This is a family run business and is a top notch restaurant. Not over priced like some on Anclote beach. The food is excellent, specializes in seafood, but also has other delicious plates. Full bar with top shelf brands. And check with them for music nights and " Yummy, guest chef" specialties. The lobster plate is filling and scrumptious. Leticia... More

Take a taxi or bus to this original Punta de Mita village. Go to the Fising Co-op to arrange your own boating or fishing trip. The whole boat is 60 an hour.

We stopped in for a couple of beers in the middle afternoon and we were glad we did. The staff was very friendly and the beers were cold. We sat under a straw umbrella right on the beach, with a perfect view. Loved It!

Very quiet beach town with high end restaurants and hotels. El Anclote condos sit high on the side of a hill over looking the beautiful beaches. The complex is well taken care of and the condo we stayed was beautifully equipped with all you could ask for! We also had a wonderful art exhibit in our condo, amassed by the... More

Looking at our reviews we do like beaches and always give an honest review. This was not that great to be honest but still enjoyable to hang out and relax. My partner surfs so whilst I sat sunbathing he caught some waves, though not for long as he said it was rather rocky in places. We did not use any... More

Thank you Leticia and staff for taking such good care of our family in such a busy week. They all loved hanging out with you and enjoying tasty snacks and drinks with their feet in the sand! You're the best!

The surf was fun and most of the locals were friendly. The curios shop ripped off our credit card by $500 but apart fro that we loved the area. Hope we can get a refund and not have a totally negative experience
