The tranquil town of Chacala, Nayarit beckons as a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. With its pristine beaches, lush landscapes, and authentic charm, this town has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the state’s best-kept secrets.

Chacala offers a wealth of natural wonders to explore. The surrounding jungles and hillsides are home to a diverse array of flora and fauna, making it a paradise for nature enthusiasts. Hiking trails and bird-watching opportunities abound, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the region’s natural beauty. A short hike up the Mirador de Chacala rewards visitors with breathtaking panoramic views of the coastline.

Chacala’s charm lies in its simplicity and unspoiled surroundings. The beach, stretching for approximately 2 kilometers, provides ample space for visitors to relax and unwind. The calm waves and gentle tides make it an ideal spot for swimming, kayaking, or simply basking in the sun. The beachfront is dotted with palapa-roofed restaurants and beach clubs that serve up fresh seafood and local delicacies, allowing visitors to savor the flavors of the region.

Its status as a hidden gem is further enhanced by its close-knit community and authentic Mexican charm. The town retains its traditional character and offers visitors a glimpse into the daily lives of the local residents. The warmth and hospitality of the people of Chacala create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.

Located about 100 kilometers north of Puerto Vallarta, Chacala is a coastal paradise that is characterized by its pristine, crescent-shaped beach, lined with swaying palm trees and clear turquoise waters. Unlike other more popular tourist destinations along the Mexican coast, Chacala has managed to preserve its natural splendor and maintain a laid-back, authentic atmosphere.

"Vallarta Lifestyles is very similar to The Agency, we have a similar client base, [residents and tourists] who seek for information about the topics that are featured in each issue; lifestyle, restaurants, and architecture, among others.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
