La Palapa Tranquila is one of those unique hard to find special places. If you are looking for something different, an adventurous vacation away from it all, with tranquil days in the sun, deserted beaches and evenings of watching beautiful sunsets, you have found your paradise. Your adventure will be an unforgettable escape from the modern every day rat race. The palapa house, La Palapa Tranquila, is in an eco resort called Chonchos. It is very remote, which means on some occasions you will need to spend your first night in the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta. There you can enjoy your first evening dining in one of the finest restaurants, visiting many of the art galleries, or strolling along the malecon. We can recommend a hotel in PV if you like.

If you are looking for something different, an adventurous vacation away from it all, with tranquil days in the sun, deserted beaches and evenings of watching beautiful sunsets, you have found your paradise. Your adventure will be an unforgettable escape from the modern every day rat race. The palapa house, La Palapa Tranquila, is in an eco resort called Chonchos. It is very remote, which means on some occasions you will need to spend your first night in the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta. There you can enjoy your first evening dining in one of the finest restaurants, visiting many of the art galleries, or strolling along the malecon. We can recommend a hotel in PV if you like. If time allows after the arrival of your flight into PV, you can go directly to the palapa and catch the 9:00 AM or 3:00 PM water taxi Nayeli, from Boca de Tomatlan, an hour from PVR airport. The water taxi ride will take you by the scenic coastline where the green lush mountains meet the deep blue Pacific Ocean with small Mexican fishing villages, the well known town of Yelapa and other small vacation resorts along the way. After the hour water taxi ride you will arrive at the beach of Chonchos and be greeted by the staff who will help take your luggage to La Palapa Tranquila. The palapa house is off the grid with solar panels to give you the modern convenience of refrigeration and lights. We have a solar hot water heater for nice warm showers and drinkable clean spring water. Most personal cell phones will have service at the palapa if one wishes to use one. Instead of watching TV you will be entertained by nature with a variety of animals, birds and insects and an wide ocean view right in front of the palapa where sightings of whales, dolphins, manta rays and other fish are an entertaining every day phenomena depending what time of the year you are visiting. There are beautiful hikes, one of which takes you to the next quaint little village, Chimo, where one can get cold beer, basic groceries and dine at one of the two local restaurants. Some other activities include kayaking, snorkeling, birding and fishing. You can also take day trips to other small villages such as Yelapa and Pizota by water taxi. If you are looking for a different type of vacation then look no more! More

This was an amazing experience and not necessarily for the faint of heart! The palapa was awesome. If you love camping then this is for you. Being on the edge of the jungle right in view of the beach was a calming and peaceful experience....More

We travelled with another couple that stayed in Casa Blanca next door. It was a perfectly relaxing and romantic getaway. We enjoyed the Palapa, the water, view and doing absolutely nothing if we didn't want to. Beautiful sunsets on the beach. Whales and manta rays...More

About the neighbourhood
The location is remote. It is only accessible by water taxi which leaves twice a day from Boca de Tomatlan. It is a beautiful one hour ride along the coast of Banderas Bay. The cost is about $10.00 per person each way. Boca de Tomatlan is about a 30 minute drive from Puerto Vallarta and 45 minutes from the airport. The village os Chimo is about 2 miles from the palapa house where one can get groceries, beer and fish. There are also 2 restaurants in Chimo. Chimo is about a 45 minute beautiful hike, or you can take the water taxi there as well.
How to get there
Puerto Vallarta is the main airport you need to fly into to get to our remote palapa house at Chonchos Beach. If your flight arrival is after noon, you are best to arrange a night stay at PV, or surrounding area. You can take a taxi straight to Boca de Tomatlan to take the Nayeli water taxi to Chonchos. The water taxi leaves at 9:00AM and 3:00PM from Boca.
