I loved staying at Caballito del Mar. I had the ground floor suite which was spotless, spacious and comfortable. Karla has designed the space beautifully with artefacts from Tlaquepaque. I also loved the rooftop terrace for its great views over the jungle and the village. Karla herself is a wonderful person, extremely helpful and kind !

I can't overstate how much Karla (the fantastic owner of Caballito del Mar) helped make our first trip to Mexico the trip of a lifetime! Picture this: 16 friends and family members decide to descend on a tiny Mexican fishing village in the middle of fall for an after wedding celebration. Just us, the beach, and 7 days of pure...

We stayed for 4 nights in October, 2014. We were traveling with our two dogs and needed a pet friendly place that fit our budget. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the bedding, the decor and the friendly staff. Karla was very helpful and showed us other vacation rentals for future stays. Chacala is an unspoiled, safe, serene... More

Karla is an excellent hostess - as she was booked for the time we wanted to visit - she went out of her way to make sure we found suitable accomodations. We visited her Casa and found everything to be to our liking, also good view from the roof. During our visit to Chacala we saw Karla in several different... More

We stayed 4 nights over New Year 2013/14 We found Karla very helpful and accommodating with useful suggestions. She made us feel at home. We ate out in the numerous local restaurants but also self catered and found the suites well equipped for this. Karla seems well integrated into the local community and this helped us feel immediately at ease.... More

This was my second stay at Casa Caballito. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and welcoming. I travel with 2 goldens and they were as welcomed as me. Karla is a great source of info on the area. I will definitely return for another relaxing stay.

What a place. We had a small apartment with everything you ever needed. Even fresh orange juice brought to us every morning. Beach with hardly nobody there. Lots of little restaurants on the beach. A must see. 8 days of ready and doing nothing....what a pleasure

We loved Casa Caballito del Mar. The place is clean and very comfortable. We stayed at the Azteca Suite. We really liked it because, even though is a small room, it has everything, AC, clean bathroom, very well decorated. I would definitely go back there. I think the owner, Karla, is a great person, very kind and pleasent.

Staying at Karla's Casa Caballito del Mar is the place to begin your first visit to Chacala or spend extended time. It is convient to what is happening in Chacala. Karla is excellent about providing information regarding the places to visit, local activities and the place to meet other visitors to and locals in Chacala. The rooms are clean and... More

Very nice, very clean, nicely decorated suites. Fabulous upstairs patio with great views. The owner, Karla, is truly one of the nicest people I've ever met. She has a lot of knowledge about the area and is happy to share. There are Friday night get togethers, so you can meet the locasl and other fellow travelers. Chacala is blessed to... More
