Chacala – Feb. 22-23, 2011

We stopped for one rolly night in Chacala. This is what Mexico should look like. I love it! Beautiful beach, palapa restaurants and bars, small teindas and friendly people. We went ashore to check out the small town and have a few drinks under a palapa.

On the way back to the boat we stopped by Yancey for cocktails. Joe and Fran were having dinghy problems. Not to worry, they had a new dinghy shipped from San Diego to La Cruz. It is good to have a connection in the marine industry.  In this anchorage, some boats have a stern anchor and a bow anchor, but since we were only staying one night, we didn’t put out the stern anchor. We were swinging and the boat was sideways to the waves most of the night. Note to self ‘Next time use the stern’. We were up early and out of there. On our way to La Cruz in Banderas Bay.


  1. Looks wonderful. I have a friend who has built a
    duplex in Chacala. I hope to get over to see him
    someday. Miss you two.

  2. Can't wait to check out Chacala - looks like our kind of place!
