Exciting times are on the horizon for Puerto Chale, a charming little fishing community nestled two hours north of La Paz on the Pacific coast. This quaint spot is currently witnessing a significant development – the construction of a whopping 328-feet long, $6 million USD boat deck. It’s a project that’s set to transform this sleepy fishing haven into a bustling hub of tourism and leisure.

For years, Puerto Chale has been known for its shrimp and fish fishing. But now, it’s quickly evolving into a tourist destination, attracting a growing number of foreigners, especially during the whale watching season. And it’s not just about spotting these majestic creatures of the sea; visitors also come for fishing trips or leisurely boat tours, soaking in the serene beauty of the surroundings.

The beauty of Puerto Chale lies in its tranquility and the warm hospitality of its residents. It’s the perfect escape for those looking to break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Planning a visit? Make sure to set aside half a day to hop on a panga for an unforgettable whale-watching experience. Afterward, enjoy a delicious meal at one of the local spots in Puerto Chale, and head back to La Paz with plenty of time left to enjoy a fun evening.
