Comfortable accommodation with a personal touch. We especially appreciated the separate bedroom, the view from the rooftop patio and the on-site host who was very welcoming and helpful. Excellent birding right from the patio! Easy walk to the ( very) little town and clean beach ( limited groceries) and easy public transport to Las Varas for services and ATM. Excellent... More

Chacala is a quiet safe haven in this crazy world we live in. If you love nature, enjoy friendly people and would like to relax Chacala is the place for you. I just put a roof over the rooftop patio so you can enjoy the great views and refreshing breezes in the shade all day long.... More

The rooms are large and very comfortable. No air conditioning but as the name suggests, the fans and breeze do away with any need for AC. The kitchens are complete. The view from the mirador is terrific. The owner, Lance, lives on site. He is helpful and a character who enjoys the laid back lifestyle that is Chacala. Rooms are... More

If you are looking for a the real Mexico, this is the place. Casual, friendly, small, relaxing. Lance is a wonderful host and truly enjoys helping you enjoy Chacala. The Inn is well appointed and situated for fresh breezes and views. Bring your hiking shoes.

Basically, we loved everything about this little "inn". It was clean, had comfortable beds, a good kitchen, nice patio, etc. We never minded staying a bit off the beaten track - the location was quiet, and, being on a hillside, caught the breeze. Plus, the little trek gave us a chance to see the town and work off some of... More

If you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay, with an attentive landlord, beautiful views, and amazing bird watching, look no further than Lance Thorne’s third-floor Posada Brisa Fresca apartment in Chacala, Nayarit, Mexico.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fresh Breeze Inn sits on a hill over looking the town and ocean. We get a nice breeze up here, which is great in the afternoons, yet it is only a 7 minute walk through the colorful safe village of Chacala to the beach. We have three apartments with queen beds and full kitchens. The third floor apartment has a double sized futon so that it can accommodate up to 4 people. I supply purified water, local high quality coffee beans, cooking oil,sugar, salt,etc.; so that getting "up and cooking" is not a problem. All apartments have ocean views with patios in front facing the ocean. There is a nice garden behind the Inn with a barbecue available to our guests. We strive to keep the Inn clean and upbeat. Rates run from $75 US for 4 people a night on the third floor; (65 for 2 people) and $55 a night for the two main floor apartments. The seventh night per week is free and discounts can be negotiated for says of a month or more. We hope to see you here in this tropical paradise. ... more   less
