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.

We spent 2 weeks at Casa Caballito del Mar in Chacala Mexico and had a super relaxing time. The Mexicana Suite we stayed in was roomy and comfortable. We had coffee every morning out on the deck outside our suite or up on the rooftop. The gardens were beautifully kept with native trees and plants. Our accommodations were a couple... More

This hotel is fantastic. Clean, friendly, great location, afforedable, "off the beaten path," The owner, Karla, also helps us "gringos" in obtaining a shuttle, restaurant info, and other attractions. The location is not a tourist trap! It is laid back and down to earth. Relaxation and seeing and hanging out on the ocean beach everyday is heaven.

Four of us traveled from Seattle for a couple warm weeks in Mexico. Our first stop, Chacala, was the most pleasant surprise. Karla's recently built guest house with gorgeous gardens was welcoming. She is very energetic and helpful. We loved the village of under 300 people. Everyone knows everyone. Karla's Friday night roof top gatherings help bring people together. In... More
