If you have the opportunity to visit this restuarant you will not be disappointed. The location, the food, the service, the atmosphere are all superb. Beyond a doube they serve the best jumbo shrimp in PV. We highly recommend Cuale Paradise.

This place is magical. During the day you can watch the river run with butterflies flitting around, egrets feeding in the reeds. At night the gentle lighting in the trees make it a wonderfully romantic setting. The food is excellent, and the banana margaritas are...More

We were there in June. Didn't notice mosquitos but we put spray on in the evening. I would contact them directly about music. The night we were there (Wed June 20) no one else was there around 6pm and there was none.

When you get there they will provide the menu. I do not think it's online anywhere but their menu is in English and Spanish and there prices are very reasonable. They also have a wide variety of food.
