About the Property
Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
We are located on a 25 acre preserve with 24 other palapas sprinkled around the property. Ours is very private and serene, with one of the best panoramic views of sea and mountains. The palapa is located on Los Chonchos beach, which is one hour south of Puerto Vallarta. It is accessible only by water taxi, which leaves twice daily from Boca de Tomatlan. We have all the comforts of home with a kitchen including refrigerator, freezer, gas-burner cook top, spring fed water. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, glasses and utensils. Dining area with hand-hewn table/chairs w seating for four or more. Full bathroom with hot shower, sink, flush toilet. Bedroom has new king sized bed. Amazing views from the deck with hammock and chaise lounge chairs to sunbathe and watch for whales (in season), dolphins and parrots during the day and watch the sunset and incredible starry sky at night. Relax in paradise and go off the grid! The palapa is run by solar power for electricity and propane for the refrigerator/freezer and cook top. Charging station for laptops and cell phones. This is an ideal spot to unplug for a romantic getaway or vacation for the adventure minded. Perfect for relaxing under the sun, snorkeling, swimming, fishing and kayaking. You will have easy access to three beautiful beaches, one nearly a mile long which you will sometimes have all to yourself. There is a hiking trail to the small fishing village of Chimo, two miles from Chonchos. Chimo has an oceanfront restaurant and two small markets. Tired of cooking? There is a restaurant on-site at Chonchos that will serve you three meals a day. Just let Chef Alphonso know what your preferences are! Or order your meal to be delivered to your palapa. Fresh local fish; guacamole made from avocados just picked from the tree! Palapa area has year-round staff (English-speaking) who will help you get settled in upon your arrival and make sure your stay is safe and comfortable.

Why the Owner Chose Chimo, Jal., Mexico:
We visited Chonchos in January of 2015 and fell in love with the place. It's beautiful, quiet, and serene, and we really loved being 'off the grid.' We sat on our deck and watched whales and manta rays in the ocean, iguanas on the rocks below, and parrots overhead. The stars at night were like nothing we had ever seen. We loved our vacation so much that we bought our own palapa, and we get back as often as we can.
