South Zone bungalow description
La Palapa Tranquila is one of those unique hard to find special places. If you are looking for something different, an adventurous vacation away from it all, with tranquil days in the sun, deserted beaches and evenings of watching beautiful sunsets, you have found your paradise. Your adventure will be an unforgettable escape from the modern every day rat race.
The palapa house, La Palapa Tranquila, is in an eco resort called Chonchos. It is very remote, which means on some occasions you will need to spend your first night in the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta. There you can enjoy your first evening dining in one of the finest restaurants, visiting many of the art galleries, or strolling along the malecon. We can recommend a hotel in PV if you like. If time allows after the arrival of your flight into PV, you can go directly to the palapa and catch the 9:00 AM or 3:00 PM water taxi Nayeli, from Boca de Tomatlan, an hour from PVR airport.
The water taxi ride will take you by the scenic coastline where the green lush mountains meet the deep blue Pacific Ocean with small Mexican fishing villages, the well known town of Yelapa and other small vacation resorts along the way. After the hour water taxi ride you will arrive at the beach of Chonchos and be greeted by the staff who will help take your luggage to La Palapa Tranquila.
The palapa house is off the grid with solar panels to give you the modern convenience of refrigeration and lights. We have a solar hot water heater for nice warm showers and drinkable clean spring water. Most personal cell phones will have service at the palapa if one wishes to use one. Instead of watching TV, you now can be entertained by nature with a variety of animals, birds and insects and an wide ocean view right in front of the palapa where sightings of whales, dolphins, manta rays and other fish are an entertaining every day phenomena depending what time of the year you are visiting. There are beautiful hikes, one of which takes you to the next quaint little village, Chimo, where one can get cold beer, basic groceries and dine at one of the two local restaurants.
You can also take day trips to other small villages such as Yelapa and Pizota by water taxi. If you are looking for a different type of vacation, then look no more!

Can't wait to return
Traveling with 4 people, we had an awesome stay at this remote destination. Seven days was hardly enough time to be here, but we made the most of it. We loved having our own kitchen and buying fresh caught fish, prawns, and lobster in the local fishing vilage, which was a breathtaking 45 minute walk from the palapa. We would definitely send anyone who wants to get away from it all here, and can't wait until the next time we can return.

Tropical ParadiseGuest comment entered by owner
Wow! Your precious tropical paradise was a treasured experience that we are so greatful you shared with us! It is truly an amazing place and both Don & I agree was THE highlight of our whole trip. You have done an amazing job of bringing it to life, the simple beauty of your decour so blends with the tropical surroundings and spectacular view (so enjoyed rolling the bed out under the stars too). Thank you for all your email tips which prepared us and enhanced our stay. It made our adventure all the more smooth and exciting. The last night Alfonso made us the most delicious shrimp dinner, (so romantic being the only ones there) over the coming sunset. We also loved the hike to Chimo and finished it off with a game of crib on that spectacular yellow sand beach and a body surf in the warm winter waves. We so enjoyed your beatiful patio especially in the 3:00 sun.

About the owner: We were very excited when we came upon the opportunity to buy this special place, La Palapa Tranquila, which is located in the tropics as well as in the middle of the jungle and on the ocean. This had been our dream, to own a little peace of paradise just like this. Now we are happy to share our special place with you. We are very adventurous, athletic and outdoorsy. We love to travel and have been to many places. I am from the Netherlands, so we travel back to Europe quite often. It is one of our favorite destinations. There are so many other places we want to see one day, especially South America and explore more of Mexico. We enjoy the Mexican people and their culture very much. We can't complain about the food either. We are not much into 5 star traveling, even though we have done it from time to time. We find that when you go off the beaten path and stay at different homes, B&B's or small non-chain hotels instead of big luxurious hotels, you meet the most interesting people and learn the most of one's culture.
Why the Owner Chose South Zone:
We chose to buy this vacation rental, because of it's uniqueness. A place like this, totally off the grid away from it all with no roads nearby is so hard to find. It is in such a peaceful beautiful setting that we fell in love with it right away. You are totally connected with nature at all times.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The benefits of staying at our property is to get away from it all. As soon as you set foot on the beach all the weight falls of your shoulders. The place is a little heaven on earth. It is a place where you can sleep and read all day, or you can stay busy with hiking, fishing, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking and exploring nature.
