Le logement

Our palapa sits about 90' above the ocean with exquisite views of a rocky cove. There are no railings to block your view of the whales, mantas, eagle rays and dolphins frolicking in front of your deck. The master bedroom has a Mexican queen bed (smaller than a US one). The sofa converts to a second queen bed as well. The palapa has large openings all around so this is pretty much outdoor living. The kitchen features a fridge and freezer and there are lights, outlets and inverters to power your small electronics like cell phones or tablets. The bathroom is both indoor and out. The bathroom and shower are private with the shower open to the sky.

Gary, one of our previous AirBnB guest had this to say about our Palapa:
"Peter in our opinion this was by far the nicest of the palapas on offer! We looked at quite a few with our friends in consideration of another stay with more people. Fantastically well appointed, simple/uncluttered, clean - thorough balance achieved. Fits perfectly our aesthetic. Longer next time! With friends in one of the other palapas with a view up into the jungle – perfection! We would highly recommend to anyone.

Accès des voyageurs

There is staff on site at Chonchos to help you off the boat and get you established. The restaurant serves excellent, local fare and drinks upon prior request.

The entire palapa will be yours. Please be aware that it is not suitable for small children as there are only short 18" railings. Beautiful and secluded beaches are located on both sides of the palapa and are less than a 5 minute walk away. In addition, our cliffside location provides privacy and outstanding views.
Chonchos is accessed by water taxi from Boca de Tomatlan, near Mismaloya (approximately 30 minutes from Old Town Puerto Vallarta). The water taxi (Nayeli) makes two trips daily, 9am and 3pm, and the ride is a little over an hour depending on the load and conditions. The excursion is one of the highlights of your visit due to the outstanding scenery and marine life that you'll come across.

This is an ideal site for nature lovers, outdoors people, and those who want to get a away from is all. If you're into fishing, spear fishing, snorkeling, birding, or marine mammals this place is for you.

Le quartier

Chonchos is an eco reserve consisting of 25 unique palapas. Each one is unique and magical in it's own special way. There are typically very few guests on site, ensuring you a romantic and peaceful get away.

The village of Chimo is an authentic, Mexican fishing village. Here you can purchase fresh made tortillas, (everyday at 1PM.) Drop into one of the two restaurants for lunch or a beer, or purchase supplies.

There are no ATM's in Chimo and dollars aren't easily accepted. Make sure you bring pesos preferably in denominations of 200 or less. Our friends have a tough time with the 500's.

Realistically, you will probably need to stay in Puerto Vallarta both before and after your trip to Chonchos.
We are a 40 minute walk to the quaint fishing village of Chimo with two fun restaurants and supplies. (Fresh tortillas daily at 1:00 PM!) You can also take the daily water taxi to visit Pizota or Yelapa and check out the great waterfalls at both locations.

Autres remarques

Chonchos is a rustic and rugged environment located in the jungle. There are amazing flora, fauna and marine life to keep you occupied. Cell service is spotty, texting works best. There is probably no internet. This is definitely an old school vacation, providing you a chance to unplug during your stay.
Some other things to do:
A short water taxi ride to a little farm at Pizota. From here it's a moderate hike up to a beautiful waterfall and deep freshwater pool. Afterwards Rosa will have cervazas ready on the beach.
You can get one of the local divers to take you out in his boat. It's equipped with a compressor and air hoses sort of like Snuba, Mexican style.
Real sportfishing boats with heavy gear are available in Yelapa. They could pick us up / drop off at Chonchos.
For the fit, get one of the guys to take you on a little hike. Refugio is about 640 metres straight up the mountain through jungle. Then a very small ranch town. Nice place for lunch.
Perhaps a day in Yelapa. Go para-sailing behind a boat, or para-sail (tandem) off the top of the mountain. There is also horseback riding, and, well, eating and drinking

An absolute delight. Maracuya is easily the best palapa at los Chonchos, and Peter was a wonderful host. Every detail was considered!

We had an incredible time at Los Chonchos . The palapa was clean and nice. True to the pictures! We Loved seeing the stars and hearing the ocean, it really is open to the elements! Imagine super comfy camping. Bring all your food with you, as the hike into town is formidable mile and a half, and choice is really limited. Though , there are two restaurants, with very kind owners. We traveled with a six month old and hiked in each day for fun and food. the only iffy thing is the water taxi situation. The waves were so big, it was questionable as to if the taxi would be able to come and pick us up on the day we were supposed to leave. The taxi guys said they could not make the landing. I guess it is an unusual year due to large waves and El Niño. We ended up hiking to Chimo with all our stuff, over two days , and getting on the water taxi there.

We spent a wonderful week at Peter's Los Chonchos Palapa Maracuya (Palapa Passion Fruit). The palapa is private, very well taken care of and well appointed. We are foodies and spent a lot of time in the kitchen/dining area preparing and eating with a tremendous view of the ocean. We had the good fortune of traveling with a couple who had previously spent time in Chonchos so we came well stocked with boxes of provisions from the market in Puerto Vallarta. We hiked into Chimo twice to buy fish/seafood from local fisherman and some basics from the general store. Chimo is a couple of kilometers away over a well-used trail. You do need to be prepared to be off-line and off-grid and in decent shape to fully enjoy this experience but as travelers who enjoy cycle touring through the Caribbean, canoeing in northern Canada, and snowshoeing in the Rockies this was a fabulous get away that we would gladly recommend to anyone who is looking for something different. The people who are there to assist on arrival were gracious, helpful and willing to pitch in and give a hand. The beach for swimming was just minutes away if you could pull yourself off the deck chairs where you are inundated with birds, raptors, butterflies and a cacophony of sounds including the ocean. I never thought spotting a whale would become passé but inevitably overtime it gets in the way of sinking into a good novel. We would be happy to go back but next time it will be for longer.

Where can I start? Los Chonchos was a real gem! My boyfriend and I had the most romantic adventure during our 5 day stay at the Palapa Maracuya. The one thing that really needs to be mentioned though, is that it is not a place for just anybody. In order to enjoy your trip, you should love camping, be somewhat physically fit (you have to jump off the water taxi) and not be afraid of living amongst jungle creatures and no internet. The palapa was really nice, clean and very private compared to some of the other ones. It is also located closer to the big beach where we spent a lot of time. I think that we were Pete's first renters and I would definitely go back in a heart beat! The deck has an amazing view where we got to see some whales and fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks. We packed really light, just one backpack each and a small duffel with our food. I would recommend bringing pretty much all your food and not relying on getting much in Chimo, because it is hit or miss and they have just basic stuff. We did enjoy a couple meals in Chimo at the restaurant. Chimo was about a 40 minute hike through the jungle, the terrain is pretty rugged, but it is a beautiful hike. Los Chonchos is a really beautiful place with great people! If you just want to relax, enjoy the ocean and the simplicity of being off the grid, then this place is for you.

Annie, Many thanks for the great review. It has been the roughest season getting on or off the boat in years. El Nino perhaps? I think that may also be the reason for the "wildlife." I will most definitely revise the listing to talk about the more strenuous aspects of Chonchos and I'll start sending out the manual upon confirmation of the booking. Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year. Pete

We're from San Diego, and have rented in many countries with AirBnB. This year we listed our Romantic, Jungle Palapa, near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
