The word chava/chavo is used in Mexico for sure. As for other locals, I don't know.

Thanks for the input. Do you speak Mexican Spanish?

In Spain we don't use "chava"
we mainly use "chica" and some others as well

"aquí" lleva acento porque no se pronuncia "A-qui," se pronuncia "a-QUI."

Thanks for the correction on the accent. I think I pronounced it correctly but certainly didn't write it correctly.
Sincerely,

Maria,
Chica sounds good all around. I'll take a Chica or a Chava.
Good to hear from Spain.

"venía a ver A una chava": it is missing the accent on "venía" and the personal "a" because of the human/animate direct object. Otherwise, it looks good!
