The Fresh Breeze Inn is a cool and comfortable oasis fringed by jungle. It is an easy seven-minute walk through the colorful and safe village to the beach and restaurant area. Your new Chacala home sits on the quiet hilltop catching the afternoon breeze and affording you a stunning panoramic view of the sky, jungle, mountains, bay and the ocean stretching to the horizon. From your patio watch the fishing boats come in and the occasional pods of whales playing in the bay. Your kitchen comes stocked with fresh-ground regional coffee, bottled purified drinking water, cooking supplies such as salt, pepper, oil, sugar, and a full array of utensils. Sip your favorite drink, sit back and enjoy the perfect small-town Mexican beach experience.
Many bird watchers flock to the Inn because it has some of the best habitat for birds in front of and beside the Inn to be found in this vicinity. Over 60 species were identified here in less than a week from the front patio. I have a list of Chacala birds which is available.
The third floor bungalow (#3) fills the top or third floor of the Inn with a view in every direction and has a large private balcony facing the ocean. One must book early for this unit. It was usually entirely booked before September first. Currently #3 is only availability is from March 12 to March 29. It generally rents biweekly or more for $60 US a night or for four weeks or more for $55 a night. The two main floor bungalows (#1 & 2) have an ocean and village-jungle views with a patio in front facing the ocean and a shady garden behind the Inn. These apartments rent for $60 a night for three to six nights, for a week up to 4 weeks the price per night is $52. For four weeks or more the nightly price is $46.50 per night. The roof top patio which is available to all guests has an incredible views. All apartments have full kitchens with high quality coffee provided. The Fresh Breeze Inn was completed three years ago, so it is contemporary and clean. It is invitingly decorated with colorful Mexican tiles, a hand-painted ceramic sink and has fully-screened windows and large patio doors with ocean views in every apartment. Although rarely needed during high season, there is a ventilation fan system. The beds have high-quality mattresses, so you will sleep soundly after a day of adventuring or relaxing, secluded from the bustle and dust of the town center. The bird watching from the Inn is exceptional. Sit on your patio and identify up to 70 species. The garden area adjoining the jungle is a great place to sit and enjoy the cool breeze and shade in the afternoons. It features local fruits, flowers and tropical plants. There is a terracotta barbecue and night lighting in the garden available for guests to use.
Your American host, Lance Thorne, lives on site and loves to share his extensive knowledge of the region's hiking trails, bird watching sites, local restaurants, fishing opportunities, tours, markets and shopping, banking services, and regional transportation. Maps of local trails are also available. At the Fresh Breeze Inn, you enjoy the quiet privacy and comfort of a fully-contained suite with its own entrance, as well as the assistance of a helpful English-speaking host, happy to answer your questions about the region or translate Spanish.
Just ninety minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, you turn down a winding road leading into a magical paradise of blossoming mango groves, colorful wildflowers and a misty green lake filled with exotic birds. The village of Chacala is a friendly and authentic little fishing town, a well-kept secret hidden from the outside world until the recent road. Chacala will charm you with its minstrel mariachi bands, cobblestone streets, family-run beach restaurants serving the day's catch, homemade salsa, ice-cold beer and the perfect margarita. Local people are outgoing and helpful, and it is safe to walk around at night. The half-moon bay of soft sand is fringed by a picturesque palm plantation. The water is warm, inviting and safe.
Minutes from the activity and amenities of town, the Fresh Breeze Inn is a cool, comfortable paradise in Chacala, your new favorite vacation town.

About Lance Thorne
Welcome to the Fresh Breeze Inn. Let me introduce myself: my name is Lance , and for most of my adult life I have made high-end, one-of-a-kind furniture in rural Southern Oregon. I Have been living about half of the time here in Chacala for the past 8 years, and love its laid-back rustic charm. I live at the Fresh Breeze Inn so I am available night and day. I look forward to sharing this very special spot with you. I hike the local trails frequently and sometimes lead hikes from Chacala to various destinations. I am really enjoying my new found vocation as Inn Keeper. Being a jack of all trades allows me to deal with just about any problem that comes up. I really enjoy meeting new people and I get a kick out of helping visitors 'find what they are looking for'.
Lance Thorne purchased this bungalow in 2009
Why Lance Thorne chose Chacala
Previously I had traveled extensively in Mexico, but until I arrived in Chacala, had no intention of buying land in the country. But when I first visited Chacala, the inexplicable happened: I fell in love with the people and the town. It immediately felt like home. Within weeks I purchased my plot and began planning to build. It's been an adventure which has resulted in the Fresh Breeze Inn! I first opened for business on January first, 2010, and enjoyed a successful first season - as well as my new role as resident inn-keeper.
What makes this bungalow unique
The Fresh Breeze Inn is unique in enjoying a breath-taking panoramic 360-degree view. The cool afternoon breeze afforded by its hilltop location is a rare luxury, and the tropical garden which lies behind the Inn, and adjoins the jungle, offers you a shady quiet spot to read or relax. Lance made the local hiking trail maps and village maps so he's the one to speak with for local information. The birding from the Inn is considered to be the some of the best in the village. The Inn is located on a hill over looking the village in a pleasant neighborhood of beautiful houses with elegant stonework and flowering gardens.
