A Guide to the Restaurants, and Businesses of Yelapa
Yelapa has many restaurants that cater to the local people, as well as the tourists. A great seafood meal of giant shrimp, "camarones", served with garlic, butter and spices, or freshly caught red snapper or dorado, served with rice, a vegetable, and the traditional tortillas, are prepared to perfection. "Sarandeado" (barbecued fish on a stick) is a local specialty. Most of the local establishments do not accept Visa / Mastercard, and it is better to bring cash, or traveler's cheques. The "Beach Restaurant / Bars" are open during the day while the tourists are in town, but some do stay open during the evening. Some of the "Village Restaurant / Bars" are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The atmosphere in all restaurants is casual.
