Chacala, discovered in 1524 ,is one of our favorite “off the beaten track” beach towns. It’s located about 65 mi or 104 klm north of PV, just before San Blas, about 2 hours by car & 3 hours by bus. You have to turn left from the main road ,it’s then a 6 mi or 9 klm, drive, hitch or taxi, to reach Chacala.  We suggest you stay at least 2 nights to really relax  and maybe go fishing or snorkeling with the locals. Its 100 yard or 90 mts long beach has a calm surf perfect for swiming . Nearby attractions include: hot springs, extinct volcano & petroglyphs.  Make sure it’s not a holiday period.


Las Brisas Hotel Posada,is located on the calm beach, surrounded by coconut palm trees. It has 11 rooms that cost about $35 to $60 US per night with breakfast included. They also have a great restaurant serving typical home made Mexican & Internatioal dishes. The sleepy beach town , just 3 blocks long ,is just steps from the hotel.The owner is Piedad Pelayo & her daughter Karla is the manager. They both speak English and treat you like family. The family also has a small hotel called  Brissas de Mayto, right on the beach in Mayto. Another great “off the beaten track” place to relax & explore. It’s just 2 hours south by car from Puerto Vallarta, For more details on both hotels visit their website.
