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

The last time I was at Chico's was a little over 20 years ago and I decided to take my 2 young adult children there to experience the cool pools, waterfalls and cliffs for jumping. We had a great time on a hot day in August and one of the cliff diver/lifeguards there named Marco, was so kind after I... More

Visited during low-season so they weren't busy. Beautiful surroundings with creek cascading below. We had the seafood special that was supposed to be for 4, but it was really enough for 6 or more. Delicious, and so were the margaritas! Watching the zipliners go by was fun and the diver was amazing. Bring cash. As the menu indicates "No Credit... More
