to and from the airport).
I'll never forget that trip, the people we met, and our stay at Casas de los Suenos.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Coming around the bend on the water taxi into the bay of Yelapa, whether it be for the first or for the hundredth time, is one of the most magical moments you'll ever feel. Yelapa is a place to come for total relaxation and adventure combined. Paths instead of roads, boats instead of buses, a symphony of ocean waves, tropical birds, roosters, donkeys and more, all combine to make Yelapa feel like a place out of time, a true tropical paradise. Casa de los Sueños is conveniently located just off the main path up river from the pueblo of Yelapa. Nestled in manicured jungle gardens, perched above the lagoon, it is an easy three minute river crossing to the beach. Los Sueños boasts a rich history full of wild characters and world class travelers. Built up in the 70s by the Shapiro family, the property has been a meeting place for actors, musicians, and artists since its beginning. After 40 years in the community, it was a natural extension for the Roberts family to takeover the property in 2011 and continue the Los Sueños tradition. ... more less
