“Exquisite setting and friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

I travelled solo to Chacala in November 2013 and stayed at the Casa Pacifica on the recommendation of a friend. It was an excellent choice for several reasons. First, Chacala itself is a rare find these days – a peaceful, undeveloped, safe and friendly beach town. The beach is a blissful curve of soft sand and the water is calm and warm. Floating in the ocean looking up at the birds of Chacala is the closest thing to paradise I’ve experienced. Casa Pacifica B&B is about a 7-minute walk to the beach, situated in an exquisite garden setting with a beautiful, expansive view of the ocean in the distance. The sounds of the birds and the tropical foliage envelop the senses. I stayed in the Blue Hawaii suite with kitchenette, which was comfortably designed and furnished. All the rooms are lovely. Travelling on my own, what I appreciated most about Casa Pacifica, apart from its natural beauty, is the atmosphere of inclusiveness and sociality that the owner, Susana, creates for her guests. She is very hospitable and generous in extending invitations to various events in the community and arranging outings of different kinds. In short, she enjoys people and bringing people together. One is of course free to partake or not, but I welcomed these opportunities to meet and share with others in the B&B and community. This review would not be complete without mentioning the wonderful staff, such as Berta, who cooked delicious breakfasts and was an absolute delight. I had a wonderful time in Chacala, and staying at the Casa Pacifica was a big part of the experience.

Susana and her excellent staff made us feel very welcome when we came to Chacala for a wedding. We enjoyed different breakfasts each day (although fresh fruit was a welcome constant) and enjoyed sitting on the roof-top deck overlooking the heavily treed surroundings and the ocean. Although I am not a birder, I did notice the dozens of species around (Susana says about 300 can be spotted). We also appreciated it that Susana organized an inexpensive informal taxi ride to the next town, so that we could attend the market there. Our driver waited a couple of hours for us, which made for an excellent outing. Our room was pleasantly appointed and there was a small kitchen (which we did not use). Lots of places to sit in the peaceful, flower-filled garden. All in all, a very pleasant and warm experience.

Honeymoon: From our arrival to the second we left we felt love. Beautiful gardens, great food and helpful staff. We stayed in the galeria del mar, amazing room. We felt very safe and welcome in the small village. We can't wait to return with our family. Xo Rachel & Pio

My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Chacala. We stayed with Susanna and other house guests. It was an amazing experience. The people of Chacala were so warm and opened armed. Casa Pacifica is beautiful, at night you can hear the noises of the jungle and wake up to a lovely breakfast and a wonderful view of the bay. We would recommend this B and B and we can't wait to come back and visit. Thank you to Susanna, Andrew and Berta. We had a wonderful time!

What a birder's paradise! Casa Pacifica is located up on the hill where we had a great view of the jungle canopy and its' MANY feathered inhabitants. Thank goodness for the complimentary birder's checklist! The room was perfect for our small family of three so we could prepare our own lunches and dinners. The short walk to the village and beach were a delightful way to interact with the neighbours, dogs and of course more birds. When we didn't have binoculars or a snorkel/mask stuck to our faces we met LOVELY locals and the handful of visitors that come in November (such a great time of year to travel - so lush, colourful and quiet!). Susana and her team are service oriented and dedicated activists in the community so it really feels like you're part of the positive development of this fishing village when you stay with her. We were very remorseful to have to wash the sand and salt out of our clothes upon our return home...the body/boogie board surfing was fantastic! We researched MANY coastal towns for our family escape and Chacala came up in spades for culture; authenticity; swimming; birding and tranquility. Casa Pacifica was the perfect nest for my little flock. Thank you and hasta luego! - Sonja Z. Gabriola Island, BC Canada

My two girlfriends and I stayed a week last January with the friendly folks at Casa Pacifica. The room was cool and safe and opened onto a beautiful patio landscaped with tropical shrubs and flowers. We had wonderful hand made breakfasts at Mauna Kea roof-top cafe with the best hand squeezed orange juice and fresh fruits. There is a borrowing library, bird identification keys, and binoculars to use to watch the mother and baby whales frolicking in the ocean. Susana and her staff were eager to make sure our stay was exactly what we wanted it to be and were always on hand to greet us upon our return from adventures. It is a short (but somewhat steep) walk to the beach, shopping, and jalapeno margaritas. I enjoyed that the B&B is a bit away from the bustle of town but still connected to it. Chacala is a wonderful little pocket of real Mexico, filled with generous happy people living life in a bit more relaxed way. I highly recommend a trip to Chacala and a stay at Casa Pacifica!

We have stayed with Susana at Casa Pacifica for many years now. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and peaceful. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous! Susana and her staff have become like family to us. They have always helped us with anything we have needed. We love the breakfasts in the cafe as well as being able to take advantage of the local bounty and cook in our room. The perfect swimming beach is a short walk( max 10 minutes) away. We are avid travelers who always return to Casa Pacifica....truly wonderful!
