Chacala, Nayarit, Mexico (winter)/ Santa Rosa, CA
Reviewed 21 May 2018
Caballito Del Mar is one of the great places to stay in Chacala, Nayarit. The proprietor, Karla Lawler, has lovely gardens, she is bilingual, is always on-site, and the prices are reasonable. Karla is a pillar of the Chacala community, and her lodgings have a following of annual regulars. Thursday evenings Karla hosts a great rooftop social hour for visitors and residents. Caballito is a block from the best breakfasts in Chacala, at Mauna Kea café, on the rooftop of Casa Pacifica B&B-- and a short walk to the beach and "downtown." I highly recommend it. SORT OF A DISCLAIMER: My winter home is across the street from Caballito Del Mar, and Karla is a good friend. This review is unsolicited and genuine.

Our second trip to Chacala and our first of many stays in this delightful Casa. Karla is a warm and friendly hostess. Our room, the Azteca Suite, was very well appointed with every thing we needed to make meals and be comfortable. A table for four inside and a couple of chairs outside our door on the terrace for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails. Surrounded by trees and flowers.

The rooftop terrace is an amazing space to take in the views and lounge around the bar area or stretch out on a hammock. A great place to entertain if you are here with a group.

There is a family friendly suite and is only a five minute walk to the beach. Everything here is super clean and very well maintained.

Highly recommended to all!

Karla was a fantastic hostess when we stayed for 7 weeks in the Mexicano Suite. Chacala is a rustic and quaint Mexican town with roosters, dogs and a fantastic beach..so don't expect the luxuries found in a highly dense resort area. The locals are friendly and a lot of artsy visitors are attracted to this piece of paradise. Our room was clean, large, fully equipped and there was ac in the bedroom. The roof top terrace was fantastic and Karla hosted Thursday night socials. The biggest challenge was trying to find a bank machine nearby that worked. We could definitely make this our yearly winter getaway.

We spent 6 nights here and have mixed thoughts from which are listed. For those of you never being here to Chacala before you should be aware this is a "Mexican " place.
The water is fantastic, loved watching the Mexican family's and there are a few places interesting to eat at.
To review this accommodation :
Very clean
Nice rooftop area to use
Equipped kitchen other than a toaster
Water supplied
Very noisy with countless dogs and chickens
Uncomfortable bed
