If a boutique hotel in a private jungle retreat on the stunning shores of the Pacific Ocean sounds good to you, then you should definitely check out the Verana Hotel in Yelapa, not far from Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. Here you will find thatched roofed huts, private location and a spa you will not soon forget! This retreat is so remote, you have to get their by boat trip and mule ride....sounds fun to us!
Here there are no cars, no tv and no stress, just pure beauty and relaxation with it's decadent in-water massages, exquisitely fresh authentic Mexican cuisine and breathtaking jungle views....a true luxurious, relaxing retreat offering yoga, massage pool, library, free WiFi in the restaurant and some rooms and king-size beds with linens guaranteed to provide maximum comfort.
All of the delicious food is sourced locally as were all of the building materials. Dining is great with breakfast and dinner served on the beautiful terrace and lunch is enjoyed while relaxing by the beautiful pool. Dress is boho casual and flip flops are a given. There is also a great bar where the tequila flows freely until midnight and offers stellar margaritas, guaranteeing a great nights rest.
This resort is isolated, but that doesn't mean you can't go to town for some excitement and shopping. The resort will plan a day trip for you, or you can stay where you are and schedule a snorkeling trip or a fishing excursion, or take boat ride over to the Marietas Islands for a look at the stunning marine life there such as humpback whales, dolphins, manta rays and sea turtles. You also want to be sure and grab a horse, or hike up to Cathedral Falls for a dip in the clear natural pool!
