Puerto Vallarta is the nearest International airport to Chacala. Puerto Vallarta is in the state of Jalisco and Chacala is in the state of Nayarit with the coast known as ‘Riviera Nayarit.’ Driving to Chacala from Puerto Vallarta airport takes approx 90 mins. Puerto Vallarta time is 1 hour later than Chacala (important to remember when calculating the return for your flight!) The road is very good – it is a straight shot north from PV airport through beautiful jungle, farmland and small villages. It’s a 2-way highway that is occasionally slowed down by large trucks. If you rent a car, it is not a difficult drive, but there are a few road rules that are different from the US. Be sure to obey local speed limits.
A car is an advantage if you want to explore the small towns and local beaches on the Riviera Nayarit. However, using an airport taxi or a private taxi service is very efficient. Once you get to Casa Soloro you will not need a car and the local taxi services are inexpensive.
We do not recommend driving at night as roads aren’t well lit and sometimes the condition of the road can change without notice through small towns & villages.
