Pesos and Exchange Rate
Please budget $50-$75(USD) per day.  You can exchange USD for MXN pesos at your local bank.  I monitor the exchange rate a couple of months before camp.  Bring pesos to Yelapa, as there are no ATM's or banks.   I suggest 20, 50 or 100 peso note.  Each room has a small safe to store your pesos and passports.  Debit and credit cards are not accepted for payment, in Yelapa. 

Shopping
Yelapa has a sarong shop on the beach and a small store in the pueblo.  There are a couple of beach vendors, who sell jewelry.   Stores in Puerto Vallarta sell everything from sunglasses to blankets. 

Meals
Breakfast and dinner are included.  Lunch will usually be on the beach.   All food allergies will be taken into consideration, please indicate them on your registration form.  Most meals are vegetarian, as we practice Ahimsa, non harm of animals. You are welcome to order a meat entre for Tuesday lunch, during excursion.
