Chicos Paradise Restaurant Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

On a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico, my wife and I wanted to return to Chico's Paradise. We discovered it 10 years ago and found it to be exactly the same. It is a 45 min drive from town in the mountains above Mismaloya. This trip we opted for a 14 passenger van with driver which cost $35.00 USD per hour. The restaurant sits on a cliff over looking a river covered in giant boulders cut and smoothed by the water over the years. Bring a towel and a swim suit for an after lunch swim. The food is good but you will pay for the view and the experience. We shared a Surf&Turf plate which had lobster, shrimp five types of fish and three kinds of meat. Rice and Beans include we could not finish the plate which cost around $50.00 USD. If you want to zip line while you are in PV they will come to your table and strike a deal with you. Chico's is very kid friendly and a really fun half day trip while you are in PV.
