Chacala Beach Mexico

Private driver -- Anna is a local Mexican who speaks English and is a professional driver. She can pick you up at the Puerto Vallarta airport and bring you to Chacala. She can take you to private beaches, to the petroglyphs, back to Puerto Vallarta or to other beaches along the coast. Reach her at: +52 327 111 3730 - phone number and WhatsApp.

Chacala is a small fishing village 90 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. You can fly into the international airport PVR and arrange for a taxi, a shuttle or take a local bus to bring you here. The local bus will drop you off at Las Varas from where you can take a taxi to the town of Chacala, 15 minutes away.

Since there are no banks or ATMs in Chacala, you can get money changed at the airport or in Las Varas. Make sure your bank card can be used in Mexico, so that you can obtain Mexican Pesos when you need them. There is also an ATM and bank in La Penita (about 30 minutes away) where there is also a Thursday market.

Coming into Chacala from La Penita is a seafood restaurant called Restauran El Comelon. You must make a stop to order food either to eat there under the shade or in the restaurant or to take back to your hotel. Call ahead and order! The best shrimp and pulpo salad ever. Order by the kilo or 1/2 killo! They also have fried food selections. Tele: 322. 111. 2709 or 322. 198. 7339. It's worth the stop.
