We arrived yesterday in Chacala, a charming bay with a beautiful fine sand beach lined with coconut trees, cute colorful houses and palapa restaurants. The anchoring here requires a stern anchor to keep the boat pointed into the swells. That’s a second anchor you drop off the back of the boat so that it stays pointed in a certain direction for all you non-boaters out there:) The rocking from the swell is pretty gentle if you tuck in behind the land point that protects the bay.
The mainland is lush and tropical:
