Photographer: Josef Kandoll W. | Location: Mexican Beach Towns of the Cabo Corrientes

Cabo Corrientes is the cape that forms the south end of Banderas Bay. Due to the rocky terrain, many of the small towns have only been accessible by boat. Such is the case with Yelapa, perhaps one of the most popular towns with regular water taxi service from Puerto Vallarta.

A Bay With A View

A view of the small bay from one of the main streets heading into the pueblo of Yelapa, home to fishing fleets…

Yelapa’s Coastal Surprise

One of the many beautiful beaches along the coast, this one gives onto the bay that is home to Yelapa. Services along this beach include seafood restaurants, a hotel and stores of handmade items.

The Coastal Pueblo of Tehuamixtle

One of the final pueblos on the coastal road beyond El Tuito is Tehuamixtle, another fishing town with small family-run hotels and seafood restaurants.

Arenas de Mayto

The beach at Mayto is one of the longest sand beaches on the coast, with only a few stretches safe for swimming. There are several tourist hotels and restaurants for weekenders.
