Mexico Off The Beaten Path: 212 reviews and 213 photos


Take a water taxi ride or a party boat to places like<FONT COLOR= PURPLE><B>YELAPA</FONT></B>. We followed a path through the jungle and up the mountain to this idyllic waterfall. Along the way, our young guide pointed out a huge nest of black widow spiders hanging from a branch directly overhead and a snake with a mouse in it's mouth crossing the path. We looked over a wooden bridge to see children playing in the river below while their mothers were washing the clothes further down the river. The jungle was littered with beautiful flowers and the butterflies had migrated to the area also. Some people cheated and came up the mountain on horseback (wish I had thought of that!).
