If you are looking for a private beach retreat that offers romance and adventure, Los Chonchos beach is the location for you. Casa Blanca is an open air Palapa style home located in Eco-Preserve MarSelva, also know as, 'Chonchos' to the locals, it lies just one hour south of Puerto Vallarta Mexico on gorgeous Bandaras Bay. To get to our unique property, water taxi's leave twice daily from Boca de Tomatlan and take you along the beautiful coast, stopping at seaside villages in route to Los Chonchos beach. If you are looking for a secluded and romantic vacation away from the hustle and bustle of city life, look no further.

Our oceanfront palapa home overlooks one of three pristine beaches offering peace, quiet, and beauty in every direction. Casablanca has one bedroom with a queen bed, one full bathroom, full kitchen, dining area, great room with comfy overstuffed rattan sofa and chairs. The expanded deck with lounge chairs and cushions overlooks the ocean and beach below offering a great place to siesta on the hammock, whale watch or sunbathe. The beach is a one minute walk from the casa where you can hop on our two person Hobie kayak for an ocean paddle or grab the snorkel gear to explore the many species of multi colored fish.

Whale watching right from the deck is incredible from Nov.thru March, expect dolphin and manta ray sightings too. Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, hiking, bird watching, sunbathing, yoga, exploring or just to get away for some much needed rest and relaxation........exotic paradise awaits you!

Off the grid

My husband and I loved our stay at Casa Blanca! We stayed for a week. We have traveled a lot and this location was by far the most off the grid. No internet, no newspapers, nothing to let you know what's going on in the world. It was wonderful to just relax and be with my hubby. The Casa is very nice and relaxing. We came in on the water taxi with other couples and there were both very disappointed with there palapas. One was a dump it was Lappa Lappa sp? and I felt bad that the owner did not tell them the condition of the palapa. Debbie's pics are exactly what it looks like. It is beautiful!! The loung chairs are so awesome to just stare at the ocean. We saw whales and dolphins. We always had hot water when needed. Plenty of light from the lights they have. We had flash lights in case. The hammock was so wonderful! We loved relaxing and reading in it. Kitchen great, fridge/freezer great. There are a couple people who live there year around or 5 months and they are super nice. Heather and Henry run the restaurant and are hard workers and very helpful. The snorkeling was better than we excepted but the water/waves can be very rough so some days you can't go out. I want to be clear so everyone knows what to expect. This is on a beach in a jungle. The waves are crashing on the rocks right outside your bed so it is loud sometimes. I saw giant spiders on the path. The water taxi drops you off on the beach not a dock so you need to jump off. ( I saw several people fall all the way in the water while getting off) there is no way to get any groceries unless you hike a good 45min up and over a big hill to a village where no one speaks English. So know what you are getting into. Plan what to bring, ask Debbie she is fantastic to work with. We LOVED our trip! The beach was amazing! We loved spending time with and meeting new people. We loved the hike (once was enough) and Casa Blanca is a wonderful place to relax and connect. We want to come back for our 50th bdays! Thank you Debbie for opening up your wonderful Casa and helping us have an amazing trip where we could relax!!! If you love the beach and want to get away you will love this Casa!!

"Once in a lifetime experience"
Want to have a real getaway? Want to really experience Mexico? Want to see wildlife up close and not pay a fortune? This is the place to go. Complete serenity, romance and seclusion. My husband and I just spent a week in the prettiest place we've ever seen. We were completely amazed at the beauty and serenity that Casa Blanca offered us. We spent our 21 st anniversary lying on the secluded beach watching the whales in the distance. The sunsets cast colors that keep you captivated. Be prepared to be off the grid and live simply. The people in the town of Chimo that is located a 45 minute hike away are the most gracious, generous, friendly and accommodating. The small grocery store had all that was needed for the weeks worth of groceries. The small restaurants are filled with friendly faces and great food. I felt completely safe and never worried about our belongings. The water taxi to the palapa is enjoyable and you get to see several resort areas before you get to the secluded beach of Los Chonchos. We will definitely be going back. There's so much to explore. Go on a hike and pick your own wild avocados, mangos and lemons. Go fishing with the local fisherman or just lay on the beach and listen to the waves crash. The palapa is decorated with beautiful furnishings and has all the needs of home. We found ourself forgetting what time it was and even what day it was and we really didn't care. As you can see I could go on and on about this paradise. The owner was very easy to talk to and very informative. Thanks to the owner I had an anniversary that will always be one of my favorites! You will not regret staying in Casa Blanca, just be sure you stay more than 3 days to really enjoy all that it offers!

