The Birding Chacala Program.

SPBO (San Pancho Bird Observatory) feels lucky to join forces with the Birding Chacala group.  Volunteers from eachSPBO logo group unite to provide guided field experience to children in Chacala schools fostering knowledge and identification of resident and migrant bird species in their area.
The Birding Chacala group compiled educational materials and delivered them to teachers at Chacala Schools. Teachers have creatively used these materials to teach about birds, habitat and conservation in a blended theme with spelling, grammar, reading and math. Students from kindergarten to high school study about birds for a month before Luis, with the help of volunteers from SPBO, Birding Chacala and the school, conducted a field study with the students and their teachers.
Binoculars all around, these children were jubilant and Entreamigos birding classesengaged. A few children were gifted in spotting and locating birds by sound. They knew the jungle forest, but they learned details about it from the Birding Chacala and SPBO teams that captivated their attention and inspired their questions. A few of the older boys are perfect candidates for birding internships.
One little boy in the very large kindergarten group proudly assured us of his first-hand experience with birds…Roosters!
SPBO will return to this community to conduct more field studies and to include interested students in birding tours. Perhaps one day, a student from this class will
build a bird touring business for him or herself; perhaps another will go to college to study birds or conservation. We at SPBO are convinced this is entirely possible!
Thank YOU!
We would like to thank our supporters for their donations at such an exciting time in the life of the newly created San Pancho Bird Observatory. The programs are moving ahead rapidly and simultaneously.

It is with deepest appreciation that we first and foremost recognize our supporters. Their emotional and financial help has fueled our successes.

Chacala…My kind of Riviera Nayarit Town in Mexico

Chacala, A Beautiful Authentic Mexico Town

Chacala is a very small authentic Mexico town (pueblo) located on the Pacific coast of of the Mexican Riviera, also becoming widely known as the Riviera Nayarit. Beautiful Chacala is about one hour and forty five minutes from the Puerto Vallarta, which is where the closest International Airport is located. VIP Transportation is a great way to get taxi service to Chacala, with three different packages to choose from.  Some Chacala rentals also have their own services.

A small fishing and tourist village with certified clean beaches, Chacala is perfect for a quiet vacation. The Chacala beach is a lovely white sandy beach cove that is great for swimming and fishing off of the rocks at the end of the cove.
The Chacala Marina has a boat ramp available, however it is a good idea to scout it out first to view the water levels. The Panga boats docked there ferry surfers out to the waves, or also conduct private tours to beautiful private sandy beaches for a few hours where you lounge and swim to your hearts content, or perhaps some fishing, or whale watching.

As far as the Chacala surfing goes, the Panga boat will drop you off and pick you up later. Las Caletas is very unique, due to it’s natural and isolated location, with jungle surrounding a slightly rocky point and bay that is most easily accessed by panga. Surfing is huge in Chacala, and surfers come from all over to catch a wave at Las Caletas.  In fact, Many of my surfer friends say they love coming out here for some of the “best rides of your life!”

Chacala rentals are plentiful. Here are a few you may be interested in with great pricing. There are many different kinds of rentals throughout Chacala from Chacala Hotels   Chacala Bungalows and Chacala Private homes, for larger groups that have more personal privacy with your own pool and ocean front views.

For some great tasting food, the local fishermen bring the fresh catch of the day to the local beachfront restaurants. You can also go to the Marina and purchase your fresh catch of the day, shrimp, lobster and oysters in the mornings at the Chacala Marina.

Rotary International
The Chacala library that was built six years ago by Rotary US and Rotary International. Back in 1996, the community of Chacala didn’t understand how to run a community service library. There only public building was the fisherman’s cooperative, which is still there today. Both private individuals and Rotary Members, as well as North Americans have dedicated their time, energy and money to keep the doors open and programs evolving.
If you are a Rotarian, the meetings are every Wednesday in La Penita, which is only 20 minutes away from Chacala in La Penita.

There is also the largest Tianguis (market) on the Riviera Nayarit on Thursdays in La Penita for shopping galore!

Due to the fact that Chacala is a small, more private pueblo, it is perfect for an amazingly romantic vacation, or a family get-away!

And, lets remember the stellar surfing! Chacala waits for you.

More Beautification for Chacala on Riviera Nayarit

New Town Plaza under way in Chacala Mexico

Chacala, located on the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico is undergoing some beautification and improvements as they are building a new Town Plaza!
While there was constant rumors regarding improvements, the proof is in seeing those bulldozers swing into action! The traditional main plaza (zocolo) that we see in every village seemed to have bypassed Chacala completely. Oh so sad. However, we are now watching a miracle take place as the addition of the SECOND plazita is now officially under construction! This new plaza has started being implemented this morning directly in front of the quaint stained glass church just off the beach. The plan is for flowers and greenery shading little bench areas as well as complete ¨pedestrian only¨ for the street that was once a thoroughfare. This will ensure yet another area for locals to congregate, wedding parties to loiter, music nights to be held, or just a nice area to sit and relax under the umbrella of the giant palms.

The expected completion date is set for one month from today, but we all know how that goes, so maybe wait to pack that picnic for a few months and come along, check it out and enjoy beautiful Chacala as the transformations enhance it even more! The first town square is more like a large walkway to the beach. This new addition will be fun!
Chacala is a perfect Riviera Nayarit vacation destination for the folks that want to relax and enjoy the surrounding beauty of the mountains meeting the beach. If you are looking for a Chacala rental, Chacala  surfing lessons, or would like a convenient location close to the beach and town, try Chacala Hostel and Surf Shop. This Chacala rental is friendly and fun, Mike and Lindy are there to make sure its the best Chacala vacation ever!
Come over to Chacala and enjoy the new plaza that is being built now, right on the amazing Riviera Nayarit in Chacala!
