Yelapa is a rare and dreamy find and one of the few remaining locally owned villages in the world. It is a small, picturesque, fishing village located on the southern coast of Mexico and is free of cars, roads, and ATMS. This quaint and charming destination has become an oasis for those seeking reprieve from the hustle and bustle of both city and suburb life.
With sandy beaches, lush jungle, delicious food, and stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, Yelapa is the perfect location for a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat.
The energies of Yelapa, including that of its surrounding river and bay, are unique and very powerful. It is said that Yelapa is located on an "energy vortex" and that it sits on ley lines, where the electromagnetic currents of the earth intersect and are stronger and hold pockets of energy. This is one reason why many believe the land to be very spiritually charged and sacred. You can read more about the magic of Yelapa in the article below.

We chose Yelapa as the location for our retreats because of its unparalleled beauty and peaceful energy. Surrounded by nature and with a strong connection to the local community, Yelapa provides the perfect setting for our guests to escape from the stress of daily life and connect with themselves on a deeper level.
Yelapa feels like a island with 95% of its incoming and outgoing transportation happenning via boat/water taxis. Yelapa is free of cars and paved roads, which adds to its charm and uniqueness and that also makes it a more physically mobile place to be. It is about a quarter mile to the town pueblo from Casa Isabel and about a mile and a half from Casa Isabel to the main beach. Most walking will be on cobblestone streets, dirt paths, and on stairs (that aren't always smooth or even). Most night-wallking requires flashlights or headlamps.
