GREETINGS: My name is Lance, and I own and manage the Fresh Breeze Inn where LIFE IS SERVED SUNNY SIDE UP! We now have a minimum stay of a week. (unless there is a smaller opening between existing reservations) I am offering a 30% discount from November 1st through December 18th. The jungle is very green this time of year due to the rainy season ending in mid October. The water is clear and in the mid to higher eighties, and there are few tourists until near Christmas time. The Fresh Breeze Inn is situated on a hill above the small fishing village of Chacala, Nyarit with ocean views from each of the three Bungalows. The Fresh Breeze Inn is an easy 7 minute walk to the beach. A fresh breeze usually comes up in the early afternoon, hence the name “Fresh Breeze Inn.” We keep the Inn clean and upbeat, and I really do enjoy my role as innkeeper and host. This will be our fifth year, so the Fresh Breeze Inn is relatively new and very well maintained. I live in unit #4 (second floor) and am available day to day to help with information, translations, maps, outings and adventures or to address any problems or questions you might have.
All of the water is now safe to drink at the Fresh Breeze Inn due to an inline ultraviolet light and filtration system. We have digitally programmable wall safes in each apartment to keep your valuables truly secure. The area in front and beside the Inn is one of the best bird watching areas in Chacala. Over 60 species were recently identified from the third floor patio in less then a weeks time. Birders often come up the hill and watch in the early morning. We have a list of the birds found in and around Chacala that is available.
Chacala remains a safe haven. The local people are friendly and welcoming. There are unusually good relations between the internationals and local Mexicans because of positive interactions during the past 20 years.
Our beach was “certified” two years ago which means it is one of the cleanest beaches in Mexico! The south end coconut grove behind the beach has been reopened and cleaned up for RVs and campers. Our small ocean bay provides a relatively safe place to swim, kayak, paddle board or go on ocean excursions in the motorized “pongas” for fishing, whale watching, etc. Reservations can be made at any time. High season (when most visitors come to Chacala) runs from November first through Easter.
Specific information and photos of each our vacation rentals is available by clicking the list on the left side of this page. There are three Chacala vacation rental units at the Fresh Breeze Inn. I keep the availability calendars up to date, so check them out for an available booking. (task bar on the left of this page) Vacation rentals #1 and #2, with a minimal stay of one week, (unless there is a shorter period between existing reservations) are on the first floor, and Vacation rental #3 is on the third floor has a minimum stay of 2 weeks.(unless there is a shorter period between existing reservations) All three have high-quality queen bed mattresses. Vacation rental #1 and #3 also have a futon that opens into a soft double bed and can accommodate up to 4 guests. Vacation rental #2 has a narrow day bed and can accommodate up to 3 guests. The newly tiled and finished patio on the roof, which is available to all guests, has great views in every direction. The garden in back has a terracotta barbecue and is shaded in the afternoon. Because the Inn sits on a dead-end road above the postage stamp sized village, it is relatively quiet. We do have dogs and roosters, as well as vendors driving around broadcasting their wares.
We have two high quality boogie boards available for guests use. Click the toolbar down the left side of this page for specifics of the Inn and surrounding area. Chacala is a great place to relax and enjoy verdant nature at it’s best…It is our little piece of Paradise.
