Stopped in at Chicos Paradise on the way to the Botanical Gardens. Just had drinks, chips , guacamole and pico de gallo. Service was good and it was entertaining to watch the people on the Zip lines. Would return.

We went up with a small group of families, kids through grandparents. Despite all the holiday crowds in and around PV, we nearly had the place to ourselves. The friendly staff served us a delicious lunch, then the kids bounced around by the creeks, rocks, and waterfalls. After that, they arranged a zip line tour for just our family. The... More

We always have to visit this spot on top of the mountain. We love to watch the divers and the food is always great.

If you are going to visit PV, this is a MUST on your to-do list. When you drive up, it looks like a dive, but don't let that deter you. This is THE place to eat in PV. When you drive up, there are usually some kids that open the doors for you and greet you warmly. (we gave them... More

We just had appetizers and a drink. The service was good, and the food that we had was good. The zip lining was fun, and fairly priced. The guys that guide you through on the zip lining were extremely friendly, they were humorous and did not try to speed you through. The only downside was that they really overpriced the... More

We have been coming here off & on for 20 years ... This time 6 of 14 people got very sick, for 3 days, after eating the fish, lobster & crab here. No quality control during the off-season. Avoid the "Mariscos" - even our driver would not eat their food !!

the watherfalls are great, the food is Terrible, the waiters only "smile" when they see a "gringo". the birds live on terrible conditions, i even look for some "chiles" on their plate... all dirty. the flavor of the food bad.. maybe if they cook more easy dishes

I really enjoyed this location. However, make sure to travel with bug spray if you go here. I had bites all over my legs by the time we left. Other than that it was a great time. We actually had 3 people that went zip lining while we stayed at the restaurant and watched, they all had a great time!... More
