All meals and non-alcoholic beverages are provided and included. A regional chef and his assistants that work exclusively for Casa Chac prepare the food. An average morning consists of local fruit, juice, eggs, pancakes or French toast for breakfast along with some local Mexican traditional breakfast dishes served with a great regional and fresh cup of Mexican coffee. The lunch coolers have sandwiches, fruit, chips, bottled and or purified water and cokes. Beer may be requested the day before but is not included. For the non-fishermen, our Chef prepares a traditional Mexican lunch everyday. Dinner choices range from fresh fish to chicken fajitas and lobster when in season. Soups are one of the cook’s specialties and homemade desserts are also served nightly. All is tasty, healthy and always ample. Bottled and or purified water and ice is served for drinking along with sodas and wine.
Happy Hour is served with fresh ceviche, nachos, quesadillas and other local favorites everyday after fishing arrivals and showers. It is held in any of three areas desired, rooftop Palappa, pool table lounge, fly table or outdoors on the patio which is the most favorite because local guides and Casa Chac guides usually migrate there to tell fish stories! Full bar service is available at all three.
The full service bar is available in the dining room, but feel free to bring your favorite spirit. Alcohol is easily obtained along the road from the airport to Tulum – just mention to your driver you are interested in stopping to make a purchase. There is no charge at the lodge for bottle service and the bar is limited in selection of spirits especially in the non-national ones.
The rooms at Casa Viejo Chac are as good as you’ll find in Punta Allen – clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned. Each has it’s own private bathroom with hot water showers.
Casa Chac offers a Palappa rooftop ocean viewing area for a great place watch the stars or to smoke a cigar. The second floor lounge has a pool table and a table for tying flies. This is the area where tackle and rods are lined up by staff after a fresh water bath is done on all. The Spanish “siesta” with hammocks can be practiced in this area. There is an area for fly casting lessons and priactice just outside the front door and patio furniture for Happy Hour and appetizers. The dining room is actually a restaurant with a full service bar that serves to locals and tourists in the village.
