About Chacala

Chacala (which means "where there are shrimp" in Nahuati), is a charming fishing village located just south of San Blas and just north of Puerto Vallarta on the Nayarit Riviera of Mexico. Nestled on the edge of the jungle, Chacala has lush tropical vegetation and a variety of wildlife.

It is considered to be the least developed location on the west coast of Mexico and boasts a 3000 ft. long section of beautiful pristine beach.  Here you can truly get away from noise pollution and enjoy the area's natural beauty.

The calm bay and gentle surf makes it ideal for swimming, fishing and snorkeling. Local companies offer fishing and snorkeling excursions for those who might get tired of lounging on the beach.
Visitors to Chacala have many activities to choose from including hiking in the mountains overlooking the village and ocean, birding (there are 170 species of exotic birds), jungle tours by boat through the mangroves, relaxing in the nearby hot springs, shopping at the nearby marketplace in La Penita, or whale watching in the Bay of Banderas.

If you are wanting a laid back holiday away from the complications of city life, make Chacala your choice for a relaxing vacation in paradise.
