Just ninety minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, you turn down a winding road leading into a magical paradise of blossoming mango groves, colorful wildflowers and a misty green lake filled with exotic birds. The village of Chacala is a friendly and authentic little fishing town, a well-kept secret hidden from the outside world until the recent road. Chacala will charm you with its minstrel mariachi bands, cobblestone streets, family-run beach restaurants serving the day's catch, homemade salsa, ice-cold beer and the perfect margarita. Local people are outgoing and helpful, and it is safe to walk around at night. The half-moon bay of soft sand is fringed by a picturesque palm plantation. The water is warm, inviting and safe
Paradise. Now follow the lane way above town to the Fresh Breeze Inn, a cool and comfortable oasis fringed by jungle. A seven-minute walk from the vibrant heart of the village and the bay, your new Chacala home sits on the quiet hilltop catching the afternoon breeze and affording you a stunning panoramic view of the sky, jungle, mountains, bay and the ocean stretching to the horizon. Your kitchen comes stocked with fresh-ground regional coffee, purified drinking water, cooking supplies such as salt, pepper, oil, sugar, and a full array utensils. Sip a cool mojito, sit back and enjoy the perfect small-town Mexican beach experience. The roof top is tiled and has lounges, chairs and a table with an umbrella and is available to guests. The roof top gives an incredible panoramic view of the ocean with crashing waves jungle and mountains as well as the picturesque village below.
There are digitally programmable wall safes in each apartment. All of the water in the Inn is safe to drink because of an ultaviolet light and water purification system at the Inn. There are two bungalows on the main floor and a third bungalow that encompasses the entire third floor($65 US #3) All have views of the ocean, the village and surrounding jungle.

Although rarely needed during high season, there is a ventilation fan system. The beds have high-quality mattresses, so you will sleep soundly after a day of adventuring or relaxing, secluded from the bustle and dust of the town center. Two apartments have a fold out futon couch and the third has a small day bed. The garden area adjoining the jungle is a great place to sit and enjoy the cool breeze and shade in the afternoons.
