Dining in Chacala Mexico is some of the best in all of Mexico!

If there's ever a difficult decision to make when vacationing in Chacala, it would be whether to have the cooks come to pamper you with amazing meals at your villa, OR to eat ocean front at the beach club, OR to go out to eat in the village. What a tough choice! We find that the quality, convenience, and enjoyment of having the majority of your meals prepared for you at your villa usually provides the best vacation experience. But having a meal or two at the beach club isn't to be missed and you'll definitely want to check out a restaurant or two! Below are our suggestions to provide you with the very best vacation experience.
