We visited Yelapa during Xmas week while on a catamaran tour for snorkeling and kayaking from Pto. Vallarta. Reached only by sea, it remains thusfar a charming fishing village, w. friendly, kind inhabitants, some skinny tail wagging dogs...only a nonaggressive few vending junk on the beach to tourists. This dear lady stopped on the dirt path and posed for Ira. I worked in Painter to simplify that photo and achieve this portrait. I wish I'd noted her name, etc. so that I could mail it to her.
