Very attentive staff. We had drinks and lunch.We both opted for the shrimp on the grill. The shrimp was very good. It is... More

We walked down Playa Blanca on a beautiful sunny day to Cabanas Chula Vida - where we were welcomed and invited to relax. Hammocks in the shade, a shower to rinse off sand or surf and the most amazing food. The menu is limited because they works with what is fresh that day - we had the wood fired dorado... More

We were served amazing food every time we ate here. The owner cooks over a wood fired grill and serves whatever has been freshly caught that day. We were welcomed and given personalized service whenever we ate here. The atmosphere was relaxed but we were eating food that was five star!!

Cabana Chula Vida is on one of the nicest beaches we've ever seen - a long, sandy beach with a nice surf and beautiful sunsets. The hostess at our lodging recommended Cabana Chula Vida and we were very pleased with the dinner, service and setting. The specialty is fish cooked on a wood-fire grill. We both had dorado, grilled and... More
