Many years ago Yelapa did not have any phones. Over the years they started appearing, at various places around the village. There is cellular phone reception, although spotty throughout the village. Yelapa now has pay phones at many locations throughout the village which accept "pre-paid calling cards" the cards are available at many of the local stores. They also have Wifi internet service, at some of the village & beach restaurants, hotels, and even some of the rentals…….Some of them are even High Speed Wifi.
