Chacala Vacation Rentals

Full Kitchens, High Speed Wireless, Walk to Beach & Town

The Fresh Breeze Inn sits on a hill above the jungle, the sea and the small fishing village of Chacala, Mexico. The 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. The Fresh Breeze Inn is relatively new and very well maintained. I live on the second floor and am available to help with information, translations, maps, outings and adventures or to address any problems or questions you might have.

NOTE: We recently installed air conditioning in each apartment to accommodate summer guests.  From November-April, the weather is usually breezy so that AC is not necessary. But should you desire to use AC, the cost is $5 per day.

There are three Chacala vacation rental units at the Fresh Breeze Inn. We keep the availability calendars up to date; do check them out for an available booking.

Apartment 1 and apartment 2 are on the first floor. Apartment 3 is on the third floor. Each has a minimum stay of 3 nights.  Apartment 3 is usually rented for periods of at least a month.

All three apartments have high-quality queen bed mattresses. Apartments 1 and 3 also have a futon that opens into a soft double bed and can accommodate a total of 4 guests.  Apartment 2 can accommodate 2 guests.

All apartments have fully functional kitchens with gas barbecues. Each has well-maintained mosquito screens on all doors and windows. Fresh high quality Mexican coffee is provided for our guests’ enjoyment.

All of the water is safe to drink at the 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. With a new roof over the Inn, guests can sit in the shade on the patio on top of the Inn and enjoy the great views and cooling breezes. The garden behind the Inn has a new water fountain.

A Message From Your Host

Lance Thorne is your host and the owner of the Fresh Breeze Inn

My name is Lance, and I own and manage the Fresh Breeze Inn where LIFE IS SERVED SUNNY SIDE UP!

The jungle is very green this time of year due to the rainy season ending in mid-October. The water is clear and  the ocean temperature is around 87 degrees Fahrenheit. There are few tourists in Chacala until near Christmas time. The ocean temperatures never dip below 80 degrees year-round.

Because Fresh Breeze Inn sits on a dead-end road above the village and the sea, our vacation apartments are relatively quiet. We do have dogs and roosters, as well as vendors driving around broadcasting their wares.

The area around Fresh Breeze Inn is great for bird watching. See our birdwatcher info page which has a list of the birds found in and around Chacala. We also provide a brochure with pictures of the most common birds found in the Riviera Nayarit area.

Chacala, Mexico is a safe haven. The local people are friendly and welcoming. There are unusually good relations between the internationals and locals because of positive interactions during the past 25 years.

Chacala Beach is certified, which means it is very clean and the water is low in bacteria. The south end coconut grove, behind the beach, has been reopened and cleaned up for RVs and campers. Our small ocean bay provides a  safe place to swim, kayak, paddle board or go on ocean excursions in the motorized “pongas” for fishing, whale watching, etc.

We have three high quality boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas available for guests to take to the beach. High season (when most visitors come to Chacala) runs from November through April.

The Fresh Breeze Inn website has Chacala maps and local information with pictures and volunteer opportunities.

Slide shows throughout this website give you a tour of each vacation rental, the Chacala area, and local attractions. Volunteer opportunities for Chacala can be found here. If you click on the slide shows they become enlarged. I hope you enjoy this website and decide to vacation with us in tranquil, beautiful Chacala!

Chacala Mexico is a great place to vacation, relax and enjoy verdant nature at its best…It is our little piece of Paradise.

I would like to give my great thanks and appreciation to my very good friend Bob Varaleau. Without his assistance this website and all of the maps within would not have been possible. He passed away in November 2015.
