The colors of Yelapa (and Mexico as a whole) always blow my mind. Every ramshackle hole-in-the-wall is brightened up by techno colors, all bright and beautiful even on a rainy day. A rainy week. The whole rainy season. Which it was definitely doing when I was there a week ago. The buggies were out in full force too (ever heard of flying termites), but we just laughed about the mud, the bugs, the rain, the humidity, the insanity of it all.
Yelapa is still a magical little village even after 5 years. Pretty much identical to what it always was. I'm thinking its cause there are no cars. You have to take the water ferry (45 minutes from PV) to get there, but once you're there...super chill. Def. go in the non-rainy season, though. If you've been a Toothie for long, you might remember that my very 1st post ever was about Yelapa. Way back in the day...seems like a trillion years ago I was like, "Hmmm....maybe I will start a little travel/food/adventure blog."
We tramped through the village trying not to squash the thousands of baby crabs that had just been hatched and were everywhere, drank primo ojo rojos all day, ate the BEST food (still) at Hotel Lagunita, swam in the rainwater pool (in the rain, of course), saw dolphins flippin' all around the cove, and watched chubby fireflies all night long.
Not sure when I will be back there, I'm in desperate need of some new faraway trips..but that said, I'm challenging myself to stay in one place for 30 days. I don't know if I can do it. I'm already panicking about it. But, if I can pull it off, then maybe I can get some life stuff done, finally. Slow'er down....
Today is Day 1. Agggghhhhhhhh!
