Budget Beaches

by Sarah Tuff

Yelapa, Mexico

Many of the world's great hippie hangouts have veered into yuppie yuck: places where people drink $12 appletinis and slumber in four-figure bungalows. Not so at Yelapa, where lime-kissed cervezas are still around $2 and coconut pies, sold by strolling locals on the butter-colored beach, are the same price. This fishing village, on the Pacific coast 20 miles southwest of Puerto Vallarta, was once a hideout for Bob Dylan. Today, the roadless landscape—think mountains and waterfalls—preserves the artsy, condo-free vibe. Sleep in crisp white sheets under a thatched roof at Hotel Lagunita, a 32-room resort where even the creature comforts—like an hourlong sea-salt scrub for $55—have hippie pricing.
