About Alicia Christians
Our family is always on the move exploring all over the world. We landed in Chonchos in March of 2017 and loved it so much that we returned 2 times after our initial trip to look at purchasing a palapa. Our family loves exploring the Rocky Mountains, the SW desert, and international destinations that are both safe and adventurous for the family. Since we live in the Rocky Mountains, we realized Los Chonchos would be a great opportunity for the family to also experience the wonders of the ocean.
Alicia Christians purchased this Bungalow in 2017
Why Alicia Christians chose Chimo
We bought Casa Sarah this year and contracted with a local contractor to finish and update this palapa. The results were incredible. The location in the village is superb and the local beaches are magical. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!

The palapa was amazing with an incredible veiw! We enjoyed the wildlife, hiking, and beach front tremendously!
Everyone was very helpful and the meal we purchased at the restaurant was fantastic! Alicia’s palapa is very comfortable with new bed netting and very clean and cozy! The storms we got to see were incredible!!
We enjoyed our trip very much! Thank you Ms Alicia! We will he back!
Wonderful secluded location for a tranquil vacation
This was our second time to Chonchos. The location and experience of being in such a remote spot is what makes it so special. So much more peaceful and relaxing than staying in the heart of Vallarta or in the monster resorts of Neuevo Vallarta!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Sarah! The staff, guests, & owners on site at Los Chonchos were all extremely helpful & friendly. The palapa has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The lovely outdoor shower has hot and cold water, the kitchen is well stocked with supplies, and the candles & lanterns at night make for a lovely ambience.
Keep in mind, this location is remote so some planning is necessary! Be sure to bring plenty of pesos to cover tips, lunch in Chimo, water taxis, etc. Alicia does a fantastic job making suggestions as to what to bring. We brought groceries for breakfast & snacks. Chef Alfonso prepared beautiful & delicious dinners for us in the evenings. We watched the sunset at the big beach one evening and when we returned to our palapa, Alfonso had our dinner waiting for us!
The water taxi from Boca can get very full. They pack in the people and a ton of supplies. We brought reusable grocery bags to transport our food but a bag that zips or a cooler would have worked better since everyone's luggage and supplies are piled at the front of the boat. It is a beautiful boat ride and the boat slowly empties out as you make stops on beautiful beaches along the way to Los Chonchos.
Thanks to Alicia for arranging a driver to and from the airport for us. Jesus was great and made sure we had a driver on both ends of the trip. We went straight from the airport to the ATM, to the grocery store, to Boca de Tomatlan. It was very easy & hassle free.
Casa Sarah is truly a fantastic place to unwind, relax, and enjoy nature. We saw a countless unique birds and tons of butterflies. The view from the palapa is spectacular and it was amazing to fall asleep to the sounds of the waves crashing on the beach. We loved our stay and can't wait to return! This was an amazing experience!
Sweet peaceful retreat
A wonderful home for incredible privacy and views. Enjoyed walks on beach, jungle air and good company.
For us, this was just what we needed...a little adventure getting here and then absolute silence. We hiked to get food into Chimo....and I highly recommend going to chimo’s to order the pan seared snapper. OMG! So good, so simple. There is no menu at this restaurant, so smile, pull out your best Spanglish and let that couple amaze you! I thought chimo’s was better than arturo’s (Solicio’s) . Delightful, all of it.
A restorative dream
This is a great place to unplug and unwind, and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our week there. The palapa is well laid out with everything you'd want to be self-sufficient, and it's view out on the water is great for whalespotting, star gazing or yoga practicing. If you want an activity, there's plenty of sand, beach, and shell collecting, or a walk into Chimo for fish and ceviche at Arturo's. We found it nice to shop for food beforehand and bring basics with us on the water taxi, and are very happy we packed light to keep the beach landing simple.
So nice to wake up every morning and see the waves through the netting, listen to the rustling of the chachalaca's in the trees, and know today's going to be a lot like yesterday: sunny, peaceful, quiet, calm.
Chimo is the nearest town. It can take anywhere between 45-90 minutes to walk there. There are 2 water taxis that can be used to reach Chimo, Yelapa, and Puerto Vallarta. If you are staying in Chonchos, there is a boat that can be chartered to take people deep sea fishing.