From your departure from Puerto Vallarata by boat until you hit the beach at your palapa you are in a decompression zone! Incredible views, ONLY the needed comforts of home (lounge chair, fridge and gas stove for cooking) in an open air thatched roofed house (palapa) walking distance to two beaches - one quite secluded - my girlfriend and I loved it! I'm sure she'll be talking about it for months to come. All that and interact with only the number of people you truly want to interact with. Bring EVERYTHING you need because once you hit the beach you'll question your desire to want to leave until you have to.

5 Days of Heaven

We are two women over 60 who needed a break from a busy urban life. We purchased two huge bags of food from Ley's in PV (including one case of beer) and schlepped it to the water taxi. Once we unpacked, we did almost nothing except bask, read, play games, and birdwatch. The ocean is about 30 yards beyond your bare feet. The jungle is behind. To note: hiking is steep and rocky and we felt completely unnecessary! Kayaking - let's just say we crashed the kayak on our first expedition and didn't attempt it again. Next time I would get help from the "guys" in order to pick the "right wave" on which to enter the bay. Nor did we swim or snorkel...the water was too rough and entry (like kayaking) can be tricky. But who cared...the place is gorgeous. You can contract with a local person to cook for your party at a reasonable price. Or you can go "simple" as we did...bring plenty of papaya, pineapple, and veggies (and tasty tequila) with you. If you run out of food, you have to water taxi to Yalapa, nearby village which will take up 4 hours of your special time. Our neighbor would not go back as she needed more stimulation and loved to shop.
Shopping list: hiking shoes, lots of beer and snacks, good binocs, forget about your electronic gadgets (except e-readers)- nice time to unplug...headlamps as light is minimal after dark.
Being completely away from civilization is not for everybody, but we loved every minute and are glad we stayed for 5 days instead of 3. My wife's face actually looked different after the third day - the stress was gone and she feels as if the (a lapsed Catholic) felt her spirituality for the first time in decades.
Nod to Debbie and Dennis - they're the best.

Romantic adventure

The Palapa is truly beautiful. We arrived there after a pretty bumpy and adventurous boat ride and got really amazed by Debbie's place. The view is fantastic and the pictures do not make it justice.. We stayed there for six nights, just relaxed, read books and enjoyed the beautiful nature. We saw whales, dolphins and pelicans but you should bring a binoculars to be able to enjoy it even more.

We did the hike to the small village Chimo - around 40min hike which was fun. The small village has a couple of "small groceries stores" where you at least can buy some fresh vegetables and bread etc. We had a great lunch at the restaurant in Chimo - worth a visit, it also has a spectacular view.

For us- a couple in our mid twenties - the Palapa was great. We can't imagine a more relaxing place to stay at.

It was pretty easy to get there, a 40min bus ride from Puerto Vallarta, and a 1 hour boat ride after that.

The Palapa itself is clean and well maintained! We really recommend this place to people who wants to get away and are a bit of adventure seekers!
Owner's Response: Hi Olga,
Thank you for spending your Christmas holiday enjoying the wonder and beauty of our property and palapa home in Mexico. You were a terrific guest, best wishes for a fantastic 2014.

The water taxi stops twice daily. You can hop on the boat in the morning and spend a day in a nearby village for about $10 per person for the water taxi. A great hike is a two walk to the small village Chimo where you can buy groceries or have lunch at a seaside restaurant.
