 Accès

From Puerto Vallarta, head North on 200 until you see signs for Chacala. Make a left into this small fishing village and head to the boat docks. The fishermen there will be happy to take you by boat to the break for a fee. You can also drive North from Puerto Vallarta to Costa Azul Adventure Resort and pay to go on the morning surf trip. It's about a 40 minute drive North of Costa Azul, and it's best accessed by boat because there's nothing on the rock-littered beach.

 Informations supplémentaires

This is a VERY fun left! We surfed it for a few days in May in the chest to 2' overhead range. The take off was pretty mellow, and the wave would allow you to get a few nice, long turns in before coming into the racy inside section. Be sure to kick out before getting too far inside, or you'll be doing the rock dance and picking urchins out of your body for sure. We also had an incident with a needlefish the last day we surfed there. My wife was duckdiving and a 3' needlefish was swimming through the wave at the same time, and its needle nose jammed into her arm and broke off about 3". We had to get the boat back and rush her to the hospital, so be cautious if you see these guys swimming out there even though they are harmless!

Atmosphère

We had a great time at this spot. It can get a little "over-populated" at times, but there are a few different places that you can take off from. When it's on, you can pick off the wave from the point and take it all the way to the inside. If there are a lot of people out on the point, you can also sit a little more on the inside because there are a lot of waves that make it through unridden. The atmosphere is unreal! There's no beach population in this area, so it's just you and the beautiful nature that surrounds this break. There is a little beach area where you can sit and relax if you get surfed out. It's also a great place to store your cooler for a lunch break, etc! If you're in the area, this break is a must!

NOt worth the trip - I was in Chacala recently and it is crowded with rich gringos that Think they own the place, it was really disapointing, there was even a Guy from Phoenix, I literally wanted to Kick him out of the water and get him back to his beloved country.
The wave is weak, mushy left for old longboarders
The boat ride is expensive and the drivers stole money from our bags while we where surfing, they admited it later but we never got our money back
Go there if you want to get Skunked

Fun Waves - I surfed there and there were some really fun waves. I was by far the best surfer in the lineup as nobody was taking off next to the point. I had all the overhead lined up lefts I wanted. I probably caught 30 waves in the two and 1/2 hours I surfed. I was dropped in on by a couple of locals but I didn't care, I would tell them to go and then cheer for them. Just keep a good friendly attitude and you will have fun. Don't be afraid to share with the locals.

Chacala dreamin - unfortunately i have to agree with the majority of these posts...a dream lineup, only breaks well on a swell with alot of west in it...then it does get super fun...ive only gotten it like that 2X in the times ive checked it on those conditions..but thats where it ends..when we were there the boneheads from Costa Azul pulled in and started hopping the locals...some stupid group from San Clemente that thought they still needed their Trestles mentality, stay home....justice was served, and some Local rode right over the board of the gringo barney who hopped him...nice slash across his board (word of advice in this area..most of the Costa Azul people rely on the transportation of the guides, they stand around and haggle about where to go on any given day, so if you have your own transport, haull ass early and youll get it by yourself for awhile....)
