  • The town of Chacahua is the destination ideal for rest, several kilometres of clean beaches and little busy, as well as very friendly people, characterize this village which is located right on the place where converge the lagoons and the sea. The most economical way to get, is to take a bus that passes just outside the airport on the road to Pinotepa Nacional. After about 45 minutes of travel, and after having passed the village of Rio Grande, the combi leaves you on the cruise to the Zapotalito. From here there is a base of taxis that take you to the jetty in the village, where there are two options to get to the beaches of Chacahua: 1. is the more affordable (about $80 pesos per person) option, take a collective boat which crosses part of the lagoon and take you up to the road, where you have to wait for the bus that goes to the town of Chacahua (is only a pickup truck and leaves every two hours approximately) 2. The other option is to take a tour boat that will allow you to discover the mangroves and lagoons, the approximate time is an hour and a half. It is the best option to get, although a little more expensive. (The cost depends on the number of people making the journey, charging for boat is approximately $1,500). In the town of Chacahua there are many options for sleep, but most opt for camping on the beach.

  • It is a very relaxing place, beach, a pond, has a lighthouse which you can appreciate the beauty of the place, mangroves, and to finish a night to enjoy the effect of the bioluminescence. He has small to camping sites, cabins, very cheap restaurants and people with the best attitude. No doubt it is an escape from the city, and delve into nature (since there is no cell signal). Super recommended for lovers of nature.

  • Where do I begin? To get there, you must ride a small boat that takes you to mangrove maze allong... Endless bay beach, with blue water... to my left... To my right, a wonderfull shallow lagoon. The most welcoming and lovely people, willing to help, show, brag or patiently listen to your endless chat. The place has basic services. Do not expect high end hotels, in fact, you must bring your soap, shampoo, toilet paper and towels to your "cabin" Cement floors, two beds, and the most simple bathroom / shower you can see. No internet... Except in a few meters in the island... You can only enjoy nature! Filled with all type of birds, surrounded by turtles, whales, fish and... In the different palm roof restaurants with hammocks, you eat fresh fish (huge fresh fish dishes) all the time. Simple recepies, with such wonderfull flavours... With laughable prices! Azucena completo Ceviche, in the "In love with Pulpo" restaurant was one of the best I have ever eaten. Joyfull children, lovelly and smiling men and women live in very colourfull little town. If you like photography, that is the place to go... Turtles spawn in Chacahua beaches... men, women and children look after their eggs. I had the absolute pleasure to help just hatched baby turtles get close to the roaring sea to begin their life journey By night, the star filled sky on top of you... while you row in to luminicent lagoon... Incredible, simply magical!
