About the property

Exotic, Romantic Palapa. Watch And Hear Whales Breach, Eagle And Manta Rays Jump

Exceptional jungle palapa in Chonchos eco-resort, with thatched roof, 5 min walk to beautiful, secluded beaches. Watch whales, mantas, dolphins, birds, and other fauna right from your deck above the Pacific. Fish, snorkel, or relax on three beaches.

Our palapa sits about 90' above the ocean with exquisite views of a rocky cove. There are no railings to block your view of the whales, mantas, eagle rays and dolphins frolicking in front of your deck. The master bedroom has a Mexican queen bed (smaller than a US one). The sofa converts to a second queen bed as well. The palapa has large openings all around so this is pretty much outdoor living. The kitchen features a fridge and freezer and there are lights, outlets and inverters to power your small electronics like cell phones or tablets. The bathroom and shower are private with the shower open to the sky.

About Peter Valleau

We are two couples, Pete & Arlene and Bill and Maryann who have owned the palapa since 2008. We just started renting it out this year.

We love visiting the palapa together and also separately. It is a complete get away from our always connected lifestyle.

We love to use VRBO

Why Peter Valleau chose Mexico

Our palapa provides a unique experience for someone who wants to get away from it all. It is a magical place where you can experience nature in the jungle, on the ocean and in the air.

What makes this cabin unique

Watching manta rays the size of cars jumping out of the ocean or a mother humpback teach her baby how to slap his tail or fins has been a highlight of our stays. Snorkling and seeing a school of eagle rays beneath us was spectacular. Having a whale breach not more than 50 yards from our boat, (the water taxi Nayeli,) was a life experience.

Two weeks of ultimate relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for the use of your place Peter it was a great trip and experience! The paplapa and kitchen is really well outfitted as you said and the location great! We caught lots of fish to make and made a couple trips to Chimo for lunches, and supplies. The trip to Yelepa was fun for groceries. Being there for a longer amount of time than last year is neat because things seem to change daily with the sea and the jungle and we never tired of the beaches. Lots of whales one day, rough seas, calm seas, chacalaca alarm clock in the morning. Very special place and we hope to return.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for staying with us and your comments, Dan. It's really nice to hear such great things from someone who has stayed elsewhere in our little eco-resort paradise. We'd love to have you back again. Aloha, Pete & Arlene

So Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Ok, so we have fallen in love with Los Chonchos, and Maracuya is one of our favorite Palapas! The view is spectacular-we saw lots of whales. The palapa has everything you need for the most enjoyable stay and the owners were SUPER GREAT to work with. This place is really special...
