The heart of the Beach. Plant yourself here under a Palapa and watch the World revolve around you for a few hours. It's Gay Central..see the boys in their Speedos twerking to the tunes and think about how lucky you are to be here. Service is friendly and attentive with a constant parade of the beach vendors strolling through.

Right smack dab in the middle of the gay beach at Los Muertos, the service and food are good and there are great music beats and attractive sights. The drinks are good but the chairs could be more comfortable.

Always great service and food at the "green chairs", specially if you are lucky enough to have Gencel as your waiter! Super guy!

We always sit here as it's right in the center of the gay beach life. We spent three weeks in PV and sat in the green chairs the entire time. Keep track of what you have to eat and drink as four times the waiters tried to rip us off. Kind of put a black mark against an otherwise great... More

A day on the beach listening to the waves .. sounds like paradise. Not the case at Ritmos. While the waiters work hard and are very attentive, and the food is basic, the real problem is the volume of the music. It starts out at a reasonable level but as the afternoon progresses, it gets louder and louder until there... More

The food is ok, the staff are great and hard working. This beach club has been around for years and is going down hill as the music has escalated to the point where it is at night club volume in the afternoon. If you want to enjoy the waves -- sit far away from the restaurant and bring ear plugs.... More

Always a favorite place to spend the day except that the music volume increases over the day until it is pounding so loud it drowns out the waves. If I wanted to be in a nightclub atmosphere, I would go to one. It definitely violates the new noise laws in Mexico but obviously get$ around the law. We come to... More

Ritmos, AKA the 'green chairs' is a classic PV beach club, with surf, inexpensive drinks, and great people-watching. The menu has all the typical PV beach fare including guacamole, quesadillas and even an omelette for early risers. The waiters are among the hardest-working people I have seen in PV. The music can get a bit loud at times, otherwise a... More

Beach club and restaurant directly on the beach at the south end of Los Muertos Beach. Right next door (just south of the Blue Chairs) Live music and great food & drink, with umbrellas and palapas. Excellent service. Much better than the Blue Chairs.
