Hike to Yelapa Waterfalls, two sets of cascades near the small beachfront village. A short, easy walk from the quaint town of Yelapa leads to the lower falls, where you can cool off in the clear, chilly water. Reach the upper waterfalls via an hour-long hike from the village center, along the Tuito River. The dirt trail takes you through fields and lush wooded areas; at the top, you'll see the picturesque upper waterfalls tumbling over the rocky boulders. Reward yourself here with a relaxing picnic.

This is medium sized!!! We have seen waterfalls and this one is a smallish medium sized waterfall!!! more »
It was a beautiful walk to the waterfall. The way down however was difficult in sandals so if possible it is best to wear more sturdy shoes. It was otherwise a great experience and was very cool to get to walk through the little town of Yalapa.
If you’re traveling this way, definitely check out this waterfall. The hike is relatively easy and there are some cute vendors along the way.
