Come meet her staff: Juan Pedro, Bertha, Chabela and Alejandro, some who have been with her for 14 years. Guest return every year knowing that Susana and her staff are consistently there to welcome them.
Chacala is a small fishing and tourist village. Those that love Chacala are looking for a very Mexican experience. It is low key, friendly, hospitable, off the beaten path, hidden. The many activities can be enjoyed or thought of as "good idea", once the guest gets tired of relaxing on the beach and in the surf.
Chacala is located an hour and half north of Puerto Vallarta. It is located three hours south of Guadalajara. Public transportation in the form of collectivos, vans, taxis and buses are available. Some visitors rent cars.

Susana was a great host and the entire stay was a great experience. The views from the B and B are gorgeous. The beaches surrounding Chacala are also gorgeous. Breakfast was always filling and delicious, and there were plenty of other amenities provided, including hiking maps and suggestions for excursions. The room was exquisitely designed. I also really enjoyed the wildlife viewing in and around the grounds, and if you are interested in an adventure make the hike to Las Cuevas. All in all, I highly recommend staying here and enjoying all the wonderful things Chacala has to offer.
A magical stay at Susanna's hideaway in Chacala! If you are looking for a beautiful place with rooms exquisitely decorated, comfortable beds and a kitchen to boot, this is your spot. Susanna is a charming hostess and has put her heart and soul into this place. She has created an energy vortex of love and relaxation, perfect for overworked westerners like us!
Fabulous breakfast on the rooftop with jungle and ocean views. We will be back!
Staying with Susana made our stay in Chacala truly wonderful. Our room was elegant, super clean and wonderfully comfortable. Having the room made up every day was a wonderful bonus. And Breakfast! full breakfast included in the rooftop cafe everyday with choices ranging from fabulous French toast to full eggs, omelets and huevos rancheros. We met so many wonderful people at breakfast. Chacala is one of the most beautiful little towns in Nayarit and Susana was so wonderfully helpful with local events and recommendations in the area. The only sad part was saying good bye to Susana and all our new friends. We've already booked our favorite room with Susana for next year just incase she fills up!
Our time spent at the beautiful Casa Pacifica was truly marvelous. Susana and her friendly team went out of their way to ensure that our stay was more than comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time up on the roof top every morning where the delicious breakfast was served, it was such a great start to the day. We enjoyed ourselves so much, we even stayed an extra night!
La casa de Susana es muy bonita y tiene unos acabados únicos y bien logrados. La habitación es amplia y cómoda. La terraza tiene vista sobre el bosque y el mar. Los desayunos criollos están deliciosos. La playa está a cinco minutos caminando. Susan es una mujer encantadora. Recomendado 100%
Susana was fantastic, and the photos of her place really don't do it justice. Each room is unique and thoughtfully decorated. The cafe was closed for the off season, so instead Bertha (Susana's helper) brought us breakfast each morning. Both she and Susana were so great, and made us feel very welcome.
The house is located at the edge of town, just far enough away to feel tucked into the greenery and close enough that the beach and everything else is within 10-15 minutes walking. The views from Susana's place are gorgeous, especially from the roof terrace. We loved sitting up there and playing cards, drinking coffee, and just taking it all in.
If we could do it all over again, we'd probably go back during the high season. Chacala is a sleepy town, and was especially so while we were there. On days when the waves were not good enough to surf, that left us feeling a little lost at times. And it was unseasonably hot for the end of October. Having a rental car with air conditioning certainly helped in both regards. As far as Susana's place goes, we would certainly stay there again (but next time we might bring our own pillows).
All in all, we had a great time. The beaches were beautiful, the people we met in town were all very kind, and Susana and Bertha were wonderful hostesses. I hope we see them again one day.
we had a wonderful experience, Susana PA,Jenyia, welcomed us so well. Bertha the local caretaker prepared delicious breakfast for us with fresh fruits of the season and other local specialties upon request. We enjoyed the beach, the restaurants and visiting local towns, Boat excursions to swimm on more remote beaches. A great place to relax and discover, regenerate the senses.

About the Host, Susana
I am blessed. I live in a serene jungle, surrounded by my gardens, listening to birdsong all day. I pause and enjoy the views of trees, ocean, flowers, birds flying by. Reading, interesting conversations, yoga, Tai Chi, education are all my passions. I walk my dogs each afternoon along the beach. I have my favorite Tai Chi spots, whether by the ocean or on my rooftop.
