Your California Bucket List: A collection of new adventures and experiences in the Golden State for every day of 2017

Chacala, Mexico

Chacala, Mexico Situated on a small, beachfront harbor, Chacala is a less hectic and unassuming alternative to Puerto Vallarta, one hour away. Besides the beach, there is a nearby yoga-wellness center. Its American founders are credited with awakening this sleepy, untouched fishing village. It's a perfect destination to recharge one's batteries. Info: -- Michael Ambrose, San Diego
