My fiancee and I booked four nights at this amazing boutique hotel set high in the jungles of Yelapa, a town which is conveniently remote and removed from Puerto Vallarta. The journey to Yelapa was exceptionally straightforward and easy. Once at the hotel, there is no reason to leave. The grounds are gorgeous, tasteful, comfortable and relaxing. We stayed in the Pool House and loved the fact that we were never actually indoors throughout the duration of our trip. Also, the large plunge pool in the Pool House was a fantastic experience. Meals were all delicious and the meal plan is reccomended as there is nothing else (you're in the jungle) unless you take the 40 minute walk into Yelapa. With my compliments to the chef, who cooked up our lunch and dinner, there is also no reason to eat elsewhere. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Each night we had dinner by candle light set amongst a backdrop of the beautiful bay while eating delicious local foods. If you need to get away, disconnect and relax without the big tourist resort then Verana is the place.
