Ok Yelapa isn't for everyone. The 30 minute boat ride to get there would be daunting for many. Most expect air-conditioning, there isn't any. However if you are a hardier than average traveler in reasonable physical condition and really enjoy nature; this place might need to be in your bucket list.
Lagunita Hotel is a well run if somewhat rustic resort 30 minutes south of Puerto Vallarta by boat . Roads simply don't go there.
Service is always friendly, but depending on who is on duty a little skill with Spanish might help. The charms are many: very picture-esq lagoon( great sunsets), nature in evidence(tropical birds, butterflies etc) . The food is reasonably priced and above average. The drinks are not watered down. That helps to make the sunsets more vivid. There is a nice small freshwater pool for those who need to cool off. Don’t dive in . It is decorated with boulders both above and below the waterline. Idiots should not vacation here. Please go to Cancun.
Available short trips are interesting---take a mule up the local hills, tour the village you might have to wade. You will have to climb some steep stairs, or just take a long walk on the beach. Fishing boats are for rent with a captain. Snorkeling is also available. Warning, the sand is coarse and rough, but in this place the difficulties are worth it. You need to be prepared for warm nights from mid June through the end of October. This is a top getaway for those who like a little nature with their resort life. A flashlight, and some bug spray might come in handy.
